Many of us suffer from small kitchens because it seems impossible to fit everything we need here. But the mission is possible! There are some cool ideas for storage in the kitchen that can fit in the smallest of spaces and create extra space for you.
Your usual cabinets offer plenty of options for additional storage space. First, take a look in your closets: if the shelves are tall enough, you can add extra wire shelves and store dishes and cups. Use the bottom of the cabinets to secure mason jars with dry food or to make shallow drawers for storing frying pans. Another idea is to add some rails and hanging wire baskets to put whatever you want inside. Make super narrow pull-out drawers and cabinets for storing food and dishes. Put retractable cutting boards in your cabinets to save space. You can also put the less-used items on your closets.
Ideas hanging and wall-mounted
Use walls to save space! Put up wall-mounted shelves for all kinds of things you have: cookbooks, dishes, pans, groceries, and so on. Attach magnetic strips for knives to the walls and save space on the countertop. To create more space, hang breadboard and rails and attach hooks and rails to them. This way you can accommodate even more material. Wall storage might also be a good idea.
Put shelves on your countertops and you get double the space.
