I have been wanting to make this post for a while now, but i kept postponing it! I am not sure why! I just decided today to share with you how we organized our small kitchen! There is not much to do with a rental kitchen but IKEA saved the day! Here’s what we did!
We took advantage of the small gap next to the fridge. That’s about 25 cm wide. Laiva bookcase from IKEA was a great fit for that space. That’s were we keep lots of stuff. Bread, plastic containers, easy to get food supplies. After the baby started crawling and walking we made a few adjustments to make it safer.
We also got Variera shelf inserts for our cabinets. We have 5 large and 3 small ones. These simple shelves doubled the storage space in our cupboards. I love them! We use the corner cabinet and another small one as pantry and for keeping stuff we rarely use. Glasses, dishes and pots are in the other 3 cabinets.
We also got rails , baskets and hooks which we hang under our cupboards. We keep kitchen utensils, coffee, spices and a few baby stuff there. Oh! And the dish soap and sponges! We have 2 adhesive cooks at fridge for our towels.
After the building basement flooded last year we brought lots of Panos’s stuff from there in the appartment. For -some of – these tini tiny weird things i took advantage of the space above the cabinets. I wrapped them in plastic bags and placed them in some cheap baskets!
I’ll tell you a secret ! Before the baby started moving around the house we had some of Panos’s stuff in the fireplace!!!!!!!!! Shame i know! But they are endless!!!!!!!!!!!!
Do you have any IKEA organization accessories at your kitchen? Who doesn’t right? Even my grandma loves IKEA!
P.S. : Needless to say that our kitchen does not usually look like that! I promise i’ll give you the REAL house tour soon!
