Transform your life with this clever kitchen sink storage hack

Transform your life with this clever kitchen sink storage hack

The cupboard underneath the kitchen sink can sometimes become the most neglected part of the home, and due to not being on display, is the place where people store cleaning supplies and other things that don’t seem to have a place.

But it doesn’t have to be that way, as one woman has turned the nook into a Pinterest-worthy space.

Iryna Federico, an Interiors blogger from Adelaide, took to her blog to share how she managed to turn her kitchen cupboard from drab to fab.

The post then encouraged others to share their own secrets.

“I detest the ugly plumbing pipes under the kitchen sink so I was determined to find a way to hide them as much as I possibly could when I was working on organising the space,” wrote Iryna on her blog From Great Beginnings.

To start off, Iryna took a trip to her local Kmart and purchased two “bits and bobs” shelves and also had a piece of timber cut accordingly from Bunnings.

The wood was then covered in vinyl and placed on top of her shelves.

She took out the acrylic storage units from her fridge and used them to store excess products such as bin bags, paper towels and dish sponges.

“I purchased the glass bottles and labelled them accordingly to house my home made kitchen cleaning products and stacked them on some Styrofoam I cut to size to replicate the Kmart three tiered shelf which did not fit there because of that pipe,” she wrote.

The post prompted other women to follow suit, as her loyal following shared photos of their organised cupboards using the same products as Iryna.

“Oh my gosh I needed to see this. My under sink cupboard is atrocious,” commented one user.

“Looks so good! Great idea for the shopping bags. Might have to do this,” said another.

Iryna took to Instagram to let people know that despite being an organising aficionado, it’s okay if your house isn’t spotless all the time.

“It’s about setting up good systems that work well and cater to individual lifestyles so when things are a mess, it’s not a time consuming, overwhelming chore to get things back to a happy medium,” she said.

“Do what works for you and don’t compare yourself to other people.”
