Optimising your kitchen storage

The key to a great looking kitchen has to be storage. Regardless of style or design, if your storage solutions aren’t working for you, your kitchen can look messy and cluttered. The age of the minimalist look is definitely here, so we took the time to explore the different options when it comes to getting your kitchen looking great and being organised!

DIY storage

If a new kitchen isn’t within the budget right now there are plenty of quick and easy options you can implement without breaking the bank. Pinterest is always a great source of inspiration when looking for organisation tips and clever hacks.

Plate Organisation

You can pick up a simple tiered plate rack from most supermarkets and homeware stores. This just help organise your dinner service and reduce the amount of space it takes up in your cupboard.

Under sink organisation

We’ve all been guilty of it at some point. In fact, many of us still harbour a messy, cluttered under-sink cupboard. Packed full of cleaning materials, bin bags and washing powder and a whole host of other unmentionables. The power of the basket – If you’ve been witness to the phenomenon of Marie Kondo, you’ll know that the queen of organisation loves using baskets to compartmentalise belongings to keep them in order.

Make use of cupboard doors

Believe it or not, there’s many a missed opportunity to utilise kitchen doors for storage. A simple rod across the inside of the door can act as a great holder for pan lids or spray bottles.

Built-in storage

Built-in storage is quite simply the easiest and most effective way to solve your storage woes. Modern kitchens have the most amazing solutions when it comes to keeping your kitchen organised.

The 2019 trend is open plan kitchens. Whether this is integrating your kitchen and dining area into one clean and airy space or opening your living room into your kitchen area too.

Create space which eliminates barriers

If you are short on space in your kitchen, or just like the idea of making your kitchen the large centre and gathering point of your home. You can opt for creating an open plan kitchen space. The open plan kitchen concept is a popular trend of 2019 and is the perfect solution for your storage needs. Opening up an area gives you the opportunity to design something out of the norm. Creating space for a kitchen island or even those dreamy curved designed workspaces.

The best way to make the open plan kitchen concept work is to add to the space, don’t keep all your kitchen cabinets flush to the wall. You have the room to bring them out and make the most of quirky storage ideas which are built to your requirements. There is nothing worse than not being able to store all your pots and pans out of sight, but with an open-plan space, this is no longer an issue.

Keeping your kitchen space clean and clutter-free will make your open plan kitchen work.

You don’t want to be sitting in your living space, relaxing in front of the fire and seeing clutter all over your worktops. This reason is why many opt for keeping these two spaces separate, but why would you? If you can stay on top of the mess.  It is vital that you do not make the counter space your drop off spot as this just adds to the clutter, so include clever storage systems, shelving or racking spaces to ensure everything has its own home – out of sight, out of mind.

An open plan living and kitchen space can create a more functional home life. Instead of shutting yourself away in a kitchen, your whole family can experience meal times and meal prep together, whether they are directly involved or not, it is the perfect place for some family bonding. In addition, it is the optimum space for entertaining, who wants to try cram 12 people round a dining table fit for 8 on Christmas day? This will no longer be an issue with your extending living and kitchen space. This home improvement will certainly make you more social.

Handsons Interiors explore the advantages of having a custom built functional space for all of your storage needs.

When it comes to your bedroom, your space wants to be minimalistic, gentle on the eye and relaxing. It is your place of rest and relaxation, so having a functional space to shut away the clutter is the perfect solution. No matter if you are an organised person or one who is more accustom to a floor-robe than a wardrobe, made to measure wardrobes are still perfect for you.

Made To Measure Wardrobes Verses Conventional Wardrobes

A made to measure wardrobe optimises space better than your conventional shop-bought, or DIY job. Maximising the space above your wardrobe for hanging, or shelving as well as space right up to the walls gives you much more of a seamless finish but also the availability to store more of your favourite shoes or party dresses.

Made to measure wardrobes are also built to your requirements so you can decide on the size of your hanging space, the size of your shoe rack and so on. Often we cram our wardrobes so full we are unable to see what is inside or are guilty of hanging numerous items on one hanger just to fit in all in. A bespoke hanging space will solve this problem. The beauty of custom made to measure wardrobes is not that every storage space has to be the same size. Hidden behind doors you can have a mix-match of different sizes of storage solutions to meet your unique needs.

Make The Most Of Your Space

Even if you’re limited on space, it is amazing some of the storage solutions which we can offer you, which will allow your clothes to not only be hung securely without creasing up against each other but in an easier to view manner. If you don’t have a huge amount of space in your bedroom, then sliding doors are a great solution. You could also consider having mirrored doors which will make the room feel much bigger and reflect more light. The perfect fitted wardrobe solution will make your made to measure wardrobes part of the wall, so they do not stand out and seamlessly blend into the background. This can also make a room feel bigger and less cluttered – resulting in a more relaxing environment to unwind in.
