It doesn’t matter where you live or how spacious your apartment is, the kitchen is never quite big enough for all of the tools and appliances you have on hand. By being creative and resourceful, you can fully utilize the space you have, and make your kitchen storage areas stretch further than you ever imagined. Here are eight tips for maximizing your apartment’s kitchen space.
Tip #1: Utilize your cabinet tops
If your cabinets don’t extend all the way to the ceiling, you can use the top of your cabinets to store items you don’t use often, like a cake stand, large stockpots, a pressure cooker or a roasting pan. If you have smaller items to store, consider purchasing decorative baskets for your cabinet tops. All of your extra kitchen items will be beautifully hidden in plain sight.
Tip #2: Use the inside of cabinet doors
The inside of your cabinet doors is a perfect place for an over-the-door organizer. Some store kitchen towels and potholders, and other types can hold utensils, spices, oils and cleaning supplies. Best of all, over-the-door organizers don’t require screws and nails for installation, which is ideal for a renter.
Tip #3: Use all the cabinet space available
Many cabinet shelves are adjustable, and if yours are too, you can add raised organizers to make the most of this space. This is ideal when you have multiple products of varying sizes on one shelf.
Tip #4: Make the most out of your under-the-sink cabinet
Most people use this area for cleaning products, but this cabinet is both wide and deep. It’s ideal for storing cookie sheets, muffin pans, pots and lids.
Tip #5: Use Command hooks
Available in different sizes, Command hooks are a great option for hanging mugs from the underside of your cabinets, storing lids and displaying decorative items. They can also be used to hang brooms, mops and light sweepers. Since Command hooks peel off, they don’t damage walls or cabinets.
Tip #6: Look outside your kitchen
If your kitchen is bursting at the seams, look around your apartment for other storage opportunities. Maybe you have an empty dresser drawer, extra space in a hutch or even some room under the bed. Utilizing other storage spaces in your apartment is a great way to keep items accessible but hidden from view.
Tip #7: Buy a kitchen cart
Kitchen carts are a versatile option for storing extra kitchen supplies and appliances in a convenient and decorative way. Some even come with wheels for easy relocation should you need the extra floor space.
