Planning your kitchen storage

Kitchen design by ICE Interior

Designing a kitchen that’s tailored perfectly to your life is a complicated task, and there are many things to take into consideration. Storage is one thing that can often be overlooked, as people tend to focus on the exterior aesthetics of the kitchen and forget how important the inner-workings of the design truly are.

At ICE INTERIOR we believe that you deserve a kitchen that’s not only beautiful on the outside, but on the inside too, as it’s the clever storage solutions that can really help to make your everyday life in the kitchen easier.

Have you considered how clever storage solutions could improve your kitchen functionality?


A standard in most kitchen designs, people can often take drawers at sight value, accepting that they’re destined to be cluttered and they’ll be fine as an empty space to fill sporadically. However, advances in kitchen design have seen drawers come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and at ICE Kitchen Studio we have an array of accessories available to transform your drawer space for the kitchen essentials you wish to store, pop in to our Lymington studio to discuss your requirements.


For as long as our homes are box shaped, we’ll always have awkward corners to contend with, but dark and dingy corners in your kitchen can be a thing of the past with our best-selling corner storage solutions.

Utilising clever engineering, our Le-Mans solution smoothly brings the very depths of your corner cupboards all the way out to you.


It’s important that every kitchen design makes the most of the space available, and for some kitchens, especially those with a smaller footprint, it may be beneficial to make use of the full ceiling height for extra shelving or kitchen units. However, higher cupboards can result in hard to reach places, and some family members may need a little help to access the top shelf!

Our clever iMove storage solution brings the contents of your high units down to you, so the full cupboard comes into play and you have access to every item in your collection, why not pop in for a coffee and chat, and try before you buy’ as we have a working iMovie in out the Lymington studio.


Getting to the things at the back of your cupboards can be a real hassle, and stacking food stuffs can mean that some items go unnoticed and go out of date, or you end up rebuying them unnecessarily and wasting your money.

Our larders put everything clearly in sight, with an innovative system which moves the whole contents of the cupboard towards you. With quick and easy access to all your items, you’ll never lose ingredients again, or find out-of-date tins lurking at the back of your cupboards.

Whatever your kitchen design and layout, ICE INTERIOR can offer Larder solutions to suit, and all our units come with fully adjustable shelves, so your larder can change overtime as your storage needs do. 


Disposing of waste responsibly is a key concern in many households.

If your main recycling bins live outside or in a garage/outhouse building, it can be time consuming to make the journey whenever you have rubbish to dispose of. For many of us, this means a carrier bag or waste basket becomes our temporary recycling bin, making it difficult to separate glass, plastic and paper items, and it can take up valuable kitchen floorspace.

Our top-quality, multi-compartment bins are the perfect solution for helping you to keep on top of sorting your waste, whilst keeping it out of sight.

Whether you need a single unit for under the sink, or a bigger multi-compartment unit to help separate out your recycling, we’ve got the solution to help. Available with up to four compartments, our bins seamlessly integrate into any kitchen design, making your waste management an easy part of daily life. 

So, there you have it!  A few tips and suggestions on choosing appliances. The main thing though is to enjoy the research and remember – getting it right really will be worth it in the long run. Why not contact us to discuss your kitchen appliances, we would be delighted to chat through any of your ideas or even if you just want some advice. We are based in Lymington Hampshire on the edge of the New Forest.
