Under the kitchen sink storage

I did this under the kitchen sink storage DIY a while ago, but because it’s the beginning of the year and we all seem to be obsessed with cleaning and culling I thought I might re-post it.

Isn’t she pretty? Ha! Jokes! What a mess. I bet yours isn’t much better? It’s such an awkward spot and a dumping ground. I really wanted to make it more usable. So, I decided to add a hanging rod and attach baskets up high to make the most of the space.

Here’s what I used:

  • I had the drill and cordless grinder already
  • hanging rod and brackets
  • cable ties
  • baskets that can be purchased from a hardware store


  • I used the grinder to cut the hanging rod down to size. This was only a 20 second job.
  • Drill the brackets to the side walls. Another simple task.
  • Then attach the baskets with cable ties, trimming off the excess and you’re done!

A few months on and it still does look this neat. I’ve been maintaining the mess under my sink well because it’s much more usable.

Happy culling! ♥ KC.

    Looks really good. I have managed to get rid of nearly all my cleaning products by switching to ekoWorx (not affiliated with the company in any way, just a happy customer). The baskets would be a handy way for storing the cloths and solution.

      I’ve actually just bought some and waiting for it to arrive. Can’t wait to try. 🙂

      Cool. I would be interested to know what you think. People either seem to love it or they don’t like it at all. I hope you are the former. If you do like it, the big 20 litre drum works out being much cheaper.
