How to prepare for planning:
Organise your kitchen
It does not take much effort to arrange your kitchen so that there is enough space for everything and so that everything is easy to find. Interior fittings can help you maximise the capacity in your cabinets and drawers and keep things organised. By combining different fittings, you can create a personal storage system that perfectly suits your needs.
Here are some handy tips for you when planning how to organise the inside of your kitchen:
A pull-out larder makes it easy to find and reach everything in deep cabinets. Make sure there is enough space around the larder so you can reach in from both sides.
Store heavy pots and pans near the cooking unit
Use drawers or pull-out wire baskets to put them within easy reach.
Utilise space in corner cabinets
Corner interior fittings make the most of available space.
Use the space under your oven
Under-oven drawers are convenient for storing trays and pans.
Use the space under your cabinets
Plinth drawers are handy for storing items not used every day. For safety reasons, if the drawer is used for children's toys, place it away from the cooking unit.
Use the space between shelves
Shelf inserts in different depths make smart use of space.
Maximise your storage space in cabinets
A combination of door-mounted baskets and shallow shelves make efficient use of space and create a good overview of stored items.
Keep plastic bags in place
Handy storage for plastic bags or other items can be mounted inside a cabinet door or wherever needed.
Keep spices, cutlery and utensils organised
Use spice racks, cutlery trays or drawer dividers.
Keep plates in place when drawers are opened and closed
Stack them in drawers with plate holders.
Create your own customized solution using cutlery trays with adjustable dividers.
Place waste bins under your sink
These make effective use of the space, are easy to reach and help to avoid spills on the floor. Adapt the size and number of waste containers to the size of the household and to local regulations for sorting and recycling.
Organise large cleaning equipment
Use interior fittings to organise your mop and vacuum cleaner. It will be easier to take them out and put them back in.
