No matter what size your kitchen is, you’ll always need just that little bit more space. Even if you don’t relish the thought of spending time in the kitchen, you have to admit that kitchen showroom displays can be enticing. It can be difficult to resist those super stylish appliances and utensils, even when you haven’t got a clue what they do! This is one of the main issues we face in the kitchen: the hoards of gadgets and appliances…and the ensuing lack of space!
If you really want to make life easier, here are 5 tips to improve and optimise your work surfaces.
Wall-mounted storage solutions
Wall-mounted storage solutions (suction cups, self-adhesive, modular, etc) let you turn the kitchen walls into storage spaces: soap dishes, rails with hooks for utensils, serviette holders, etc.
Keep everything handy. Note that suction cups can be repositioned as often as you like, so you can change the location of your storage solutions according to your needs.
Dish racks and shelves
One of the most difficult tasks to complete in the kitchen is sorting through the cupboards. Dishes, pots, and pans tend to be rebellious, ganging up together to create total havoc in the kitchen cupboards…Say goodbye to those moments where you have to precariously lift 6 soup bowls with one hand to get to the dish below. Organise dishes, tableware, chopping boards, bowls and glasses neatly thanks to Compactor.

The expandable storage shelf is perfect for organising the cupboards under the sink: it allows you to store dishes, plates and bowls. And for wine lovers, this is a great place to keep a wine rack.
Drawers will be messy as long as you don’t make use of a drawer organiser. This organiser can be modular or rigid (for example bamboo trays): you can organise your spices, cutlery and small kitchen utensils.

Baskets help you to keep the kitchen tidy, but they also make the room more visually pleasing too. Natural fibre baskets are the most popular. You’ll find a wide range of models—bulrush, bamboo, rattan, water hyacinth, or even woven paper—on the Compactor website.

Those little extras!
A pull-out mixer tap with spray function: try it and you’ll never look back! These make washing the dishes that much easier. You’ll save time and energy.
And of course, a shopping trolley: choose a sturdy, practical model, such as the Compactor isothermal shopping trolley. We hope these ideas will improve the daily grind: why not leave a comment at the bottom of the page?
