Even if you have small kitchen or limited cabinetry, there are plenty of easy, stylish ways to expand your storage areas.
From floating shelves to an organizer starter kit, there are the tools to give you more space.
When you’re limited on space, you need to maximize every square inch. A low cabinet organizer starter kit allows you to store lids of pots and pans, cutting boards, and serving trays vertically. The hanging racks utilize door space and mobile shelves create the ability to stack casserole dishes vertically (even when they don’t nestle together).
For an easy, customizable addition – go with floating shelves in the kitchen. These shelves come in a variety of colors and sizes, making them perfect for tight spaces. Depending on the style you choose, they can hold anything from spices and an herb garden to glassware and cookbooks.
Clear food containers
You lose a lot of cabinetry real estate with oversized food boxes. Instead of cramming big cereal boxes into your small cabinets, transfer your snacks to clear food containers. The food stays fresher longer, you save space, and the containers allow you to put your food on display.
Don’t toss out your stemmed wine glasses or oversized kitchen utensils because they don’t fit in your drawers or cabinets. Add an under-the-cabinet rack to save on space and keep the inside of your glasses dust-free! Wine glass racks are usually inexpensive, and when added to your kitchen, show off your glasses like artwork. Hooked racks work well for pots, pans, and utensils.
If your kitchen is too small to have a table, opt for a rolling kitchen cart that can serve as a dining, meal prep, and storage space. When you’re not using it, it’s small enough to roll against a wall and be out of the way until you need it again.
Utilizing plastic containers that can be stored inside themselves is a great way to save space. Lock & Lock products can be nested inside one another, and the design allows you to stack them neatly in the fridge. Added bonus: many of these style containers can be used for items other than food. Save space in your home office or the kid’s playroom!
Double dish shelves
Get more use out of your vertical cabinet space with a double dish shelf. Create more space for your cups, bowls and plates with shelving that nestles into the corner of your cabinet.
Having a small kitchen doesn’t mean you’re stuck with dinner plates for two. By incorporating shelving options outside and within your cabinets, you’ll expand the space for your tasteful wine glasses, unique spice collection and herb garden.
