So, how should you configure the various kitchen elements to get the most out of your space? In this post, we’ll delve into various storage solutions that bring functionality and design together in perfect harmony.

Strategic planning: the foundation of tidiness

Which elements should be easier to access? To design a system that tackles your specific needs, you need to understand how the space is used.

You could, for example, divide the kitchen into areas based on their function. One area for preparation, one for cooking, and other specific places to store utensils, dried goods and fresh produce. When you have a place for everything, finding what you need is a breeze, and you won’t end up with a mess of out-of-place objects.

The next step is to choose the right place for your kitchen organisers: position them logically, near where they will be used. So, your cutlery should be close to your preparation area, and pans need to be near the hob. You could also arrange your kitchen drawers by height. You could put the utensils you use most in the first one – think knives and forks, etc. A cutlery tray makes it easier. You could place tableware in the second, leaving the third for larger items like pots and pans.
