Hack #1 – Replace Shelves With Slide Out Storage

Whatever your space, removing adjustable shelves can increase your storage up to 30%! How? The gap between shelves is generally very wide (so you can reach to the back), which then creates wasted space.

Adding stainless steel pull out baskets allows you to space things more closely, and therefore maximise your storage. Whether you have a pantry or an under bench cabinet, removing shelves will enhance your space.

Tansel pull out wire baskets fit into new or existing flat packs kitchen cabinets. There are several height options and many features to choose from – such as non slip bases and partitions. Best of all, all the wire is stainless steel and products come with a lifetime warranty.

Overhead storage is often hard to reach and sometimes left in the “too hard” basket. A pull out basket can however make the cabinet easy to utilise. Some kitchens have very limited storage so making this space easy to access is important.

Best of all, you don’t need to embark on expensive renovations to make this change – it’s suitable for existing cabinets of any type. Whether you have a hinged door or lift up door, there is a solution.

Just about all our baskets are available with non slip bases, so all those tall and small items will stay in position. The bases are also easy to remove making cleaning a breeze.

Pictured (right) is just one example of how all the space is utilised and completely accessible. Best of all, this solution is completely water resistant because the wire is stainless steel and the base is acrylic. It will withstand moist areas!
