How To Enhance Storage In Flat Pack KitchensEditorial Tanya
Enhance storage in flat pack kitchens to give them loads more functionality and better storage. It’s easy! You’ll love our tips and tricks to give you greater access to the back of the cabinet, reduce clutter and improve your overall kitchen storage.
1. Remove The Shelf
Shelves in your flat pack kitchen come as a standard – they do the job. Over time however, getting things from the back will be a challenge. You probably have very wide spacing between the shelves, about 32-35cm, so you will lose valuable storage space.
Solution: Removing adjustable shelves and adding slide out storage can increase your storage space by as much as 30%.
2. Add Slide Out Storage
When you remove the shelves, you have a blank canvas and can really use the space to it’s full potential. Using slide out storage such as wire baskets (or kitchen drawers) will give you far more functionality and kitchen storage space.
For Example: You can have up to 7 slide out baskets in your kitchen pantry. Best of all, everything is visible and perfectly accessible.
3. Maximise The Storage Space
To really make the most of your space, you need to group things that are of similar heights together. And store them together.
We recommend 1-2 baskets that will store all your tall items. These baskets are generally taller (150H). You can then add as many shorter baskets (100H) as you require.
4. Add Extra Features, If You Require
Non slip bases are a good addition when storing tall items (or glass Masterfood spices). This will give things stability when you’re pulling the basket in/out. It also makes for easy cleaning should things spill.
5. Easy Installation
These baskets are super easy to install. Slides have a special built in spacer that will clear your hinged block and door obstruction.
