Housework in compact spaces

February 23ErgonomicsKitchen
What is the best way to store household appliances in the smallest of spaces? Practical and well-thought-out furniture is a good alternative to a cluttered storage area. This creative cabinet idea therefore quickly brings order to more than just the smallest of apartments.

Useful storage space

If you haven't got a utility room, it's hard to find room to store large items such as vacuum cleaners or ironing boards. However, this utility room furniture offers space for both bulky items and much more.

The large door can be opened extra wide thanks to CLIP top wide angle hinges.

A vacuum cleaner can be placed in a special SPACE TWIN pull-out which can be fully pulled out of the cabinet, making it incredibly easy to access.

In the recess next to it, there is space for an ironing board as well as a clothes airer for washing.

Reach the highest cupboards with ease

To make optimum use of storage space in a compact space, it makes sense to design ceiling-high furniture. To ensure easy access, there's an integrated step.

This SPACE STEP comes out when the pull-out in the plinth is touched and enables easy access to the upper areas. There is additional storage space for smaller items under the SPACE STEP. In turn, large but lightweight items such as washing baskets can be stored in a wall unit with a lift system – which is easy to reach thanks to the SPACE STEP.

Practical drawers

Blum drawers offer huge ergonomic advantages for users. They are also an integral part of this utility room furniture and are either hidden behind a door or accessed directly.

The placement of the drawers at eye level keeps laundry and cleaning products out of the reach of children.

Adding a SPACE STEP to the unit makes it easy to access the upper areas.

A high fronted pull-out is ideal for storing a laundry basket. The dirty laundry is already pre-sorted right next to the washing machine so you don't have to make a long trek to and fro between the bathroom and the washing machine.

All highlights at a glance:

  • Pull-outs provide particularly convenient access, even to bulky appliances such as vacuum cleaners.

  • It makes sense to design ceiling-high furniture and an integrated step offers optimum access.

  • The placement of the drawers at eye level keeps laundry and cleaning products out of the reach of children. 

  • Often a recess is more than enough for housing a space-saving solution.
