10 Snazzy Ways to Organize and Store Small Appliances

Some small appliances have all the luck. Instead of getting shoved in the back of a cupboard or left to gather dust on a bottom shelf, these small appliances get the red carpet treatment, with pull-out shelves and hidden cabinets devoted entirely to storing them in style and comfort. Ah, it’s good to be a small appliance — at least if you’re in one of these kitchens!

Appliance garages have gone by the wayside, which is why many of these solutions are what I’d call the new appliance garage — namely, just a smart area (usually a designated cabinet) where small appliances can sit neatly and comfortably within reach.

Even — or maybe especially! — microwaves benefit from this strategy. Those bulky machines look positively streamlined when fit snugly into a cabinet or shelf.

Chances are, you don’t have room for a setup that could even come close to any of these (I know I don’t!), but that doesn’t mean they’re not fun to look at.

How do you store your small appliances? Do you have a special setup that keeps things neat and tidy?
