When in doubt, use vertical space. And when you lack counter space, utilize the fridge! This magnetic refrigerator kitchen rack can store paper towels, parchment paper, bottles of oil and vinegar, and various food containers. Use this kitchen rack to store your most used items for easy access.
Kitchen Utility Cart
If you have any floor space to spare, a kitchen utility rack is a good idea to have. You can use it as an extension of your pantry, or an extra counter space for food prep. This HOMCOM rolling kitchen island has cupboards, produce baskets, and a wine rack! Talk about versatility! If you need something smaller though, Ikea’s utility cart is narrow enough to fit in the odd corners of your kitchen.
Floating shelves, hooks, and everything in between
Seriously, vertical space is the ultimate answer to space-saving. Nowadays when most apartment units appear to be allergic to storage and cupboards, it’s better to just make your own. This metal wall shelf by Cascade Iron Co. is so sleek in design that it will look great on a minimalist’s home. This Holman floating shelf is both a wine rack and a glass shelf in itself– perfect for your home bar! Vertical space also includes doors. A kitchen over the cabinet door organizer like this one is great to store the rest of your pantry items.
Now, if you still lack wall space, then hooks will be your next best bet. This Better Houseware Undershelf Mug and Cup Hooks lets you hang your mugs inside cupboards without losing any space. If you need more space than that then this Simple Houseware undershelf basket will do you good.
