Its easy to let corners become unused, empty space. To make sure your corners dont go
to waste when youre desperate for more storage space, look for small shelves, like this

products, you can stash jars or paper-towel rolls in a corner to get them out of your way. Decorating Small
5. Dont ignore your sink.

There are so many items that need to be near the sink sponges, rubber gloves, and Tips for Making a
Bar in a Small
hand soap, to name a few. But these can also go in your sink, leaving more of your Space
counter space open. Look for a caddy that fits in the sink to keep those little items in

6. Look up. Before Putting

Your House On The
If you dont have enough room to store things within arms reach, look up to the top of
the fridge and cabinets. Theres plenty of space up there for storing extra paper goods or
small appliances. Also consider installing some open shelves closer to the ceiling. You
might need a step-stool to get at the items you store up there, but as long as you make
sure to keep your most frequently used staples lower down, and reserve the high spots
for lesser needed items, its better than not being able to store them at all.

ladder, choose a folding one. That way you can stash it in a closet or lean it against a
wall when its not in use. There are also other conveniently folding products for the
kitchen, like this folding chefs cart.

9. Drawer alternatives.

If your small kitchen is lacking in drawers, you can keep flatware and napkins in holders
that look great on a counter or table. You dont need to buy these in a store, either
plenty of household stuff you might already have around, like cute tins or jars or wooden
boxes, can be re-made into useful little holders for necessities that usually hide in

10. Double up.

Look for storage products, like this turntable, that include two separate levels where the
typical version would only have one. Unless the items you are storing are very tall, you
can probably double your storage space with solutions like this. For instance, drawers
like this help you get the most use out of cabinets that would otherwise hold much less.
