In a perfect world, we would all have a kitchen, big enough to hold all our crockery, pots, pans, and other kitchen essentials and then some. Unfortunately, our world is far from perfect, and kitchens can’t store all that we would like for them to! But what we can do instead, is to think vertical! From a pull-out pantry to pegboard organizers, here are 7 smart vertical storage ideas for small kitchens, that you’d want to try ASAP.
From a pull-out pantry to pegboard organizers, here are 7 smart vertical storage ideas for small kitchens, that you’d want to try ASAP.
1. A Pull-Out Pantry Organizer
No more trying to squeeze in everything into cabinet shelves. How about using that odd vertical space and building a pull-out pantry cart? Brilliant, isn’t it?
2. A Pegboard Organizer
Pegboards are amazing when you find yourself running out of shelf-space. Wall mount a pegboard and use it to hang your pots, pans and basically anything that can be hung!
3. Floating Shelves
Floating shelves are a great storage option, as they are as good to look at as they are for storage. Install floating shelves over your countertops to create an illusion of space and keep things organized.
4. Over-The-Door Shelves
Why let all the space above the kitchen door stay empty and wasted? Build shelves and put it to good use by stowing away your sparsely used items there.
5. Rods and Hooks
Install rods and hooks in the kitchen to keep essentials within easy reach and off countertops!
6. Cabinets Above Windows
Build cabinets around the windows to make extra space in the kitchen! Don’t worry about the height; keep a ladder handy to reach the hard-to-reach shelves.
7. A Slide-Out Chopping Board
Thinking smart is all you need when life hands you a small kitchen. A slide-out chopping board like this one can be a great space saver. Bet you never thought of one!
