Space Saving Ideas for Your Kitchen


Put anything that can go on the walls up there. You can get magnetic knife racks, which are a great storage solution, as well as making knives easily accessible. Another great magnetic space saving solution is little magnetic pots to put herbs and spices; you can get these at most home wares shops as well as Ikea. They stick easily to the side of your fridge or you can buy a metal board to stick on whatever part of the wall you would like them to go.


A pot rail is a great way to store almost anything that can go on a hook, most larger utensils (ladles, spatulas, etc.) will have a little hole in the end for this exact purpose. Not only does it get stuff out of drawers it’s all very easily accessible when you’re cooking and saves time you might normally spend hunting down a particular utensil.


A cabinet shelf doubles your cabinet space, it also means that you don’t have to lift a whole stack of heavy plates to get at what you want on the bottom.


Put your trashcan on the inside of a cabinet door, you can buy them for only around $30, or make your own if you’re feeling handy. Not only does it save space but it also means you don’t have to look at an ugly trash can and improves the appearance of your whole kitchen.


Everyone loves wine glasses, and they’re pretty much essential for people who entertain a lot but they can take up a lot of space in cupboards. Mount a stem-ware rack underneath a cabinet and not only does it create additional space in your cupboards, it looks amazing.

Kitchen carts a great way to add more storage to a small kitchen, when the kitchen is not in use they can sit handily out of the way and can be pushed further out when you’re cooking meals, they can also mean a little extra bench space when you need it.

Once you’ve made enough room in your kitchen, now’s the time to look for dining room furniture. I personally prefer mid century modern dining rooms but of course, you’re free to decide which style goes best with your kitchen. A lot of folks opt for the rustic look which is also quite popular.

Don’t stop there – keep hunting for nifty new ways to save space in your dining room in order to make it appear bigger than it is. Stay tuned for our next post on space saving living room ideas by yours truly!
