Who doesn't have a wasted nook in between cabinets? I love this idea for hanging kitchen utensils.
The best use of my counter space is stacking vertical. I love my stackable cookie cooling racks. They're great to set hot pans on, too.
Fit twice the amount of pans in one small space. Perfect.
I first saw this on Chef Giada De Laurentiis' kitchen counter, and I have coveted it ever since. It's a little pricey, but it would tuck perfectly into a counter's corner.
It seems silly, but a little under-cabinet lighting goes a long way in a small kitchen. I love mine!
A slim trashcan can slip neatly alongside a counter or refrigerator. This one even lets you separate trash and recycling — one can, two jobs.
I've had a shelf like this for 10 years. It's followed me from my first small kitchen to my current small kitchen. It's perfect for a few favorite cookbooks, as well as storing baking dishes and mixing bowls.
With limited drawer space and the need to have your pot holders within arm's reach, this is the perfect inexpensive and simple solution.
Annoyed by all the clutter under your sink? Not enough room? Yes. This is a fab solution. Maximize the height to maximize the space.
Make any small space feel bigger with a mirror. It can really brighten things up in the kitchen, ideally when near a window to help reflect the light.
My future plans include replacing the living room/dining room carpet that flows into the kitchen with hardwood floors — a trick for making a small kitchen appear bigger!
Not everyone's budget has room for this, but if yours does, it could be a good investment. As Alton Brown would say, no one-trick ponies! This does the work of four different ovens, including a microwave and a convection oven. And it's built in, saving counter space. Beautiful.
It gets hot in a small kitchen, so being able to keep the air moving is key. I like to crank the ceiling fan and open a window in the spring or summer if the oven is going strong.
Keep the spices and oils corralled so that you have free space on your shelves for bigger things. A little order goes a long way.
This drying rack is great for a sink without a window above it, but you can also buy Grundtal hooks to hang other things from the rail: ladles, oven mitts, tongs — the options are endless. Thank you, Ikea.
