Space for everything

Prices starting at: ₹10,037

If most of your storage items are set to go under your counter, then drawer systems are go-to modular kitchen accessories. These drawers trump bottom cabinets for ease of use and optimum usage of space.

The Tandem box drawer systems from Blum offer shallow as well as deep storage space. They come with sturdy metal sides which open out to their entire length so that all items are fully visible. 

Pro Tip:

These drawers, even when loaded to their maximum capacity, ensure the items inside are not fully displaced when closed suddenly.

#2: Tall Units

Stock your knick-knacks and groceries

Prices starting at: ₹11,540

Tall units are an integral part of kitchen design. This is especially true in cases where one needs to store huge amounts of groceries with a long shelf life. Moreover, these versatile accessories for the modular kitchen utilise vertical spaces and function like a pantry.

When closed, these modular kitchen storage units look like a part of the kitchen’s wall, giving the space a clean look. At the same time, they house diverse items from oil and seasonings to wine and munchies and more in differently sized drawers and shelves. 

Pro Tip:

The hideaway kitchen storage provides a cool, dry place that helps preserve delicate items and protects them from heat, sunlight and moisture.

#3: Pull-outs

Pull-outs make the best use of narrow spaces in the kitchen. Usually installed near the dishwasher or towards either end of the kitchen, this modular kitchen organiser is designed with narrow shelves. This makes items easy to spot and access.

Pull-outs are available in multiple widths and ranges and can be used to keep canned foods, condiments, bottles, jars, cleaning agents, etc. 

Pro Tip:

Pull-outs can even work as a mini pantry in a busy kitchen where guests can help themselves.

#4: Cutlery Trays

With compartments to hold everything from spoons, forks, knives, rolling pins and more in an organised manner, cutlery trays are versatile. This is a great way to do away with clutter and is especially handy when whipping meals in a hurry.

Space-saving corner unit

Prices starting at: ₹10,464

Corner spaces in kitchens typically go unused because they are hard to reach. However, you can access the most redundant corners with savvy solutions such as the LeMans corner. It features kidney-shaped pull out shelves that rotate beyond the standard 90 degrees so that they fully retract into the back. 

Additionally, you can find other corner units (deep, diagonal drawers) that make good use of the corner space. These solutions include Dee tray, Magic corner and more. These clever, easy-access modular kitchen accessories are a great addition to Indian kitchens, especially those small in size. 

Pro Tip

You can install corner units in both upper and lower cabinets based on how you like to organise things in your kitchen.

Bonus Point: Wicker Baskets

Easy-to-clean baskets for veggies

In a kitchen that is not fully modular, you generally have a basket or tray to keep a daily stock of vegetables. In a modular kitchen, this function is fulfilled by wicker baskets set into the modular framework. These baskets are durable and easy to clean. Plus, like everything else in your kitchen, the veggies too are seamlessly concealed.
