Making the Most of Your Kitchen's Wasted Space

Finding creative solutions for storage means you keep all the necessary cooking, serving and eating supplies within easy reach without cluttering up valuable counter space. Your kitchen may contain wasted space ready to be used.
The most common areas for wasted space is in corner cabinets and around appliances. Rev-A-Shelf has solutions for these areas that will maximize your storage space and your organization. Here are a few:
1.Space around appliances: Appliances like ovens, refrigerators, and microwaves can take up a lot of precious real estate in the kitchen. They are often built into the cabinets, with inches of space wasted on each side. Pull-out organizers (like this one from Rev a Shelf, are designed to create more storage in those spaces, while still putting items out of sight and keeping the cabinet design cohesive. Another underutilized space is the hard-to-reach cabinet above the refrigerator.
