A well-designed kitchen means creating a space where one task flows naturally to another. (Rawpixel pic)

Kitchen cabinets are probably the most used pieces of furniture in the house. A well-designed kitchen means creating a space where one task flows naturally to another.

A good example is having the food prep area near the sink, and the cooking area near the pot storage. Sufficient storage is also key.

Here are some creative ideas to customise your cabinets and make use of every inch of space.

1. Hydraulic lift kitchen cabinet doors

This unique lift-up cabinet door can be opened without it swinging open into your face and banging into other open doors. And by opening fully to the top, it makes things easier to reach.

A hydraulic lift means heavier glass doors can be installed that improve the look of the kitchen.

2. Pull-out dinnerware cabinet

This pull-out cabinet is just what is needed for those with a large collection of dinnerware. It allows easy access to the things that are tucked at the back of the shelf and makes things easier to find.

3. Corner revolving rack

The cabinets in the corner conceal a lot of wasted space. A Lazy Susan can help to solve this problem and make things look tidier.

4. Pull-out spice rack

A pull-out spice rack is a convenient, efficient way to store spices using any narrow spaces in the kitchen.

5. Garbage bin with pull-out chopping board

This pull-out chopping board combination with a garbage bin is what we all need. As you are chopping, just throw the waste right below.

6. Roll-out kitchen island

A kitchen island is super useful, but it takes up space. This roll-out island on wheels can be tucked away when not in use.

7. Railing for hanging pots

Add storage space to a small kitchen with railings to hang pots and pans on. This gives a more industrial feel to the space.

8. Magnetic knife strip

A magnetic knife strip is a good alternative to the traditional knife block. Place it to close to your food prep area and if there are young children at home, put it higher up so they cannot touch.
