4 Tips for Adding Storage to a Small Kitchen

The kitchen truly is the heart of your home. It’s where you gather to talk, to cook and to be together. But when you have a small kitchen, it’s tough to mingle. If you’re not ready for a full-blown remodel, use these quick-fix tips to squeeze more storage space out of your small kitchen and clear up room.

1. Think Vertically

There’s a whole world of unused space right above your head. A simple shelf on the wall above your doorway, range, or wherever else there’s room is perfect for displaying (and storing) plates. Christina’s Adventures has a simple tutorial on making it happen.

2. Make (or Find) a Storage Island

A floating island adds more storage space and more counter space to your kitchen, all while looking pretty. You can make one using this tutorial from Mom4Real or find similar products at many furniture stores.

3. Embrace Baskets and Bins

Baskets and Bins make cute and functional storage solutions for small kitchens. To make even more room, place baskets on top of your cabinets like Elsie at a Beautiful Mess. They can also easily be stored inside cabinets to hold things like spices and utensils.

4. Repurpose File Folders

File folders can do more than just hold magazines! Repurpose them into storage spaces to hold cleaning products, spices, fruit and more. BuzzFeed Goodfull has a full pantheon of file folder hacks for your kitchen.
