I installed drawers inside all my cupboards (as per picture 2). I kept the top shelf raised with enough clearance to reach plates & bowls etc easily. Then had 3 drawers (not as deep as those pictured), enabled some stacking but not overstacking of serving dishes to avoid the need to unload to get items out. No double action required to access the most used items on the open shelf.

I arranged for the drawers to be made by a local cabinetmaker but InaDRAWER do similar fitouts. A lot cheaper than ditching a kitchen in very good condition.

Tansel Stainless Steel Pull Out Storage

This very deep drawer (300H) had a lot of wasted space. This stainless steel wire basket was fitted just above and doubled the storage capacity. Here is a link to the blog. It was an easy DIY project.

Living with a new but very tiny kitchen; organising drawers and deep cupboards can be challenging. The lid storage shown (which could also be used for plates, serving platters, napkins, whatever your requirements are) is such a great idea. I’ve been “stalking” Tansel products this past year since moving in; hopefully now we have settled in, we can stop looking and start “Tanseliing” our drawers and cupboards. Tansel also have super products for narrow and deep kitchen spaces, and for very shallow spaces (like herb jar depth) too. For the DIYer Tansel is top of my storage improvement list.
