Moving out from a large house with extra space to an apartment with minimal space is often difficult. However, it doesn’t have to be as hard as we think. We have created 20 simple and easy-to-use tips that can maximise your storage and living space in an organised and crisp way.
The first five tips are to help enhance your kitchen space and to make your cooking and cleaning regime much easier and more efficient.
1. Clear containers
Using transparent containers to store your ingredients will be a life changer if you are the type to buy in bulk or to buy in small amounts. This method is super organised and saves space by not having to rummage through boxes of cereal or bags of sugar. Another great thing about this method, it’s most probably going to save you money! How many times has your sugar bag had a hole and has emptied into your pantry? By using containers or jars it helps maximise space as you can stack and label as well.
2. Pull out bins or racks in cabinets or drawers
This is something nifty that most people don’t think of adding. Placing pull out bins or racks in your kitchen cabinets is a great way to keep pots and pans organised, keep smaller sachets items together. It also helps you not having to crawl into your cabinet to find that one pot lid that fell in the back of the shelving.
3. Spice rack over the door pantry
Instead of having your spice rack out in the open on your countertops, put them away behind your pantry door! If your pantry door doesn’t have room for this tip, you can also try hanging it from the side of your fridge if your fridge is in an open space. This hack is great for not only organisation but keeping your spices in a space where it’s not taking up extra room on your countertops or in your cupboards.
4. Back of cabinet doors can hang lids of pots and pans
Sometimes pots and pans take up the most room in a cabinet. If your kitchen cabinets have some depth, you should try adding hooks onto the back of your doors. This will allow you to hang up the lids of the pots and pans. This method is great, because it allows you to stack your pots in the cabinet and gives you more space to add any extra kitchen utensils you might need to hide away.
