Adding an open spice or sauce rack not only look beautiful. But can also make it convenient for you to grab condiments while you are busy cooking. These racks are usually sleek as they do not have to hold a lot of items. Also, you can place them right above your cooktop or the preparation counter.

2. Hanging shelves

By increasing the depth of a rack, it can quickly be turned into a hanging shelf. These shelves can be used to hold a number of different things including tissues, clock, and even your drinkware. Apart from this, they are also sturdy enough to keep bigger things.

3. Hooks

One of the most efficient space saving storage techniques is installing hooks. These can be screwed in on the bottom of your over the counter cabinets. They are ideal for hanging mugs, spoons, and even other cooking utensils which have a strong handle.

Kitchen islands are becoming favorite day by day. Although, most people opt for a solid concrete block instead of a multifunctional one. To increase your storage area, you can even incorporate shelves in these islands as seen in the picture.

6. Two in one

Another creative way of maximizing storage area in your kitchen is by opting for a similar two in one design. Hear the open shelves also have a closed cabinet on one side. The design makes the cabinets multifunctional as you can use them for storage as well as decoration.

7. Pull out cabinets

Pull out drawers are not that uncommon in kitchens. However, what makes this idea more creative is the fact that the base has been designed using metal racks. This does not allow dust to accumulate on and water to damage the shelves.
