Let’s talk kitchens. My kitchen is teeny tiny and storage space is definitely lacking. Anyone else in the same boat? When I first moved in I wasn’t quite sure what to do with my small kitchen appliances, extra wine glasses, and funky shaped items like cake stands. These are all items I like to keep readily available, but there simply isn’t any extra space in my kitchen cabinets.
Enter my now beloved wire shelves. I first got the idea to use these shelves after seeing them styled on The Everygirl. These shelves are a life saver! They create tons of extra space and they only cost $49.99 at Target!
These shelves are now home to my wine rack, bottle stoppers, blender, KitchenAid Mixer, wine glasses, fruit and veggies, baking ingredients, and even my cookbooks! I used affordable marble slabs (from Lowe’s) and trays to create a stable spot to hold the smaller items so they won’t wobble. Don’t be afraid to get creative when it comes to storing your non-refrigerated produce. I keep mine in a large, hand carved wooden bowl that I found at an antique store that’s actually supposed to be used to hold rising dough!
Even though these shelves are in front of the only window in the kitchen they don’t block light because they are so open and airy.
I love having all these items right at my fingertips. Hopefully my next kitchen will be larger so that I won’t have to use these shelves in my next home, but for now they are the perfect space saving solution for this girl on a budget. What sort of tricks do you use in your kitchen?
