Maximize Your Small Kitchen: Creative Storage Solutions for a Better Kitchen Experience

Have you been struggling with a small kitchen that lacks storage space? Fret not! In this post we will explore how you can transform your small kitchen into a highly functional space.  Get ready to discover 10 clever ways to maximize storage space and get small appliances off your countertops.

#1 Base Corner Cabinet Solution: While there are many other corner cabinet storage options, we feel that the good old Lazy Susan (not sure of why Susan) is the best option.  It maximizes capacity and the higher quality ones operate very well.  We suggest you pick one that’s made with wood shelves that support each rotating shelf.

#2 Double Trash Bin Cabinet: These cabinets are phenomenal for a small kitchen.  It keeps the trash in a secure spot (away from your pets or children) and the second bin can be used for recyclables, so they stay off your countertops.

#3 Drawers: One can never have too many drawers in a kitchen! It’s the best storage by far because you can pull the contents to you to see what you need.  Good quality drawers can hold up to 50 lbs. of content. They also keep the kitchen organized.

#4 Pullout Drawers: This solution comes in handy for storing small appliances or taller pots and pans that require a taller space as the shelves can be adjusted to fit your needs.

#5 Pullout Pantries: This base cabinet storage is versatile as it can be used for spices near the stove and to store can goods. The adjustable shelves can be adjusted to fit your needs.

#6 Tray Dividers: This storage solution is perfect to keep cookie sheets and baking dishes organized.

#7 Mixer Shelf: This solution is perfect for people who love to bake and don’t want to be hauling the mixer from another room as the mixers are heavy.  Having a cabinet like this can help you store the mixer and the parts all in one place.

#8 Spice Drawer Insert: Wouldn’t you love to have all the spices with the label facing up and able to read them? We would! This insert helps to maximize the storage and ease of use.

#9 Drawer Inserts: These inexpensive storage options keep your drawers neat and organized.  Highly recommend them!

#10 A Microwave Drawer: Although this option isn’t inside the cabinet per say, it is a fantastic option for the cook who likes to use a microwave and doesn’t want it over the stove or on the countertop.  A microwave drawer requires planning and it’s best to incorporate it in the new design from the start.
