When you're short on cupboard space, a combination of wall-mounted racks with smart cabinet organizers can make a tiny kitchen more functional. Here's our list of best sources for pot racks, drawer organizers, cabinet space-savers, and food storage.

Pot Racks

In a small kitchen, a wall or ceiling-mounted pot rack can free up valuable cabinet space. Look for sturdy wood and/or steel racks that can carry a good amount of weight.

Drawer Organizers

Tiny kitchens often come with narrow drawers. When shopping for a silverware organizer, look for modular, interlocking styles that can be configured to fit inside a tight space.

Cabinet and Pantry Organizers

To make the most of your available cabinet space, consider basic shelving inserts, roll-out drawer organizers, or—if you've got a little more to spend—a hinged or pivoting system.
