I’ve been meaning to do a post on the Blum Orgaline Accessories for a long time now. As I finally got together all the images for them to use on the Ipad with quotes, I thought it was time to do this post to go along with it. So below is the gallery full of Orgaline Accessories.
Kitchens are the one room in a house that have an incredible amount of things to store and also generally get the most use out of all the rooms. Whilst not everyone wants to spend alot of money getting a new kitchen or upgrading it, it is worth looking at adding in better storage options to make your new kitchen more user friendly. Obviously adding these options in will make the kitchen more expensive, but you will appreciate them alot more than having to reach into the back of a cupboard with doors. Adding more drawers into a kitchen allows for better use of space and ease of accessing everything in the cupboard. There are other ways to make cupboards better to use. Especially cupboards like pantries, corner units and the seldom used blind corner. By clicking the thumbnails below you can find more information on ways to make these
Blum have a system called Orgaline that allows for better storage of items in your kitchen. The Orgaline system can be used for storing food, cutlery, crockery, pots, liquids and pretty much anything else you keep in your kitchen. It works in conjunction with the Blum Tandembox Drawer system, can be rearranged to suit your requirements and can also be washed in the dishwasher, thus making it a very versatile option to include in your kitchen plans. Below I have included pictures of the different ways to utilize Orgaline, click the thumbnails to find out more about each of the options.
When choosing cutlery trays, it generally comes down to price. Whilst most cabinet makers, myself included, will include a general plastic cutlery tray, there is also the option of Orgaline cutlery trays. Orgaline trays, are component trays. Each section is removable and dishwasher safe, giving you the ability to easily clean and rearrange the components to suit how you would like them positioned. Whilst a plastic cutlery tray is somewhere around the $20 mark, Orgaline can cost as little as $100 and more than $250 depending on what you want to achieve and the size of the drawer it needs to fit into. You can compare the two different options below.
Having your doors close gently is something everyone should use on their kitchen and other cabinets. It alleviates the “bang” noise heard when doors close, even when they have door bump ons on them. Blumotion for doors is the perfect tool for achieving this. Its a very simple design that just clips directly onto their hinges. When you close the door, at around about 15 degrees from being close, the Blumotion starts to work by gently slowing the door down until it reaches the cabinet edge. It is a cheap way to achieve a gentle closing door and simple enough to do at any time, as long as you have Blum hinges. It’s also a product I recommend to all my customers and have as an option on quotes just incase they are indecisive on whether they would like it or not.

In our ever changing environment, kitchens have moved beyond the need of having handles to open the doors and drawers. Blum have released some great products for achieving this look. Firstly there is “tip-on”, which is used for having touch release doors. This is easily installed by drilling a 10mm hole into the gable, rail or bottom of a cabinet and then attaching the metal plate to the back of the door to allow the magnet to hold it closed. Tip-on only requires a soft touch to open the door and can be used on melamine, wood, metal and glass doors. As long as unsprung hinges are used on the doors, the door will open to a comfortable point to be able to open it the rest of the way. Ideally I use Tip-on on servery doors as a foot release door, it has become the perfect accessory for dealing
