You can never have enough storage space in the kitchen, and this small kitchen desperately needed more. We found it in some unexpected places.
Create Double-Duty Storage
By replacing old dining chairs with a custom, built-in bench, the couple gained a great breakfast nook -- and a hidden compartment for bulky essentials.
Use Empty Walls
Install a hanging rack ($10, ikea.com) on an unused wall for magazines and recipes.
Clear the Counters
Free up precious counter space by placing appliances in a hutch or on a buffet table.
Make a Move
Hide the trash can in a cabinet on a roll-out glide system ($37, lowes.com).
Finding Hiding Spots
Install a small swing-out drawer in front of the sink for sponges and pads.
The homeowners needed a spot for fresh produce, but we wanted to keep the counters clear. Evette picked up straw CD bins for about $5 each at Target and screwed them into the wall. No one could tell they were meant for tunes and not tomatoes!
Evette tackled this tiny kitchen's problems, and few sneaky solutions in unexpected places provide tons of storage.
