When in doubt, look high
If cabinet space is tight, then think about what you could do higher up. If there’s unused space, for example above the fridge, or even about the door, then you can add in some extra shelving. We love this idea of installing a rolling ladder for the places you can’t reach.

Cut it out
If you’re feeling really creative, then you can build and modify a chopping board so it fits over your sink. This is a great way to save on that all important counter space. Alternatively, you could make it fit on top of your stove for when you’re not using all the hobs.

Stylish hanging
S hooks can be a kitchen’s saving grace. Installing a chrome rail and hanging yours pots, pans and utensils saves valuable space in drawers and cupboards, and can also look rather stylish.
