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.”
