Modular kitchen accessories play an important role in enhancing the functionality and efficiency of the kitchen. The main advantage of these accessories is that they enhance storage capacity, are highly durable, resistant to rust, and are manufactured in stainless steel. The following are the most popular accessories that are available in the market.
A cutlery organizer comes with built-in partitions which are best suited for keeping smaller items like forks, spoons, tongs, spatulas, and knives. The cutlery organizer should always be close to the cooking table so that the kitchen tools are easy to access.
If space permits, install a tall unit in one corner of the kitchen because it provides ample storage space and is perfect for storing dry groceries, non-perishable kitchen ingredients, and bulky utensils. Tall units are available in various designs; they come with slim storage on the doors and with internal pull-out systems which make it easy to access the storage. For a compact kitchen, opt for a tall unit that extends from the floor to, the ceiling.
One of the best ways to organize your utensils, pots, pans, and jars is with kitchen baskets. They are available in different sizes which makes them perfect for deep and shallow storage. Some of the most popular kitchen baskets include cup and saucer baskets, utensil baskets, and plate racks.
Here we must note that each kitchen basket has a recommended load-bearing capacity. Therefore, if the drawers are overloaded, then the alignment of the channels may get disturbed and result in the sagging of the drawers.
Make optimum use of the hard-to-reach corners of L-shaped and U-shaped kitchens so that they are easy to access. Corner units are available in the form of carousel units, L-shaped shelves, magic corners, and Lazy Susans, which rotate on a central pivot.
Bottle Pull Outs
The bottle pullouts are narrow in width and comprise two or three shelves. They can be used for storing cooking essentials like cooking oil, bottles, cans, juices, and different types of sauces. It is not advisable to store the bottles within open cabinets or the countertop as they result in a lot of visual clutter and attract a lot of dust and grime.
Since the area under the sink is usually under-utilized, an under-sink unit for storing the kitchen cleaning supplies could be ideal. Consider a bin holder on the shutter of the under-sink unit.
Dedicate one area for storing all the kitchen appliances and cover the appliances with a rolling shutter which can be opened horizontally or vertically.
If you are looking for modular kitchen accessories which can be fixed on the kitchen backsplash, then go for midway systems like a hanging glass holder, hanging cup and saucer holder, or a hanging multipurpose rack.
