5 kitchen storage ideas to maximise space in a small kitchen

For many, the kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s the room where delicious meals are prepared, self starters take their first sip of coffee and families congregate at the end of the day to share stories. Whether you have a small, single counter unit or a large kitchen with an island, there’s always a need for more space. Here are a few easy kitchen storage ideas that will help you create more space and memories in your kitchen.

Make use of vertical space

Don’t limit your storage space to what’s in reach. Instead, make use of the full height of the kitchen. Extend your cupboards vertically and add an extra row of shelves, storing gadgets you don’t often use in the higher storage areas.

Hang items on the wall

Harness your wall space to hang items that don’t quite fit in the cupboard. For example, use hooks to hang cooking tools, cutting boards and other equipment. You can also use this as an opportunity to add a bit of style to the kitchen by installing unique hooks or rails to match the finishes.

Conceal your workspace

Preparing food in a cramped space is both frustrating and unproductive, and opening up a workspace can make the kitchen feel even more restrictive. A pull out workspace is a nifty solution that gives you the space you need to prepare meals in the kitchen without creating clutter.

Declutter the Tupperware cupboard 

Speaking of clutter, the kitchen is a common culprit! From mismatched Tupperware and expired non-perishables to multiple sets of cutlery and unnecessary appliances, items can quickly accumulate in the kitchen if not regularly organised. Take the time to declutter the kitchen and donate, store or throw out excess belongings. 

Add drawers to your island

Countertops and work areas often have more space than you realise. Make the most of the space by adding drawers and storage areas wherever possible. For example, the kitchen island can act as a workstation or dining area, as well as drawers to hold excess items.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
