The Hiding-in-Plain-Sight Storage Space You're Not Using - Small-Space Kitchens

The Hiding-in-Plain-Sight Storage Space You're Not Using - Small-Space Kitchens
From The Kitchn - October 12, 2017

When you have got a small kitchen, let no surface go unused! Turns out, there's one spot a lot of us do not even think of for storage: the sides of our cabinets! With clever installation of bars, hooks, racks, nails, and more, you can turn that hiding-in-plain-sight spot into a real space-save.

Here are nine ways to use the sides of your cabinets.

1. Store your utensils.

In Rachel Yacaparo and Brian Willard's Chicago home, they used hooks hung from a towel rack to line up their utensils and keep them within reach.

2. Hang pots and pans.

Similarly, Janette, the blogger behind The 2 Seasons, used a towel rack to hang her copper pot collection (the only downfall is that you have to keep the bottoms really, really clean!).

3. Corral dish towels and paper goods.

These country-style write baskets, featured on Golden Boys & Me, keep dish towels, lunch bags, and paper plates nearby and at the ready.

4. Stash spices.

Steph of Saltbush Avenue realized that all she needed was a narrow picture ledge (from IKEA, of course) in order to create just enough space for a row of spices right by her stovetop.

5. Stash wine.

6. Hold food magazines.

7. Grow herbs.

8. Store your cutting boards.

9. Hang shelves.
