The kitchen is the center of the home. But what if you don’t have a large kitchen and you’re always scrambling for space? If you have a small kitchen, below are six tips that you can use to increase the storage in your kitchen quickly and easily.
Put a Pegboard Up
There’s a lot of storage potential in your walls. Rather than hanging shelves that can limit what they’re able to hold, pegboards are a great alternative. This gives you extremely flexible space for storage that you can adjust as your needs change.
Use Your Cabinet Tops
Chances are that you have spots in your cabinets that are way out of reach and possibly unused. These are the perfect spot to put items you only use occasionally. These are the ideal spots for your serving platters you only use on holidays or your Christmas themed dishes. If you don’t use it regularly, put it on the top shelf.
Use Your Cabinet Sides
If you have one or two cabinets that aren’t against your wall, you can use that space for storage. Add a shelf, hang a rail for a pot, and more.
Consider Using Your Cabinets’ Bottoms
Looking for more space? Look no further than under your cabinets. These are a great spot to hang your small tools and mugs on hooks. You also use magnet strips and make a handy spice rack.
Use Doors’ Interior
All of your doors, whether they are cabinet, pantry or even a door to the basement, have storage space you can use. Add shelving, make a handy spot for canned goods and more. Use a couple of hooks on the interior of a door and you have a handy spot for a trash bag.
Put Racks in Cabinets
If you put a sturdy rack on one of your shelves so that it hangs down, you can store additional items on in your cabinets. You’ll be able to store double the number of dishes in the same amount of space.
These are all tips that you can use to increase your kitchen’s space with your existing cabinets and without spending a lot of money.
