Tips from The Home Chaperone to create a practical kitchen.

Introducing our awesome guest bloggers, Jess and Kris from The Home Chaperone. This dynamic-duo have just finished their most recent renovation project - their family home! And no surprise's here... we LOVE the kitchen!

Over to you Jess...

Hey there, fellow home enthusiasts! If you're following our journey at The Home Chaperone, you know we're all about making homes better and more efficient. Today, we're diving into the heart of the house, the kitchen, and talking about the unsung heroes that make daily life a breeze. Yes, we're talking about bins, sinks, and drawer inserts – the true workhorses of your kitchen.


We've spent quite some time on a mission to find the ideal bin, and let's be real, dealing with those less-than-great, messy, and flimsy bins can be a real hassle. It's become a bit of an obsession, but trust us, it's all worth it. We recently explored the Häfele showroom in Osborne Park, and it felt like a bin enthusiast's paradise (you know you're an adult when this happens, right?) plus it had loads of other awesome products we wanted to incorporate in our design. And… Häfele have 8 showrooms across Australia! 

First up, let's talk about your sink. Opt for an undermount sink with handy accessories like a colander and draining board – the perfect recipe for concealing those dirty dishes when you're not in the cleaning mood. Our choice? The Häfele Squareline 1 & 3/4 bowl sink in the beautiful linen finish. It's not just practical; the drain guard snags all the food scraps, and it's a stunner too.

Now, let's elevate your kitchen game with convenience. When it comes to washing veggies and cleaning up, a sink with a pull-out veggie sprayer mixer tap is a game-changer. Just like the Häfele gooseneck beauty we found.

But that's not all; we've got kitchen organisation goals in mind. Design your dedicated food prep station for ultimate convenience. One drawer for knives, chopping boards, and wraps, while the other holds your bin and recycling, making cleanup a breeze. Our choice? The super practical Häfele Hailo Euro Cargo ST60 paired with the luxurious Häfele Fineline LiniQ drawer inserts, knife block, and roll wrap holders in sleek black ash.

Now, let's simplify your kitchen cleanup routine. Upgrade to a pull-out bin with a built-in lid – no more drawer pulling, lid lifting, and extra steps. It's all about easy disposal. And for those bin liners, consider a hidden drawer right above the bin. Meet our choice, the efficient Hailo Euro Cargo ST60 - Häfele’s #1 family sized bin!

After years of creating dream kitchens with Häfele products for clients, it's a delight to have all the best storage solutions right in our own space. It's like a dream come true for anyone who loves a well-organised and efficient kitchen.

In a nutshell, efficiency at its best is what we're all about, and Häfele products are helping us achieve that effortlessly. So, whether you're a homeowner looking to spruce up your kitchen or a fellow enthusiast like us, consider the power of these kitchen wonders to make your life a whole lot easier. Cheers to a more efficient and beautiful home! 🏡🍽️
