Our clever kitchen storage solutions will help you get organised, cut down on waste and are good-looking enough to have on display
Choose square and rectangular stackable storage containers to make best use of cupboard space
1 Style your open shelves
Open shelves can look messy. Choose stylish storage containers that look good on display and create a unified aesthetic by sticking to a tonal colour scheme. Store similar items together, add interest with pots of herbs, and put things you use often within easy reach. Don't forget to create space with our top decluttering tips.
2 Choose clear containers
Decant staples into clear storage containers to make it easy to see what’s in your cupboards. With everything visible, you’re less likely to forget about ingredients until they’re out of date, leading to less waste. Plus, you can easily see when you’re about to run out.
3 Opt for multitasking kit
Look for clever storage solutions that make the most of space. This stylish bread bin does double duty as a bread board, while undershelf baskets expand storage space. This undershelf cup rack holds up to six cups, freeing up valuable cupboard space.
4 Go for square shapes
While round storage containers look great, they don’t make the best use of cupboard space. Our square stackable storage container set is a customer favourite: “I chose them because very little cupboard space is wasted,” says one fan. “I keep buying more because they look so neat in my larder,” says another.
5 Find a place for everything
Once you’ve decanted food into containers, get busy with a label maker. Make sure it’s easy to find what you’re looking for by organising everything into categories, for example pasta and grains in one section, nuts and seeds in another, baking ingredients together and so on.
6 Cut down on food waste
Reduce food waste by having a selection of fridge- and freezer-safe containers to hand. Our smart fridge storage box keeps veggies and salad items fresh for longer, while this set of food-storage containers is great for leftovers and, when not in use, can be stacked to save storage space.
