Kitchen Storage Hints
Store commonly used food, cleaning or utility items in under bench roll out baskets. These also have additional stackable baskets available to increase their capacity and usable space. Shelves that create space, baskets that hang on the cupboard doors and plastic containers are other ways to find more space - particularly useful for sink cupboards.

Use the space under cupboard shelves with the simple slide on addition of under bench or under shelf baskets. Available in various sizes, they can allow for the storage of daily school lunch boxes, pantry goods or packets, lids or whatever you choose.
Fridge space can often become crammed and disorganised, wasting costly goods. Arrange sauces in a condiment caddy ready to take to the table, keep roll out shelves of like items such as cheese packets & a fridge basket of commonly used goods (eg apples or tomatoes). Stackable food containers, stackable clear fridge bins, egg holders and soft drink can dispensers are also great.
Stockpiles of herbs and spices provide one of the greatest kitchen storage challenges. Selecting the ideal spice rack or spice draw is a personal perspective to suit your kitchen layout and cooking approach but make sure it works for you.
