Get Maximum Storage From the Kitchen You Have
If you have more kitchen
items than you have space, you need to make the most of what you have. Finding adequate storage can be a challenge, no matter how much you pare down your stash of gadgets. Uncovering hidden and wasted space can help you find a home for all your stuff.
One of the first paces to look for “hidden” space in the kitchen
is the walls. What can you hang from a wall rack? Would shelves offer extra storage space? Walls are the most often wasted space; figuring out ways to use them is well worth your time and effort.
Don’t forget the ceiling either. Hanging pot racks can help clear out a lot of cabinet space while keeping your most often used pots and pans within easy reach of the stovetop.
Another often-wasted space is next to the refrigerator. A rolling pantry slides in between the fridge and the cabinet or the fridge and the wall and offers several shelves on which to store common pantry items like cereals and canned goods, or often-used items like mixing bowls and cookie sheets. The pantry rolls on wheels and can be easily pulled out to access items and pushed back to hide them away.
Over-the-door caddies allow you to create space behind cabinet doors and keep things like sponges and dishtowels out of sight when not in use. There are also door-mounted garbage bag systems that help save floor space.
