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

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 long shelf lives. These versatile modular kitchen accessories utilise vertical spaces and function like a pantry.

These units when closed 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. The hideaway kitchen storage provides a cool, dry place which helps preserve delicate items and protects them from heat, sunlight and moisture.

Modular kitchen accessory #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, these modular kitchen accessories are designed with narrow shelves, making 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. In fact, they can even work as a mini pantry in a busy kitchen where guests can help themselves.

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. You can install them in both upper and lower cabinets based on how you like to organise.
