Organise with wire racksDon’t assume you have to go for conventional timber or laminated shelving. This cupboard is full of neat, utilitarian pull-out wire racks that keep packets, jars and other groceries in order. There are lots of different options for similar wire mechanisms that fit standard-width cupboards and drawers, so investigate which options work for you.In general, when planning storage, work out how much space you’ll need for food, crockery, cutlery, saucepans and so on – also think about the number of people in your home. You may need more space than you think, especially if your family is growing.
