Clever kitchen storage ideasWhen it comes to kitchen storage solutions, we tend to want the most bang for our buck.

Clever kitchen storage ideas #1

Clever kitchen storage - spice drawerSpice drawer

I have to admit, I am somewhat of a slacker when it comes to my spices – they are in myriad shaped bottles and even bags.

But if I had a storage space like this one, you could bet that I would be thrilled to organize my spices in the same-sized bottles, and would even place them in alphabetical order. Go me!

Nowadays, many microwaves are quite easy on the eyes, but older models, which are not as attractive, tend to have longevity and work quite well. So if you haven’t discarded your old microwave for a new, stainless steel variety, perhaps you might want to mask it behind a cabinet that pulls down and doubles as a rest for plates and glasses.

Clever kitchen storage - upright utensil drawerUtensil fix’ems

I have to admit that my utensil drawer tends to look a little chaotic as there never seems to be enough space for all the shapes of forks and spoons that I have.

This super clever kitchen storage solution, however, has utensils standing erect rather than laying flat, which I think is a phenomenal idea and allows for more space to place the 150 pieces that most of us own.

My paper towel is on a beautiful stainless steel piece, but no matter where I place it in the kitchen, it looks a bit like an eyesore. So when I laid my eye upon this, I thought, holy wow! This is the best idea.

But now that I have had a moment to think about it, it’s possible that my kids might waste a lot of my money by unrolling it on a daily basis. Not to mention people leaning on it and such. Maybe it would work best in a different, raised location.

This is one of those items that make you wonder why you never thought of it before. The corner drawers maximize storage and make for great fodder when friends come to visit. I strongly recommend that everyone go this route as opposed to a lazy Susan. Why? Because I am just a freak that way.
