If you’re planning the kitchen for your new home or plotting the POA to renovate your existing one, these four smart and savvy tips will help you create a powerful and efficient kitchen.

Step 1: Keep it modular

If you’re looking for convenience, precision and flexibility when renovating a kitchen, you might want to consider going modular. Basically, you pick the pre-fabricated components you want and arrange them to fit into your kitchen space. The MOD 1 system by Alustil comes with a slew of features to choose from, including organisational drawers, pull-out baskets and lift-up systems for easy access to higher cabinets, all packaged in a sleek aluminium carcase.

Step 2: See potential in walls

Utilise your kitchen’s vertical space to minimise clutter on the countertop. Hooks, hangers and shelves drilled into the walls can present a handy spot to store things like pots, pans and utensils. Go a step further with a storage solution like this aluminium strip that’s designed to incorporate all your wall accessories in one. The Ribbon by Cafim can also be illuminated with LED lights for a sleek style statement.

Step 3: Use those corners

All L-shaped cabinets have a corner unit that’s hard to reach into, which typically means that it becomes a wasted space. Get more out of your corner storage with systems like the Magic Corner, which is mounted on the cabinet door using a clip-on system. Every time you open the door, a pull-out frame gives you easy access to things.

Step 4: Organise that pantry

Keep track of all your stored items with a storage tower. It not only maximises storage space with its full-height and customisable dimensions and generous capacity, it provides a good view of everything with its fully extendable drawers.
