It is a rarity to hear anyone say they have too much storage in their kitchen. With people always stating they need more storage, only reinforcing the importance of an effective storage system. Future proof your kitchen when designing or renovating your kitchen by adding as much storage as possible to eliminate the need of tacky and ineffective storage solutions. Follow our ideas to eliminate your storage issues.

Smart Storage Solutions

Replace cabinetry with cupboards that extend to the ceiling. This design minimises dust due to its positioning, creates practicality and most importantly maximises storage. Place everyday used items in lower shelves while plates for parties can be stored in the higher shelves.


Organisation is in and clutter is out. Effective storage in drawers and pantries are becoming a standard feature rather than an additional item later on. Appliances can be shown off in exposed shelving or if they are a bright block colour can be displayed on bench tops to break up colours and finishes. If you have the room consider a ‘butler’s pantry’, which is essentially a second kitchen within your kitchen. If you entertain frequently this can help to organise everything easier by storing otherwise left out food and small appliances away.

Deep Drawers

Opting for drawers over cupboards for under bench storage helps to utilise all potential space. You may have to remove many items in cupboards before finding the item you were looking for. While easy to pull out deep drawers offer functionality to store pots and pans. Latest designs offer two sliding mechanisms levels in one draw to layer items and create more accessibility.

Multi Functional Kitchen Islands

The biggest storage saviour is a kitchen island serving as a central gathering place and the focal point of many kitchens. There are a wide variety of sizes, finishes, materials and multi-functional elements to think about when incorporating an island. You can choose from open shelving to show off cookbooks or decorations, handle less cupboards for seamlessness or drawers to keep neat and out of reach of kids. Islands can cater to all personalities, as storage is easy to change. Choose what best works for your style and functionality.
