Get the Most out of Your Custom Built-in Bedroom Cupboards

Let’s face it, most built-in cupboards make it nearly impossible to be space efficient. One feeble shelf at the top, a few narrow shelves on the side and a flimsy rod are not exactly designed to make your closet spacious and effective, leaving you with wrinkled clothes and your shoes a mess on the cupboard floor.

 Is your existing closet an organisational nightmare? Do you wish you could transform it into a space-efficient dream closet? We’re here to tell you that it’s possible to have a closet, walk-in or reach, where you’ll be able to find your things quickly and easily. Here’s how:

Design a Flexible Closet

A space-efficient built-in cupboard should be able to adjust to your unique needs. A professionally designed cupboard comes complete with holes on the side sections to give you the flexibility to adjust your shelves and rods as you please. This way, you can change your closet to suit your clothing style.

Use the Entire Space

If you have a corner in your closet you simply can’t use due to its design, you’ll know just why this is important. A professional design will work around every obstacle to ensure maximum storage space without any nooks and crannies you simply can’t use.

Let the Height Be Your Friend

Have you ever looked at the space at the top of your closet and think, I wish I could utilise that space? Effective built-in cupboard design is about using the entire volume of your wardrobe and involves some geometry. Wanting to use all the space shouldn’t be out of your reach.

The nice thing is you don’t have to be an expert in closet design, to get a professional closet design. All you need to do is call an expert like ProReno to manage the renovation for you. For affordable and space efficient built-in cupboards in Midrand, get in touch with the team at ProReno today!

How to Maximise Storage Space in Your Small Kitchen

Kitchen cupboards are a staple feature in every kitchen no matter the size. Not all homes are blessed with big, airy kitchens but the key to transforming your small kitchen is to know how to get the most possible storage out of each cupboard. If you’re looking for ways to increase storage space, consider adding these:

Pull-Out Drawers
Many kitchens come with deep cabinets, making it impossible to use the back of it. Other than the fact that they are difficult to access, it is extremely challenging to keep them organised. The solution: Pull-out cabinet drawers. Multiple pull-out drawers can be added to a single cabinet, making it super easy to reach whatever you have stored in there.

Corner Cabinets
Not utilising cupboard space in a kitchen is unlawful, even more so in a small kitchen. Corner cupboards can’t always be avoided and are unfortunately not the most practical for optimal use of space. An excellent solution would be to include a pull-out insert into your corner cabinet which makes it much easier to reach your items. You can choose from various designs to maximise your kitchen’s storage efficiency.

Drawer Organizers

Drawer organisers are a simple thing but can make the world of difference in the functionality of a small kitchen. Don’t waste valuable storage space by throwing utensils haphazardly into drawers when you can install drawer organisers to keep them all in place and add space in your drawers.

Under-Cabinet Rails
Have you ever thought about using the space directly under the top kitchen cabinets? When you add under-cabinet rails, you’ll have a perfect place to store pots and pans. You can also place hanging baskets to keep clutter off your countertops.

Choosing the Best Sink for Your New Kitchen

Kitchen renovations are fun, said no one ever! While the end-result might be exciting, the process can be daunting and challenging. You are faced with too many choices when it comes to the design elements as well as the hardware. But keep in mind, a kitchen renovation is a personal thing – you have to make decisions based on personal preference, functionality and budget. If you can tick all three boxes, you’ll love your kitchen forever.

One of the most vital decisions you’ll need to make is choosing a kitchen sink. Here are some things to consider before you do.

 Use the Right Material

 Stainless Steel

The most common choice for kitchen sinks is stainless steel. Not only does it suit nearly any kitchen style, but it is also robust and will last many, many years. Small scratches can quickly be buffed out and they are easy to clean.


Available in many colours and incredibly gorgeous, porcelain sinks are a must have for any traditional style kitchen. The only drawback is that they scuff and chip easily and need to be treated gently to look good for a long time.

 Other options include cast iron sinks and composite sinks which are available in various colours and are extremely durable. Composite sinks tend to be a little pricier.

 Match Your Sink with Your Kitchen Style

 There are various sink styles to choose from and your decision should be based on the style of your kitchen. A farmhouse sink is stunning and will make a bold statement in any type of kitchen. If you’re looking for affordable and durable, self-rimming sinks are a good option.

 A familiar option is the two-bowl sink we all grew up with. This option is perfect for those who don’t believe in dishwashers or prefer to hand wash. If a dishwasher is your friend, you might want to stick with one single sink basin for a beautifully streamlined look.

Another sink that’s gaining popularity is the undermount sink. It is easy to clean and create a seamless look. Prep sinks are an excellent addition to any kitchen. Typically installed on the kitchen island, they are perfect for food prep.
