Storage Tips for Smaller Kitchens

Storage in a small kitchen is essential for several reasons. Not only is it a nuisance when you need to look for ingredients and utensils, but it can also be challenging to keep your countertops and floor space free. Fortunately, a few clever storage solutions can help you make the most of your limited space. You can turn your small kitchen into a functional and attractive area with some creativity.

Here are some helpful suggestions to tidy up your small kitchen.

Kitchen Cabinets

 If you don’t have enough cabinet space, consider installing a recessed ceiling above the kitchen cabinets. A suspended ceiling will allow you to use that space for cabinets. You can also consider installing a built-in cupboard for a broader look. If you have an open plan kitchen, you can stack an old crate on top of each other.


 Adding shelving to your kitchen will help you organize the contents better. Shelving is handy if your kitchen is small and you’re working on a pantry-type remodel. You can find a shelving unit designed for that purpose and try to find one that complements the rest of your decor.

Island Cabinets

 You can also consider installing an island if you have the space for one and have customized cabinets underneath it. Island cabinets can be used for two purposes: they can double as work surfaces and store pots and pans. These cabinets also have lots of storage space. Finding the right one is the trick. There are so many options available that it can be challenging to choose the right one. Make sure that you choose cabinets that complement the style of your kitchen.
