It’s amazing how much we can fit into a kitchen space. Technology, manufacturing and great design now means there are a multitude of space saving, time saving, comfort providing and aesthetically pleasing kitchen storage fittings available.

When it comes to making your final choices for kitchen storage fittings, I would make a list and prioritize it. The reason for doing this is because these fabulous space saving fittings come at a price, so unless you have a very substantial budget to work with, you probably won’t be able to have all the fittings on your wishlist. You have to work out what is a must have and what is a luxury item and work from there.

Another thing to think about when designing your kitchen is the budget and making sure you provide good allowances for these kitchen storage fitting items when you set up your budget at the beginning of your project. This could mean that having these time and space saving fixtures are more important than an expensive counter top for example, or you can make do with a lesser quality flooring product to ensure you can have your pullout pantry. The planning side of the project is when you should look at making these decisions, not once you have started manufacturing the cabinetry.
