Many kitchens have awkward spaces and tiny areas that could be put to better use. If your kitchen has just such a problem, then why not consider a filing cabinet, large or small, for a custom set of new storage?

Those unusual spaces that many renters and homeowners find in their kitchens can drive you bonkers. You just know there could be a better solution to that gap under the counters — and indeed there is!

Filing cabinets come in all sorts of sizes for all different uses. This one featured over at Better Homes and Gardens hails from IKEA and when coupled with a thick cutting board it becomes perfect countertop height. Not only does it fill the gap but it’s a great place to store awkward items that don’t play well with others (potato masher and ladle we’re looking at you).
