Most of us wish we had bigger kitchens, but reality can be a cruel mistress. If you love to cook, today’s urban apartments can leave a lot (like, a lot a lot) to be desired. That said, there are simple hacks you can enact in your existing kitchenette to add space and style without breaking the bank. Here are a few!

west elm - How To Organize A Small Kitchen


1

Curtain rods don’t just have to be for your windows. We attached one to the underside of these shelves to create a beautiful and functional hanging bar for cooking utensils and tea towels.

2

S-hooks are an endlessly useful tool. We love these brass shower hooks created by west elm LOCAL maker Quiet Town Home.

3

Save space on your countertops and in your drawers by putting your knives on a wall-mounted knife block!

4

Open shelving has a tendency to keep you more organized. It keeps everything visible and at-the-ready and gone are the days where you find three-years expired food in the back of your cabinets.

5

Decanting your snacks + dried goods into jars and containers serves two purposes. It’s attractive and oftentimes helps to save space!

6

Try this small-space herb garden hack: place your most-used herbs in a hanging planter and put it right in your window for sunlight.

You know what’s easier + cheaper than tiling? Hanging wallpaper. We used this beautiful geometric wallpaper pattern to mimic the look of decorative tiles.

Hi,

Which the name of the floating shelf product? I can’t seem to find them. And, I’m hoping they can be cut to custom widths.

Thanks.

Hey, Wesley!

The shelves aren’t actually a west elm product, they were custom-made for this kitchen!
