How many smart storage and organization solutions can you fit on one kitchen wall? Quite a few, it turns out! Despite not occupying a lot of square footage, the owners of this Chicago kitchen have made the most of every available bit of horizontal and vertical space. Here are seven details worth noting.
- Floating shelves: Four floating shelves right above the stove hold spices, dishes, and a few decorative accessories. Notice the shelves aren't packed; it's just enough to be both practical and pretty.
- A few nails for hanging miscellany: We spy a vintage photo, a bouquet of dried herbs, and a few other hanging items the likes of which we can't quite discern (candles? dish brushes?), but the point is that these little pieces fill in the empty wall space in a warm, casual way.
- A utensil crock: To keep the most-used tools close at hand.
- Glass containers and jars all in a row: A great way to make use of that little ledge area below the shelf.
- Under-cabinet lighting: So key.
- A large chopping board: Big enough to cover up a ho-hum countertop.
- A fantastic rug: To keep things soft underfoot and provide a little color and texture.
We adore the whole thing, don't you?
