Why organise your kitchen units?


Designed to make your space more convenient to use and nicer to look at, kitchen unit organisers come in a number of forms, including revolving trays and slide-out shelves. These interior storage solutions allow you to maximise space and prevent your cupboards from getting cluttered.

They help to ensure your kitchen utensils are always close at hand and free up worktop space. Dimensions, design and materials are the main points to consider when picking your accessories.

Different types of kitchen unit organisers

Corner shelf unit

These handy accessories allow you to make the most of the inside corner of the unit. Easy to install at the base of a cupboard, these units come in a range of different sizes. They're often sold as a set of several trays or shelves with dedicated areas for plates and ustensils, for instance.

Revolving trays


Revolving trays are also a great option for maximising corner storage space. They are available in several forms:
  • round
  • semi-circular
  • kidney-shaped
They also come in a range of materials, including:
  • shock-resistant plastic: strong and hard-wearing
  • stainless steel: strong and durable


Sliding shelves

If you're looking to make your kitchen super functional, a sliding shelf ca help to free up space around the sink and worktops. These models are also available in a range of formats:
  • sliding columns, great for spices and small bottles e.g. condiments;
  • sliding baskets, to store plates, household products and tea towels.
Some multi-functional containers even have a built-in canvas pouch for storing bread.
