Surely you’ve thought of ways on how you can maximize the very limited space you have in your kitchen. It can be frustrating to have very limited space in arguably the most favorite part of the house, however, we have here a few more tricks that can work in your space. Wouldn’t hurt to try, yeah?
Make home cooking a lot easier, smoother, and fun for you. Ain’t it fun to have a more organized station? Take a look at these five amazing small kitchen storage hacks to spruce up your space.
Remove or replace
If you have too much going on in your kitchen, remove all the unnecessary elements. If you have just enough elements in the area but lacking form and function, replace. Removing and replacing certain elements to maximize and make up more space is one of the easiest ways to improve your space.
It could be turning your kitchen cabinets to open shelving, replacing a small side table with a 3-tier kitchen rack, or removing a cabinet altogether to make way for extra space you can use for something else later.
Make use of command hooks and tension rods
Doesn’t it irritate you when you when your cleaning products and tools are all over the place due to lack of permanent storage space? This also goes for your other kitchen storage woes.
No matter how many times you reorganize it, buy new storage space for it, and the works, it just wouldn’t sit neatly. Well, we have this life-changing hack that can help you reorganizing much better: use of tension rods and command hooks.
For example, mount your command hooks and/or tension rods inside the door of your kitchen cabinet for that sweet extra space. You can use this to hang your cleaning spray under the bathroom sink or secure your measuring cups on a storage container.
Metal towel bars as lid racks
Hooray for tower bars! You can install them on the side of the kitchen counter where it can serve as your own lid rack. No more accumulated space for pots and lids.
Divide spaces in your drawers
Admit it, we all have that throw-everything-in drawer in the kitchen. This contains anything and everything from a box cutter to measuring cups. If you’re confusing this with your regular kitchen drawers—where your utensils are—and these, too, are disorganized, then this is no good.
It’s a nightmare. And it won’t tidy up by itself. What you can do is put divider boards in the drawers or tiny baskets/organizing trays for easier storage and organization.
Mount a pegboard and start hanging
Whether you live in a rental or in your own home dealing with a small kitchen space, you can always squeeze in a great amount of extra space with pegboards. You can hang your pans, lids, ladles, and the likes strategically. You can also mount tiny baskets where you can put utensils in or spices.
The kitchen is where the best dishes are prepared and candid conversations are shared, so make it the most comfortable space in the house.
