So, you’ve finally finished your kitchen remodel but somehow you still can’t seem to get everything organized in your small kitchen space. With more people opting for apartment living, small kitchens are becoming more common. But let’s be honest – they can be frustrating to work in. It’s harder to use and store your favorite small appliances, and you can’t seem to find the space to put away the things that would usually be stored on your countertop. Luckily, so many unique and clever options now exist to help keep even the tiniest of kitchens organized. So stop pulling your hair out, your small kitchen will be organized in no time!
Double Magnetic Knife Holders
In small kitchens, there’s simply no space for the bulky knife blocks that are standard in larger kitchens. But if you’re an avid cook, the idea of storing all of your knives away in a drawer just doesn’t cut it. Double magnetic knife holders are a great solution to this problem. Utilizing just a little over a foot of space on your wall, fridge, or even the side of a cabinet, you can keep your knives organized without having them completely out of reach. The best part is – they’re extremely affordable! You can find tons of options online, ranging in price from $15 to $50.
If your kitchen is anything like mine, you probably have pots and pans stacked perilously on top of, inside of, and next to each other in one of your base rta kitchen cabinets. It’s almost impossible to reach the pot or pan that you need at any given time, and you’re always struggling to take one out. With designs that can be attached to either the wall or the ceiling, pot racks are a great solution for this problem. For one, you won’t have to worry about the inevitable scratching that comes with dragging pots and pans out of tight areas. You also have much easier access to your cookware, just grab and go. It also frees up cabinet space for that food processor that you just can’t do without.
Undersink Pull-out Accessories
When your kitchen is small, you have to find use for every nook and cranny. Ideally, it would be great to leave the space under your sink free of clutter. For most people, however, that area is prime real estate that just can’t be ignored. Luckily, you can utilize this space in an organized fashion with a variety of undersink pull-out accessories from Rev-A-Shelf. From baskets to cleaning caddies to towel holders, there are a number of options for utilizing this space.
Cabinet Door Storage Racks & Holders
Baking trays and cutting boards are such a headache to store when your kitchen isn’t large enough. But one great solution to this is a storage rack that attaches to the inside of your base cabinet door that will hold your trays upright. There are also a number of other cool contraptions that are designed to utilize your cabinet door space. From holding cleaning supplies to towels to extra garbage bags, cabinet door accessories are another way to keep everything in its place.
Your small kitchen space does not have to be a cluttered mess. With a little bit of ingenuity, you can keep your small kitchen clean and organized.
