Talk to the experts and they'll all say the key to a good kitchen lies in the planning. And it's not just the work triangle you need to consider it's also the position and functionality of the storage. Having items right at hand when you need them saves time and energy.

Blum has undertaken extensive research on kitchen design, and developed the Dynamic Space concept to streamline storage, maximise space and provide ergonomic benefits.

Managing director Brett Ambrose says this design approach recognises that the location of storage is just as important to the smooth running of a kitchen as the position of the appliances and work tops.

"The right layout of zones for equipment storage, provision storage, food preparation, cooking and cleaning all need to be taken into account at the planning stage," he says.

"Blum's Dynamic Space concept ensures the right type of storage is placed exactly where it's needed. It makes sense, for example, to have a series of drawers beneath a cooktop that are tailor-made for utensils, cooking oils, pots and pans."

Other storage options include customised cutlery drawers with Orga-Line dividers, pull-out pantries, and special pull-out shelving for accessing awkward corner units.

Ambrose says ergonomics are central to all aspects of these storage solutions. The Dynamic Space website provides advice about how to effectively place items, so that you don't need to stretch and bend. For this reason also, Blum drawers feature full extensions, so you can easily see and access contents at the back of the drawers without stooping.

The storage systems include Blum's renowned Tandem runners and Blumotion soft closing system that allows doors and drawers to close gently and quietly.
