People often struggle with kitchen sink organisation and I don’t blame them. The cupboards are usually awkwardly shaped and often underutilised.
We have since replaced our kitchen bench and sink as part of a kitchen renovation. Here is what I was working with originally:
Luckily, the exact same set up still fits with the new kitchen sink. I even managed to tidy up the plumbing a bit!
As you can see by the very uneven holes, I attempted to drill into the cabinetry. Patience and proper measuring is not my strong point, so I opted for a ‘no build’ option.
What I used:
I used two K-Mart ‘bits and bobs’ shelves and had a piece of timber cut to size from Bunnings, so I could run it across both drawers and utilise the height of the cupboard.
5 out of the 6 drawers are usable but unfortunately due to the configuration of the pipe, the one on the bottom right does not open. They house dishwasher tablets, beeswax wrappers, scourers, foam sponges and pantry clips.
Last year, I started making my own cleaning products which contain essential oils. I looked for glass bottles to keep my batches as I read that essential oils corrode plastic.
When the bottles arrived, I printed a label on some sticker paper and covered it in contact to make it somewhat waterproof.
- A copy of my labels are included in my organising guide.
- Cleaning product recipes can be found here.
Since I did this so long ago, a lot of the products I used to create this are unfortunately no longer available.
I did my best to find similar things for you:
Shop this post:
I stacked all my cleaners on some scrap styrofoam I had left over from a delivery so I could elevate the products at the back for easy reach.
This allowed me easy access to the bottles and elevated the refills.
The bottles I ordered did not come with a trigger top but I did find some at Cospak.
