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.
Create a hideaway in false sink fronts
Here is where you can buy the whole kit to turn your false sink front into a hideaway storage.
Use magnetic spice containers
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
Hang things on the inside of cupboard doors by using:
Baskets, boxes or racks
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.

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
