From The Kitchn → A Kitchen Space Saver: The Door-Mount Cutting Board from Rev-A-Shelf
We did something like this recently to stash our potholders--but in this case, we repurposed an over-the-door hook often used in bathrooms (and found in the bathroom fixtures aisle at Target), placing it in the cabinet. Yes, you can see the hook when the cabinet is closed, but that's a minor quibble and it holds the potholders quite well. Keeps the counter space a bit tidier and we have a very small galley kitchen, so that's important. This is a solid tip.
Yes, absolutely. It's most efficient to store large, flat items like cutting boards, cookie sheets, platters and such standing upright. I have a narrow-ish cupboard in my kitchen dedicated to these items.However, I like a cutting board I can toss into the dishwasher. Wooden ones look nice, but the plastic/acrylic ones are less trouble and more sanitary.
I think this would work really well (be less expensive) with two spice racks
Sometimes genius comes to you with a slap on the forehead. I use a similar trick for large pot lids, using cheap towel bars ( the real cheap skinny ones). I put polyethylene tubing (sliced lengthwise) on the bar to protect the lids. Got the idea from AT The Kitchn.
