Store them on a shelfFor something easy and versatile, you can’t beat the ubiquitous shelf. Consider the depth and width of your shelves, as there needs to be enough surface area for a wide pan. The neat joinery here has made the most of all available space and provides some roomy spots for cookware.Discover ideas for open storage in your kitchen
Give it awayLet’s be honest, most of us have received a gift or two that we don’t really want. If it’s a seasonal item of food or drink, avoid leaving it to hang around and go stale and instead give it to someone who will appreciate it more. Don’t be shy about re-gifting, as long as you make sure it’s into a different circle of friends!
58 Shelve every spare inchThe awkward shapes thrown up by the slim, side-of-the-fridge spot and sloping ceilings here haven’t been wasted, and pack in useful storage.Design your shelves around the objects you need to store on them to maximise their usefulness. Also, paint them either the same colour as the walls or your units, so they don’t intrude visually into your little space.
