You cannot afford to waste a single inch when you’ve limited cooking space. This means that to store your sponges you might have to use the inside of your cabinet door or hang spices on an open wall. Here are a few storage tricks for a tiny kitchen.
Reorganize Your Walls
Using hooks turn previously wasted wall space into a genius pot and pans wall. The less-appealing and chunky items will be easier to grab, too.
Nestle Wine Glasses
Add a riser, which is easily available on e-commerce sites, for plates and bowls, and make more space in your cabinet for wine glasses.
Use Cabinets Strategically
You don’t use baking dishes on a daily basis so why not just store them out of reach? Using risers it is easy to create ample room for dishes on any number of shelves.
Don’t Overpack Cabinets
Create categories to keep tabs on the food you already have. Make separate sections for sweets, snacks and breakfast foods. You can leave one rack empty for foreseeable excess.
File Your Platters
For heavy serving platters, trays and cutting boards filing organizer is ideal because it won’t wiggle as you pull items in and out as it screws into the bottom of the cabinet.
Use Your Doors
One of the most under-utilized spaces in most kitchen is the inside of the cabinet doors. To add extra storage use caddies and hooks. You can use the space to store your grocery bags.
Use Clear containers
By storing items in clear containers you can see when you’re running low and add them to your shopping list.
Nestle Your Utensils

Think About Weight
As a rule, it’s always better to place heavy items like iron skillets and ovens in the lowest cabinet possible. It’s safer to pull them out that way and you also don’t have to worry about the shelf they’re sitting on collapsing under their weight.
Add extra shelves on a wasted wall and use it for storing spices, or any dinnertime favorites.
Look Above Your Range
Use your stovetop to store your pots and cooking utensils so that everything you need will always be at hand.
Choose a Hollow Island
Leave the back of the island open and use it to store everything you want like holiday accessories and cookbooks.
Build a Better Bench
Instead of dining chairs opt for a breakfast nook bench as it takes up less space, and works double-duty with storage under the seats.
For organizing canned goods the skinny space between your fridge and the wall is prime real estate.
Display What You Can
Make a wall rack for your platters. It doubles as wall art and creates extra storage.
