Of all rooms in the home, kitchen space always seems the most limited. Cupboards piled high with KitchenAids, slow cookers, blenders and the like, the small space can easily start to feel like a chaotic, claustrophobic warzone. If you’re still awaiting the master chef kitchen of your dreams, consider some of these clever solutions for a clutter-free kitchen.
COLLAPSIBLE KITCHEN TOOLS
It’s not uncommon for every kitchen cabinet, counter and drawer to be overflowing with gadgets that we sparingly use, but know we need to keep on-hand. It’s a frequent enough problem that Danish design company Normann Copenhagen has created a clever, award-winning solution. They’ve designed a beautiful collection of kitchen tools, all that that fold down to a fraction of the volume to comfortably fit in a drawer.
The rubber and steel colander is sturdy enough to handle any load of pasta, fruits, or vegetables, but folds down to the size of a small frisbee.
With every nook and cranny of your cabinets and drawers already occupied, one way to create extra storage is by making better use of your walls.
These Normann Copenhagen wall pockets are perfect for holding kitchen ephemera like utensils, tools, cleaning supplies, or cookbooks. They’re mounted on a sliding wall bracket, making them easy to clean when your new tomato sauce concoction goes a flyin’.You can also install a few simple hooks for hanging things like cutting boards and kitchen towels, freeing up a bit of extra space on your countertop.
