For most of us, the kitchen is a pretty important hub of our homes. Whether we use it as a central hang out space or solely for cooking, we can end up spending a lot of time there. It’s why mastering a few kitchen storage hacks plays a huge role in maximizing efficiency in our lives. And any thing that creates convenience in our lives kind of helps us out by definition.
Storage hacks not only help to keep things organized, but if you’re an apartment-dweller like me, they can also help you maximize a potentially cramped space, which is always a huge bonus. I personally have a very low tolerance for clutter and can be driven kind of insane by a disorderly work space, so I’m always on the lookout for ways to enhance my kitchen set up.
I also find that when I enjoy my kitchen space and feel like it’s actually functional I’m just way more inclined to actually cook at home, which saves me a ton of money in the long run.
If this is sounding familiar and you’re desperate for some solid kitchen hacks, here are 11 storage solutions that should majorly help.
1. Mount A Spice Rack On A Cabinet Door
A piece for Life Hack on kitchen storage suggested installing a spice rack onto the inside of a cabinet door so that it doesn’t take up any counter space. And if you don’t have any cabinets that are big enough, consider mounting it to a wall. It can actually look super cute!
2. Get An Over-The-Sink Cutting Board
Life Hack also recommended getting a wooden board that fits over your sink that can serve as more counter space when you need it. This is awesome for small kitchens!
