Need more storage space in your kitchen for your growing collection of cookware, tableware, and supplies?
What if we told you, you don’t even have to do a renovation or add a new table or cupboard.
Here are a few simple ideas:
Cabinet dividers come in many different functions. Some enable you to store baking sheets, cutting boards, and platters in an upright position, effectively doubling the storage capacity of that area. Others allow you to stack plates, bowls, and other tableware. You might also find it useful to tier your spices for easy visibility and access.
Here are a few low budget pantry dividers that we love!
Removable wine rack
A removable wine rack can be nicely concealed away in a cupboard or out on display as an added interior decor piece. The best part is, they’re completely customizable to your space and price range!
Here are a few of our favourites from least to most expensive!
- 12-Bottle Wine Rack Cube Storage
- Del Hutson Designs Rustic Luxe Wine Set, 24″
- Wall-Mounted Wooden Wine Rack
- Etsy Live Edge Oak Wood 6 Bottle Wine Rack
This is similar to a towel rack, except you use S-shaped hooks – which you can find at any home improvement store – to hang pots, pans, and other items. Restaurant kitchens often use these but don’t let that deter you! These are also highly customizable so they’ll fit right into any kitchen!
Here’s a quick list of the ones we use!
- SUNNERSTA – low assembly kitchen rod stand from IKEA
- HULTARP and HULTARP Hooks from IKEA
- KUNGSFORS Stainless Steal Wine Rack from IKEA with KUNGSFORS Wide Containers & Narrow Containers
A shelf installed high up the wall – near the ceiling – that wraps around the kitchen and dining area, can easily double your storage space. Floating shelves make great storage solutions.
