Storage solutions for cramped kitchens

So much goes on in the kitchen that working within a small space can seem impossible. Being smart about storage, however, is a great way to open up the room and reduce clutter - and it can be pretty stylish, too.

Think vertically
Consider installing cabinets that go all the way to the ceiling instead of leaving a gap on top, which would just collect dust anyway. You can also free up precious cabinet storage by hanging your pots and pans from a pot rack, which is always a charming look in a small space.

Open up
Make your kitchen feel lighter and larger by using cabinets with no doors or open shelving. This creates an airy look while still giving you the same storage capability as closed shelving. It can also help you reduce clutter and allows you to display your dishes decoratively.

Eat-in
A small island or table in the center of the kitchen is a great use of space. So long as there's still enough room to move around, these surfaces make for extra storage and a casual yet stylish place to dine. For seating, choose stools or armless chairs that can be slipped under the island or table and kept out of the way when not in use. Chairs that are the same color as your walls or inside mounted blinds that blend into your window box and create the illusion of even more space.
