Do go for deep drawersIn the past, shallow drawers that sat above cabinets were standard in kitchens. But the modern trend for a stack of deeper drawers can make more sense and offer greater flexibility. Deep drawers can hide a multitude of sins and provide homes for things that you might once have assumed belonged in wall cabinets or even fridges. Here they’re being used for bottles of wine, water and even spare lemons ready for G&T o’clock. They’re also great for storing big saucepans and casserole dishes. As it’s easy to see the contents, they can also help to keep things organised (minimising your chances of stumbling across that tin of sardines you last saw in 2007). You can buy drawer inserts and dividers for the function that suits you. When choosing units, try out drawers in showrooms: look for good quality, soft-close mechanisms that you find pleasing and easy to use, that won’t easily slide shut on fingers. And when planning dimensions, really think about what you’ll use each drawer and cupboard for in daily life.TELL US What storage rules do you live by?

And if you really have no use for a giant fridge and freezer, consider instead a few handy fridge and freezer drawers. They can be tucked into small nooks and don’t overwhelm a space like a full-size fridge can.
2. What kind of maintenance will it need? Some appliances may require professional servicing whereas others may need domestic maintenance in order to maintain proper function. Ask the salesperson and/or read the instruction manual to find out what servicing will be needed and how often, and use that information to work out any time you’ll need to set aside for the maintenance and any ongoing costs you’ll face.
