Small Kitchen Storage Ideas


Small Kitchen Storage Ideas - Use small stackable shelves - when you need to utilize all the space you can in your small RV kitchen.

Small Kitchen Storage Ideas - When you're limited in space you need to make the most of all the storage that you have in your small RV kitchen. These tips will help you to maximize the space to get the most storage and usefulness.Sometimes I wonder if some of the RV kitchens that I see can actually be classed as a ‘kitchen’; they’re so small that I’m surprised if anything more than a cup of tea can be prepared in the space.

But no matter what size your RV or kitchen, there are always ways that you can utilise the space so that you get maximum storage and use out of it.

I know many of us don’t go RVing so that you can spend hours cooking and preparing meals, but you do want whatever space you do have, to be practical and useful.

Here are some of the most useful small kitchen storage ideas that I could find.

Hopefully they’ll give you some inspiration for how you can organised the space in your own RV kitchen.

Use magnetic spice containers

Small Kitchen Storage Ideas - Use magnetic spice containers - when you need to utilize all the space you can in your small RV kitchen.

These magnetic spice containers can be stored on the door or side of the fridge, or if you have a steel splash back then you can store them there and have them right at hand.

Use a tension rod to hang spray bottles

Small Kitchen Storage Ideas - Use tension rods to hang spray bottles - when you need to utilize all the space you can in your small RV kitchen.

This idea is from A Thousand Words and is great because it gets the bottles up off the bottom of the cupboard so that you can utilize the space for other things. Find tension rods here.

Hang things on the inside of cupboard doors by using:

Hooks

Small Kitchen Storage Ideas - Add hooks (either over cupboard door, fixed or command) and make the most of some of that wasted space.

Either Over Cupboard, Fixed or Command Hooks


Baskets, boxes or racks

Small Kitchen Storage Ideas - use the inside of your cupboards by hanging baskets, boxes or racks to store items. Especially the ones that are used often as this space is easy to get to.

Baskets and boxes don’t have to be what you would normally think, these document holders work perfectly for foil, plastic wrap and baking paper. (Fun fact: in NZ aluminium foil = tin foil and plastic wrap / cling film = glad wrap).

If you’re renovating an RV or converting a bus or van, then the world is your oyster! Rather than just trying to add storage spaces wherever you can, you can incorporate storage solutions into your design. Here are some of the great ideas that I think are worth exploring.

Pull-out pantry

Hideaway microwave

Small Kitchen Storage Ideas - Hideaway the microwave so that it can go into a cupboard sideways and doesn't take up precious counter space.

A microwave is often only used for really short amounts of time and rather infrequently, so it makes sense to hide it away and bring it out only when it’s needed. Source: Apartment Therapy

    I really need more ideas!! Love what I see but it doea not reflect the solution for why I am.having a issue!! We just bought a 94 model 5th wheel. The kitchen is so nice. Has plenty of drawers..but there is a pantry cabinet. And a cabinet along the wall. The wall is in the curve of the camper. So the inside wall is curved. This makes for smaller space and less items that can be stored there. Then to top it off, the cabinet is not wide enough to put my plates in. We are RVing full time!!

    Try putting your plates and cups in a drawer using dowels or cardboard dividers. In our trailer I use magazine holders to hold my melamine plates and platters in an upper cabinet because I have small drawers. I do have some smaller glasses in my drawer with cardboard dividers like for ornaments.
