1 De­cide on the cup­board’s main pur­pose. If you need it to serve as a stack­ing spot for any un­sightly kitchen items, such as brooms and mop, take out ev­ery­thing else and find a new home for it. If it’s go­ing to be where the vac­uum cleaner and iron­ing board live, make sure you can get them out eas­ily.

2 Take ev­ery­thing out. Not only will this give you the chance to sort as you go, but you can also have a good look at the space. If you de­cide the in­te­rior needs a lick of paint, try a wash­able op­tion like Du­lux Lux­u­ri­ous Silk, from R179 for 1ℓ, Builders Ware­house, mak­ing it easy to wipe off scuff marks.

3 Use hooks. Make the most of wall space and the back of the door to hang things up off the floor, putting items like vac­uum-cleaner heads in tote bags. Buy a hook for your iron­ing board to get it out of the way, such as the Vor­mann 851000

EDI Hook, R22, Builders Ware­house.

4 Go for move­able stor­age.

Trol­leys are ideal for hous­ing things, and they’re easy to pull out so you can ac­cess things be­hind them in a jiffy. Buck­ets can house clean­ing bits and are quickly lifted out of the way.
