posted on July 29, 2020

They say the kitchen is the heart of the home, and we could all use a little extra space in our hearts.  These simple, tool-free small kitchen hacks will help you use your available space more efficiently, help you stay organized, and make you feel better about the time you spend in the kitchen. 

Magnetic spice rack

Don’t ignore all the free space on your refrigerator. It’s good for more than just displaying priceless works of your kid’s/niece’s/nephew’s artwork. Think of it as a blank canvas for clever storage ideas. You can free up some counter space with this DIY magnetic spice rack. If you’re not the DIY type, you can take the easy route and simply get yourself some of these magnetic spice jars.

Add temporary counter space

You can easily add some workspace over your sink with an over-the-sink cutting board. They come in a variety of styles -- some with built-in strainers to further help with food prep. 

Use your cabinet doors

After you’re done using the space-saving over-the-sink cutting board, you’ll need a place to store it. Think your cabinets are already full? Think again! This cabinet door organizer easily hooks over the door of your cupboard. It can add storage to the outside or inside of the cabinet door. 

Expand the space under the sink

Storing things under the sink is common in every kitchen, but there is often some unused space hiding in plain sight. This expandable under the sink organizer adds a whole new level of storage space. It is expandable from side to side and easily adjusts to fit around pipes. There are even two pull-out bins for easy access. 

We hope that these small kitchen hacks help you make the most of a cozy kitchen.
