There are endless storage components and accessories available today that influence your time spent in the kitchen. It is best to choose ones that are practical, functional, and aesthetic.

The key to storage in the kitchen, pantry and scullery is to select the correct storage cabinets and accessories that make efficient use of your available space. A well-designed kitchen, that is functional and caters for your needs, makes for effortless living.

Power Supply

Plan and position your counter power supply at points where you will use plug-in appliances the most. A popular trend is to install a power docket on the kitchen island to charge cell phones and use appliances without taking over valuable counter space under cabinets.


Deeper Drawers are useful to store pots and stack-able items whereas shallower drawers are better for pans, cutlery, and cooking utensils.

Drawer Organisers

Organises are a great way to keep drawers tidy. They are useful in the cutlery, utensil, and gadget drawers. Grass offer a clever range of drawer dividers that you can even use to sort your crockery, pots, and plastic wear drawers.

Adjustable Shelving

Adjustable Shelves in your cabinets allow for greater efficiency when organising items. Bear in mind that shelves sized for height will hold everything in place including serving platters, spices, and trays.

Pull-Out Units

Pull-out units like drawers, grocery shelves and recyclable bins are useful to access space that is typically inaccessible. These cabinets are designed as shelves and deep drawers to accommodate specific needs.

 Tall Larder

Adding adjustable shelves to tall storage larder is a great way to create space for your groceries, appliances, and other bulky items.

Stacked Laundry Machines

If floor space is an issue, consider including a stacked cabinet to house both your washing machine and tumble dryer.

 Kitchen Island

If you have run out of wall space, a kitchen island is clever way to create more storage space into your kitchen design. And you gain extra counter space too. Add a few bar stools to your kitchen island and you have an inviting serving counter for quick snacks and entertaining guests.


Save counter space and consider adding a spice drawer or wall mounted rack. Place it neat the hob for easy access while cooking.

Under the Sink

Sink cabinets are always tricky because of the plumbing underneath. Speciality shelves are available that have a U-shaped cut out that goes around the plumbing. These are useful to store everyday detergents, buckets, and cloths. Choose a sink organiser to keep your sink areas neat and tidy too.

Wine Rack

Building a wine rack or adding an under-counter wine cooler into your design saves having to add additional furniture to the house.
