Hang pots and pans.
Instead of taking up valuable cabinet space with these clunky items, use Command Hooks to hang them on an unused wall, like this pro organizer did.
Start by hanging the biggest items first, then incorporate the medium-sized ones and finish with the smallest items.
Switch up what goes where.
Your storage doesn't have to be used in the way it was originally intended.
Instead of hanging towels that look cluttered on this rack, pot and pan lids looks streamlined and polished.
Install storage under benches.
Not only does a breakfast nook bench take up less space than chairs, but this one also has storage hidden underneath the seat cushions for less-frequently-used items, like holiday tablecloths.
Try a drop-leaf table.
If you yearn for an eat-in kitchen, but a large table just won't fit, consider a foldable option.
The leaves flip up so everyone has a spot come dinner time, but tuck out of the way when not in use.
