Organising Your Kitchen Space
We love our kitchens being the hub of the home. But it's hard to
balance the practical with the beautiful. We show you how.
Our simple solutions help make your life easier, make meal
preparation quicker, waste less food - plus store more.
It's also incredibly satisfying: you'll have a proud sense of
achievement. Clearing clutter means less stuff on worktops,
giving your kitchen back its showroom good looks. So it's more
welcoming for friends and saves you work as less surface area
Like most storage projects, we use a proven three stage formula:
Clear out, clean out and sort out.
Remove everything from your cupboards. Recycle out-of-date food.
Give away in-date food to a food bank that you won't use again.
Top Tip: Have cardboard boxes or a large table
set-up for cupboard contents when you clear them out.
Here's where our clever storage solutions maximise your space.
Measure the height, width and depth of your storage space and
Top Tip: Also measure the opening space: often
doors and hinges means that the space you have to take items from
is slightly less than the maximum inside width.
Choose the items you need
...baskets, canisters, rails, vertical storage. Fortunately we
have them all - and all without spending a fortune...
It's in the can
Transfer everyday items... sugar, coffee, flour, lentils and rice etc. into canisters. Remember to pop-in the cooking instructions.
See-through canisters make it easy to identify the items at a
glance, plus see when you're running low.
Squaring the circle
Who says storage should have rounded containers?
We love storage containers with squared-off profiles. They
maximise every nook and cranny in cupboards, fridges and
freezers. And as it's from us, you know they have a square-deal
Our Omnia collection of kitchen storage canisters
and Clear Kitchen Storage Canisters are two of
our best selling square-edged solutions.
Add Shelf Liners
You could just add some sturdy lining paper, thick brown parcel
paper - or even old wallpaper. They also help protect shelves
from scratches - and glasses and cups etc. from chips.
Our easy-to-cut-to-size Elfa Shelf Liner is sturdy, frosted and any
spills can simply be wiped clean.
Choose stacking storage
Our Stacking Lidded Fridge Storage has squared
off edges and is indented - it's made to be stacked.
It's an awkward problem area. But our clever Cabrini Under Sink Organiser e-x-p-a-n-d-s
from side-to-side from 48-64cm to fit around your plumbing.
Our Elfa Easy Glide Storage in 35cm or 45cm wide
Baskets give you easy under-sink access. Just slide out the
basket on runners, grab what you need and slide it back.
It's buried in the cupboard somewhere
Invariably the item you want is hiding at the back. You then have
to pop on your pit helmet and set out on an arduous trek through
the jungle of jars until you find it. Then put everything back
Surely there's a simpler way?
Our Elfa Basket & Universal Runners stop items getting lost or forgotten. You simply slide out the whole cupboard contents in baskets on rails.
Storage for everything
We've oodles of storage options for cupboards, drawers and fridges: / wicker storage baskets, storage boxes for
Tea Bags, Meat and Cheese. Plus, storage for Packets, Water Bottles and an Egg Slide tower. We've even a Lazy
Susan-style in Cabinet Turntable and Corner Storage.
Add hooks inside cabinets for
tea/coffee cups, to free up the space underneath.
Top drawer solutions
Thrown in cutlery and utensils look cluttered, can damage knife
blades and the noise can grate on your nerves. Try our Drawer Organiser Sets, In-Drawer Spice Racks, and Cutlery Trays.
Top Tip: Store spices and herbs away from your
cooker or hob as heat can kill the flavour.
Store more on your door
Maximise your vertical space, minimise your footprint. Our
Elfa Door and Wall Rack stores items on your
kitchen doors or inside/outside long cupboards. Our Kitchen Over Cabinet Hook, Kitchen Over Cabinet Towel Rail and Cupboard Door Carrier Bag Recycling Bin store
more on kitchen cabinets and drawer fronts.
Stow, stash, stack - upwards
We've Vertical Plate Racks, Stacking tiered shelves for inside cupboards
and under sinks, plus clever Mesh Under Shelf Baskets to hang underneath
shelves/kitchen units. Or store on your wall with our Utensil Holder.
Use stacking tiers to separate dinner
plates from side plates and bowls.
Our stackable bin is a super space-saver. Made from recycled
plastic, it maximises your vertical space, only using one small
footprint however many bins you stack.
A way with wine

plonk to hand. We've made to measure freestanding, stackable to your ceiling, and hung on your wall.
