Struggling to organize an itty-bitty kitchen? These pretty and practical storage solutions are a recipe for culinary success.
Light and Airy
To make a small kitchen feel open and airy, stick to a light color palette. If an all-white space feels too cold, add soft shades of blue and gray. Lighter colors are reflective and tend to recede to make a space feel larger.
A lazy Susan efficiently captures awkward corner space, but small items can easily fall and get lost in the void behind the shelves. Large canisters and clear acrylic dividers keep everything secure; labeling canisters helps you find what you need at a glance.
Make the most of cabinet space by using the inside of the door. Use removable adhesive strips to attach a dry-erase board for a grocery list and a clipboard to hold recipes. Keep spice jars organized and in sight with adjustable risers, and corral other small items in trays and cups.
Out of ReachNo more digging in the dark to find the bleach. Undersink cabinets are often a jumble of cleaning products, trash bins, and other practical household items. Take control of the mess using a pullout track for small trash and recycling bins and stackable wire baskets for other necessities.
- Front and Center
Upper corner cabinets offer a lot of storage space but are too deep to see everything. To solve this, store like items in wedge-shape acrylic bins with handles. Maximize a small void behind a bin by adding a riser with a small bin on top.
