Being lack of space, an apartment kitchen needs a good organization for all the stuffs we have. While it keeps the kitchen tidy, it also enhances your productivity while in it. Don’t know where can you slip the cupboard? Try these following ideas for alternatives!
1. Hang Them
While keeping those pots and pans in the drawer or cabinet is fine, hanging them like this is brilliant. It frees some space for other things while these pots and pans are far easier to find as well. No more cooking frenzy while in rush.
2. A Riser
Whenever you are lack of spaces in the kitchen, get a riser like this one. This is totally foolproof and it allows you to free up some surface to work on, while it organizes many of your spices in the most wonderful order.
3. Over the Above Cabinet
This space is often forgotten. Most kitchens still have enough space for storage above the cabinet. To avoid the cluttering look, you can try to put things on rattan and metal baskets, wooden racks, and any other kinds of organizing items.
4. Above Doorway Shelf
This DIY shelf is the most brilliant and welcomed one. This space is often left unused while it can actually provide enough space for your wine, olive oil, and even more. Simply repurpose old crates and attach it above the doorway to make this.
5. Hang Shelf for Your Tableware

7. Hang Aside
The side of your cabinet is often a forgotten potential place. This kitchen gives you a good example of how to use it. Simply add several rows of hooks on it, and you can hang your kitchen utensils on it. Easy to reach, easy to keep.
8. Wheeled Cart
This cart works wonderfully in organizing your utensils. Being wheeled, you can roll it out and in whenever you need to. Tuck it in under the closet when you need the surface more, and pull it out when you need to reach one of the utensils.
9. Curtain Rod Lid Organizer
Lids are often nightmare when it comes to organize it. The shape is awkward and it often leaves awkward free space in the shelf. As an alternative to cramping it into the cabinet, add curtain rods in anywhere you like and keep the lids there.
10. Magnetic Racks

12. Magnetic Knife Rack
If you love cooking, knife organization can be killing. It takes enough surface that you need, and it is sometime hard to find otherwise. This magnetic rack solves it. Attach it on any available space on the wall, and you are good.
13. Vertical Rack in Adjoining
When you don’t see it possible to add some more in the kitchen, place a vertical rack right in the adjoining room. It makes sure you aren’t too cramped inside the kitchen while it still looks right in decoration point of view.
14. You Need Shelf Riser
Do you find that there are still spaces in the shelf but it is impossible to mount things together? Then add risers like the ones this shelf uses. It transforms awkward empty space into potential storage to keep even more things!
15. Various Shapes in the Shelf
The point of adding a shelf in a kitchen is to put as many things as possible, especially when you have a lot of kitchen stuffs. Try to vary the shape and sizes of the rows in the shelf like this one. It allows you to accommodate many shapes and sizes of the stuff too.
16. Pegboard Power
This pegboard is added right over the kitchen cabinet, freeing some space under and providing enough places for your pots and pans. While hanging is practical too, this one is actually a décor at the same time. This system works while it looks wonderful too.
17. Window Shelf
This shelf is actually a DIY one. You only need to add two or three rows of horizontal holders and add hooks on it. It is mostly appropriate for pots and pans because the space between the window glass and the stuff is big enough.
18. Behind the Cabinet Door
Let’s not forget that there are often free spaces between the shelf and the cabinet doors. Why don’t we use it? Add racks, hooks, or magnetic plate on it, so we can hang several stuffs and free up some more space in the shelf.
19. Extra Drawers
We definitely need to add small drawers inside a deep cabinet. You can use baskets of all kinds as drawers. This kitchen uses several drawers in the shelf, allowing the owner to use all spaces inside for storage.
20. Open Cabinet
This idea is mostly recommended for a small kitchen. It allows you to keep more things in various shapes and sizes without cramping it. While it organizes the kitchen, it also makes a wonderful display for all the things you have.
