Add Extra Storage to Your Kitchen-Part 2

Storage is never enough for the kitchen. We have way too much stuff in the kitchen, for example, condiments, kitchen appliances, snack boxes, pans, pots and so on, do I need to go on? Piling all these stuff on your countertop and island could be distressing to the eyes every time you step in the kitchen. You might be thinking that decluttering them needs a lot of storage cabinet. Even you have a small kitchen and it doesn’t fit in any more cabinet, there are still ways to keep the clutter out of view.

1. Add pot rails on the empty wall
