10 Tips for Maximizing Storage in Small Kitchens

Choosing The Right Cabinet Hardware

Are you struggling to find space in your tiny kitchen? Don’t fret! We’ve got you covered with 10 savvy tips to help you maximise storage in small kitchens. With a little creativity and help from Master Cabinets, your kitchen will be more organised and functional in no time.

1. Make use of vertical space

When floor space is limited, don’t forget to look up! Use the full height of your walls with tall kitchen cabinets and open shelves for storing cookware, dishes, and other kitchen essentials.

2. Choose space-saving appliances

Opt for compact appliances that won’t take up too much room. Consider smaller, energy-efficient options like a single-bowl sink, slimline dishwasher, or a combination microwave and convection oven.

3. Opt for multi-functional furniture

Save space with multi-functional furniture like a fold-out table that can be used as a dining area or prep space, and barstools that double as storage.

4. Incorporate clever storage solutions

Incorporate smart storage solutions like pull-out pantries, custom cabinets, and stone benchtops with integrated storage.

5. Use the inside of cabinet doors

Maximise storage by using the inside of cabinet doors to store small items like cutting boards, pot lids, and spice racks.

6. Utilise the corners

Don’t let corners go to waste. Use corner cabinets or shelves to make the most of these often-overlooked areas.

7. Install a pegboard

A pegboard on the wall can be a versatile storage solution for hanging pots, pans, and utensils, keeping them within easy reach and saving valuable cupboard space.

8. Add a pot rack

Save cabinet space by hanging pots and pans from a ceiling-mounted pot rack. Not only will this free up storage, but it’ll also add a touch of style to your kitchen.

9. Use drawer organisers

Keep your drawers tidy with organisers for cutlery, utensils, and other kitchen tools. This will make it easier to find what you need and prevent clutter.

10. Think outside the box

Don’t be afraid to get creative with storage solutions. Consider installing a magnetic strip for knives, using tension rods to create dividers in cabinets, or adding a pull-out cutting board beneath your benchtop.
