What Houzz contributors are saying:
Overhead cabinets: Clear up space in the ‘work’ zone by extending or adding new cabinets overhead and use them for storing the extra and less-used utensils and appliances. Consider utilising the space above the fridge to install cabinets as well. Use the cabinet doors: Attach small shelves on the insides of the doors of kitchen cabinets or cupboards to store the little things that usually get lost in the mix. Though fixed shelves are best in this case, pegs and rods would also do the trick. Customise the shelves according to what you need and what best fits this space. Kitchen Storage: How to Pack a Punch
Reach up highAre your ceilings extra high? Do your cabinets reach right up to them? If not, then you could be missing out on potential storage space. In this lofty room, an extra bank of cabinets has been built to make the most of the available space, in conjunction with a ladder that slides along on a rail so that the top shelves can be reached. Bespoke cabinets, if you can afford them, may make more sense than off-the-peg numbers in unusual-shaped spaces.
3. Step insideWith space at a premium, sometimes you have to work with what you’ve got, so why not add a shallow spice rack to the inside of a cupboard door? Do be sure to check it won’t stop the door from closing. In some cases, making an internal shelf more narrow might be necessary for this to work.
