Ideas For Small Kitchen Storage

A perpetual curse of the small apartment is the small kitchen, and a perpetual curse of the small kitchen is lack of storage. Sure, only having 18 inches of counter space is a real bear, but before you get there, where are you even going to put anything? If your kitchen suffers from lack of storage, try one of these tips to help you fit everything in.

Copper pots hanging directly on the wall, for a statement wall that’s as stylish as it is practical.

One solution for a small kitchen is a pot rail. Mount one under the cabinets and use it to hang kitchen tools, small shelves for spices, and even holders for utensils that don’t have a home in a drawer.

This kitchen demonstrates perfectly how rolling wire shelving can help to supplement storage space in a kitchen that happens to be lacking.

Hanging a pegboard on the wall is a great way to create storage for utensils, and even pots and pans. (Having a spot to hang utensils will be especially welcome if your kitchen is short on drawers, which most small kitchens are.)

It’s a small detail and one that might be easy to miss, but using magnetic spice containers on the edge of a metal shelf , is a great way to keep spices easily accessible but off the counter. (You can also hang magnetic spice containers on the side of the fridge, on on the oven as shown above.)

Baskets make the most of that awkward space above the cabinets, and an extra shelf, mounted a few inches below the upper cabinets, provides a place for frequently-used ingredients. Even the space on top of the fridge can be utilized with stylish baskets as above.
