While it’s fun to daydream about a giant kitchen with a huge island and a walk-in pantry, that is not always reality. Sometimes, you have to make the most of the space you have. If your kitchen is on the smaller side and you need some organization inspiration, we have some tips:
Firstly, take advantage of your wall space. Using available blank walls will help get items off your countertop or out of your cabinets. Floating shelves are a great way to incorporate décor and hanging racks can hold your spices.
If possible, maximize the extra space above your cabinets. If your cabinets don’t go all the way up to your ceiling, you can either utilize the space directly above the cabinets or even add additional shelving. This can be a fun way to display serving pieces, show off cookbooks, or incorporate canisters to hide clutter.
Utilize the inside of cabinet doors. There are many options for storage space on the inside of your cabinet doors. You can use hanging racks, mount storage racks, Velcro strips, etc. Figure out what you’d like to hang on the cabinet doors and then you can determine which storage option works for you.
Use tension rods to make space more organized. You can use tension rods to store baking sheets or other flat and wide objects upright in your cupboards. This is a great way to free up some space for other items.
Finally, incorporate interior cabinet organizers. This is probably the most basic, common advice – but it works! If your junk drawer is filled to the brim, take a few drawer dividers and separate things out. You’ll be surprised at how easy it will be to keep everything in its place from now on.
