Struggling to fit everything in the minimum space in a tiny kitchen? A lot of apartments do not come with enough kitchen area to fit in everything you require and you have to stack everything which can look real messy. Here are 5 hacks to save space in a tiny kitchen area and make it more organized and convenient for you.
Instead of stacking up everything horizontally in the space, try storing things vertically. Install a vertical pegboard on the kitchen wall and hang your pots, pans and other utensils on that. This will save a lot of space you would have otherwise required for storing these items. You can even put on a board to hang your cups and mugs.
