HOW TO STACK, STASH & STORE
Who doesn't want a clutter free and well organised kitchen? The number one reason why people end up with disorganised and messy cooking spaces is because they missed an essential aspect, the storage. Gone are the days when placing as many cupboards on the walls and drawers below the counter was the best storage solution. Now there are pull outs and pull downs, prefabricated wire baskets, organiser trays and corner carousels to name a few. In fact, built around the concept of modularity coupled with contemporary designs, the Cargo series wire baskets from kitchens fittings giant, Hettich can come to your rescue and transform any piece of furniture into an efficient storage solution.
With home spaces getting smaller, efficient utilisation of space becomes imperative. Ergonomics help in ensuring that no part of the kitchen is left unused. This is where the “Science of Comfort Design” comes into play. According to Hettich’s intelligent kitchens concept, there are few important points to bear in mind when planning your kitchen. For instance, the platform height in the kitchen should to be according to height of the person using the kitchen. Another way to turn your cook room into a an efficient workspace is with clever storage. Hettich has on offer larder units, bottle pull-outs that are accessible from both sides, Dispenser Duo (a compact storage system), corner solutions like a carousel and blind corner options like Magic Corners and CargoMan, which are easy to use and perfect for storing anything from utensils to food.
MAKE IT FUNCTIONAL
As per Hettich, wall units should be planned such that it is easy to reach items, thus full extension drawers like pull out kitchen shelves in wire ensure that you can see and access the backmost corner. Further the brand believes that an organiser system inside the drawers is a must. It is best to keep your provisions somewhere out of the way and yet within easy reach. Also, why waste space. Hettich says that there is a lot of space under and beside the sink for storing cleaning products and separating waste; they have under sink solution and Dish Drainers, to utlise this space.
THE ADD ONS
Hettich even has an efficient damping system that minimises noise and stress levels in kitchen fittings. The silent system brakes the closing movement. Further, multiple options in bottle/spice pull outs all you to use every inch of the kitchen. Dish Drainers also offer the options of shifting the water collecting tray to any level. PRICE on request
