Kitchen Storage Ideas for Small Spaces
Getting Creative in a Small Kitchen
If you live in a small home or apartment and are limited on kitchen storage, have you thought about looking to your vertical space for additional storage options?
This can be a creative way in your kitchen to utilize wall space to store pots and pans, utensils, accessories, etc. If this is something you are open to, here are a few ideas that might be a solution you can work with:
Using Steel Scaffolding Pipe in the Kitchen to Hang Pots and Pans
You can find these reclaimed steel scaffolding pipes in a salvage yard and possibly a local antique shop. If you have that industrial vibe going on in your kitchen décor, this can add a nice little pop of interest to a wall. You can use S-hooks to hang your pots and pans.
Hang Pots and Pans on Old and Rustic Picket Fencing
If you’ve got a little country charm going on in your home a rustic old piece of reclaimed picket fencing can be used in the kitchen to hang your pots and pans. Look for fun coat and hat hangers to attach to the fencing to hold pans and accessories.
If you can’t find a piece of old fencing, take a look at your local big box craft store as they have all sorts of great finds.
Wood or Metal Pegboard for Kitchen Storage Options
Pegboard can be found in sheets of wood or metal. You can find these in your local Home Depot type of stores and they can cut them down to size for you as well. If industrial is your style, the metal pegboard might be a good option for you. Wood pegboard can be painted to match the colors of your kitchens décor.
There are accessories you can find for pegboards like hooks and baskets that can be used to hold pots, pans, cooking utensils, herbs and more.
Use Shelving in the Kitchen for Storage
There are many shelving options available as well that you can use in the small space of your kitchen. There are free standing shelves or sturdy shelves for hanging on a wall. If you have kitchen appliances of a particular color, it can be a nice way to display them and matching baskets can hold pantry items.
If counter space is limited, shelving can hold the toaster, and you can create a nice little nook for holding wine bottles and glasses.
Grow Herb Garden on Towel Rail in the Kitchen
If you like to grow some of your own herbs, have you thought about using a towel bar? They come in many finishes and sizes. Hang these in an area of the kitchen that gets plenty of sunlight streaming through the window or hang it across the window itself.
You can use steel hooks to hold decorative metal baskets and buckets for your kitchen herb garden.
Just because you are limited to a small kitchen space does not mean you can’t overcome the storage issue. There are many creative ideas and these are just a few.
