Fresh and healthy drinking water is a must-have in any kitchen, but oftentimes it comes in the form of a bulky water purifier that takes up a whole lot of countertop space.

If you want all of the benefits of filtered drinking water while saving space in the kitchen, get your hands on the ZIP HydroTap Sparkling, available at Multico. Beyond dispensing filtered hot and cold water at the touch of a button, this nifty water dispenser also boasts an extra button for sparkling water, which comes in handy for cordials, sodas and other bubbly drinks during special occasions.

Of course, the filtration system brings plenty to the table as well, delivering pure-tasting water with reduced chlorine, sediments, limescale, lead and unpleasant odours thanks to the effective carbon and micron filters. The sleek and compact ZIP HydroTap water dispenser additionally comes with power-saving technology, such as programmable timers, and a childproof lock for extra safety.

Takara Standard Eye-Level Rack

Storage can be one of the trickiest aspects of planning your kitchen design. The top half of the kitchen should ideally be dedicated to storage since this won’t limit your countertop space, but being able to look (let alone reach) into those top cabinets can be a real pain.

That’s why a pull-down storage rack is one of our top kitchen fittings; the Eye-Level Rack from Takara Standard can be lowered for a clear overview of what’s inside, making cleaning much easier too.

Speaking of extra space in the kitchen, extending your countertop area is always a good idea, but you shouldn’t sacrifice other crucial parts of the kitchen for it. A sink cover can be a great in-between solution, offering you some extra surface area without compromising the size of the sink.

We particularly love the KompacPlay sink cover from KompacPlus, which comprises flexible panels to hide away dirty dishes inside the sink, the carefully carved openings allowing water to run through even when closed. Mix and match different colours to create a seamless or contrasting effect with the rest of your countertop.

BLANCO Waste Separation System

Every kitchen needs a rubbish bin, but not every rubbish bin is made equal! BLANCO’s waste separation system offers flexible bin divisions and customisation options all around the water hub, making waste separation much more intuitive.

Whether you have hinged doors, front pull-outs or drawers in your kitchen, BLANCO’s range of waste solutions is sure to have something for you. Of course, all waste bins vanish seamlessly into the base cabinets for a neat and minimalist look.
