Do you need to maximize your space in a small kitchen? Look no further, we have 5 of the best organization ideas and storage tips for your kitchen!
1. Use a Lazy Susan
A lazy susan is a handy rotating tray in which you are able to turn and rotate to move food, ingredients, or salt, pepper, or your spice rack easily.
These take up minimal space compared to having to line up each of the items on your dinner table.
Not only is a lazy susan helpful when eating, it only takes up a small amount of counter space and can even be used to store cutlery, spices, and other cooking utensils.
2. Food Storage Made Easy
Often our kitchens get overcrowded with a large amount of food sitting on countertops or baskets.
Why not organize these into glass jars or canisters? Various food items and dry food can be stored in easy-to-see glass storage jars or storage containers to fee up a shelf or countertop.
3. Pull-Out Cupboards for Built-In Space
Make a huge dent in your kitchen clutter by storing cookware, crockery, or food in a handy pull-out cabinet.
Common Uses for this style of cabinetry include hanging up pots and pans, smart kitchen gadgets, kitchen utensils, cleaning supplies, cooking oils, and food ingredients.
We have found that maximizing smart pull-out cupboards allows for extra storage space and also gives a kitchen a modern look and feel.

There is nothing worse than having a chaotic section of cutting boards in your kitchen. Some try to utilize kitchen cabinets to store their boards or cabinet doors.
These can definitely work as decent storage solutions, however, using dividers and vertical slots for cutting boards is a genius way to create a designated cutting board cabinet.
5. Using the Kitchen Sink for Smart Storage

For example, the kitchen sink has incredible potential to save you space in a small or tiny kitchen, or even just to declutter!
