Our Top Kitchen Organisation Tips

Who doesn’t love a clean and well-organised kitchen?! Where everything is within reach and readily visible…


We have a vast portfolio of project images so we thought we’d share our top tips for getting your kitchen organised and some excellent products which can help you achieve this.


  • Drawer Organisers – Both our Arrital and Effeti kitchen manufacturers supply an array of drawer organisers to help make your space functional. From cutlery drawers to crockery pin boards we have you covered.
  • Appliance Cupboards – A great way of concealing appliances and making the bench top appear neater and uncluttered. Appliance cupboards can come with retractable and sliding doors and with sliding internal drawers for easy access.
  • Waste Systems – Under bench waste systems help keep the rubbish out of sight and well organised. With recycling bin systems and spots for bin bags, detergents and dish washing supplies.
  • Concealed Power Points – Pop up power points are very useful as they can be hidden when they are not in use. See images below.
  • Spice Racks – Can be hidden in an internal drawer near the cook top or overhead near the range hood. A one stop rack to house all your spices.
  • Butlers Pantry – If you have the luxury of a large space, a butlers pantry is a perfect way to hide the mess and store less attractive items behind the scenes. This is especially popular with our trend towards open-plan living.
  • LeMans System – The innovative corner cabinet system. The LeMans mechanism pivots, swivels and pulls out of the cupboard allowing for extra storage space and a better view of the cupboard contents.


A well designed kitchen uses all of your cabinetry effectively and increases storage space for all your functional items.

For more information on how to create a functional kitchen, please have a read of our previous blog post here. Alternatively, please give us a call today on 08 6101 1190 to organise a free design consultation with one of our team.
