We’re all spending more time at home together, which makes the need for an organised kitchen more important than ever. The latest furniture solutions from Eggersmann create a seamless, uncluttered finish no matter how busy the space may become.
HOW TO ORGANISE A KITCHEN
'The trick to an organised kitchen, regardless of how many people may be using it and what you’re needing to use it for, is to focus on storage,' comments Eggersmann UK’s Director, Daniel Bowler.
'There are many clever kitchen solutions to help, and by taking on board a few hints and tips the kitchen can be a stylish, highly organised and functional space, to work, cook and play in.'
1. CREATE A DEDICATED BEVERAGE STATION
If you’ve been enjoying a caffeine fix at home since lockdown, invest in a coffee machine for barista-style coffee. Think about creating a dedicated coffee station that can be hidden behind cupboard doors when not in use and keep everything in one place for an uncluttered finish.
2. GET YOUR DRAWERS IN ORDER
The pandemic has seen more and more of us turning our hands to home baking. Whether you are a keen chef or a novice cook, clever kitchen storage ideas and drawer organisation is essential in giving you quick access to all the essential tools, from rolling pins and serving spoons to carving knifes.
3. UTILISE EVERY INCH OF A PANTRY OR CUPBOARD
Full length pantry-style larders help keep smaller items organised and within easy reach. Think about incorporating these with sliding doors to hide things away with ease, and why not think about hiding appliances behind cabinetery? They can be forgotten about when not in use, which is perfect in a kitchen that turns into a social space for entertaining in the evenings.
4. MAKE THE MOST OF AN ISLAND
Make the most of your island unit by including space for hanging pots and pans above and chopping boards and tea towels to one side, just like the professionals.
5. INCLUDE PLENTY OF SHELVING
Open shelving offers plentiful storage to show off your best barware and personal touches. But not only that, it works as a great room divider, helping to add definition and create zoning to a large, open-plan kitchen/living space.
