Higher density living is on the rise and with that, more people are living in townhouses, apartments and smaller houses. Living in more compact spaces, homeowners want to maximise the use of the space they have. Even in larger homes, storage space in kitchens is precious, with designers looking to maximise every last millimetre of cabinet space.

Hideaway Bins have recently revamped their Hideaway Compact range of bins which are specifically designed to give the biggest bin for the smallest space. “We’ve designed our range specifically for New Zealand cabinetry” says Hideaway Bins General Manager, Jamie Bertelsen. New Zealand cabinetry is unique in its dimensions compared to standard European cabinets. Our cabinets are generally deeper, around 550 to 600mm deep, so European-designed kitchen bins, which are typically around 480mm deep, aren’t the ideal solution for maximising space in New Zealand kitchens.

“By using the full depth of the cabinet, we are able to make our bin systems narrower, with many options in the Hideaway Compact range fitting 300mm or 350mm wide cabinets”, Bertelsen says. “This offers a significant space saving over many European bin systems, which is critical when designing for smaller spaces.”

The other important factor to consider is ergonomics. The ideal position to locate your bin is at bench height, so that waste can be easily removed from the bench and into the bin. In settings such as retirement villages or apartments owned by older people, consumers want solutions that limit bending or reaching below sink spaces or into cupboards.

The upgraded Hideaway Compact range is being specified in

these settings because it is designed to be top-mounted under the bench, and pulls out easily towards the user. The bin system is on soft-close ball bearing runners providing a smooth, light movement. These runners also over extend, so that the bin has plenty of clearance beyond the bench top when it is fully open. This means that the rear buckets can be removed and emptied, without the fuss of having to remove the front bucket, which is essential for twin bin systems.

Hideaway Bins is at the forefront of bin design, manufacturing storage solutions in New Zealand, designed for New Zealand homes.
