    27 Products You Need If You Have A Tiny Kitchen

    Or, if you don't have a tiny kitchen (congrats) but want to save some space.

    1. An expandable shelf that you can put in your cabinets or on your kitchen counter to make use of vertical space.

    Promising review: "I love these Seville expandable shelves; they have completely transformed my kitchen cabinets. I have older-style wood, two-shelf cabinets that are very high. Before I bought these expandable shelves, I was stacking things on top of other things in order to take full advantage of the cabinets β€” what a hassle to get to stuff! These shelves were PERFECT for turning those two-shelf cabinets into four-shelf. They are super sturdy and easily expanded. Also, I find that they are quite attractive and blend nicely into the rest of the cabinet despite the expandable shelves being metal while the cabinets are colored a light beige-pale yellow color." β€”S. Blades

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99.

    2. A geometric wine rack, which will give you the opportunity to show off your love of artful stacking and your discerning taste in vino.

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Tasty collection at Walmart for $17.44.

    You can also find a six-piece prep/mixing set here.

    6. A fold-down kitchen table/desk to create some much-coveted standing room for guests.

    Promising review: "I recently moved into a 400 sq. ft. house with my boyfriend. I work from home and this desk is an amazing space saver. I'm a designer and can fit my MacBook Pro AND my Wacom tablet side-by-side no problem. It's holding up very well and I love it" β€”OstkUser21636767

    Get it from Amazon for $126.22 (available in three colors) or Overstock for $146.49 (antique white only).

    Get it from West Elm for $75 (available in beech and black); get 25% off + free shipping with code YESWAY.

    8. An upright spiral fruit basket that gives you art *and* smart vertical storage in one shiny package.

    Get it from Amazon for $33.73 or Wayfair for $36.99.

    9. Or an under-the-cabinet fruit hammock, if you want to avoid using counter space altogether.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.15.

    10. A rack stand that fits 18 of your spices, which will either encourage you to declutter your kitchen or buy 18 spices.

    Includes 48 labels.

    Promising review: "Nice product. As described. Very functional, and takes up much less space than 18 individual bottles standing upright. Allows for easy identification with most labels already printed, as well as blank labels for the more unusual spices. Sturdy rack and nice weight to the glass jars. Glass jars have 'shaker' lids inside the stainless tops. Delivered on time in easy-to-open packaging. Only assembly needed is to add rubber feet to the bottom of the rack." β€”Swaffar

    Get it from Amazon for $24.87.

    11. A set of nesting storage containers can finally give you a reason to consolidate your cupboard storage and toss any orphan lids.

    Includes 12 containers.

    Promising review: "We have had these now for over a year. They are wonderful. They are BPA-free, they store food well, they dish-wash well, they freeze well, they microwave well, and they take up very little room. We no longer have lids without containers, we no longer have containers without lids." β€”TasmanTruckee

    Get it from Amazon for $21.86+ (available in four set sizes).

    12. A floating shelf to give some of your most-reached-for items a home (that is not the countertops or on top of your fridge).

    Can be mounted by high-strength adhesive tape or a screw (both included).

    Get it from Bed Bath & Beyond for $29.99.

    13. A set of ridged, stackable glasses that'll beat lining your entire cupboard with single glasses.

    Get it from West Elm for $30 (for six); get 25% off + free shipping with code YESWAY.

    14. A tip-out tray for your cleaning supplies, if you have those false drawers under your sink that aren't pulling much weight.

    Promising review: "We remodeled our kitchen and have been trying to find ways to create more storage space and be more organized. This kit works out perfectly to make use of the false drawers in front of the sink. They were super easy to install β€” it only took me 10 minutes." β€”Z Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $18.59+ (available in two sizes).

    15. A wineglass rack that can make use of the space underneath your cabinets while always keeping your precious stemware at arm's reach.

    Promising review: "Love love love these wineglass holders. Exactly what the bar area of the kitchen needed to complete the theme and maximize the space. Easy to install." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99.

    16. A folding kitchen cart, because you could really use some extra meal-prep space but also want that space back as soon as you're done.

    Promising review: "I love this cart! The woodblock is heavy-duty and the wheels glide easily around my kitchen floor. I have a small space and needed extra countertop and storage. The open design is perfect. Quasi-industrial in appearance, the cart is simultaneously retro and modern. I priced a lot of carts and this one is a heck of a deal. One of my best buys this year!" β€”P. Kandt

    Get it from Amazon for $84.60+ (available in three colors).

    17. A magnetic nesting utensil set (including a slotted spatula, spaghetti server, slotted spoon, solid spoon, and ladle) that you'll cling to.

    Promising review: "I love how these nestle into one another because I'm not a fan of kitchen utensils being out on the countertops for dust or splashes from cooking to creep onto. But these manage both of those concerns. Small amount of space taken up so it can be placed almost anywhere, including not close to the stove top, and the nestle feature keeps them mostly tucked away from anything dirty. Especially if you use them often. Magnet works great." β€”Nichole

    Get it from Amazon for $22.07+ (available in two color options).

    18. A bamboo salad bowl with a lid that doubles as a cutting board, because you deserve a contraption to handle all stages of salad prep.

    Promising review: "Beautiful and very useful set of bowls! I bought the first set as a gift, but when I saw them, I knew I would have to order a set for myself. We take food to work and have potlucks all the time, and being able to store the serving utensils in the lid is slick!" β€”Cindy C.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    19. A four-piece cooking set that'll streamline your home-cooked meals in addition to clearing space in your cupboards.

    The set includes: two large cooking pots, steamer, griddle and lid.

    Promising review: "This is my go-to microwave pot. It helped me cut down on cooking with fat. Tonight, I made meatloaf in it and built it in the bottom and cooked it on the sieve, letting grease drip into the bottom. The lid kept the steam in. A pound of ground meat took six min. in a 1000 watt micro and came out moist. I store the remainder right in the fridge. Really pleased with this pot!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    20. A three-tier cooling rack, because your limited counter space should never stand between you and the many baked goods you intend to make.

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Tasty collection at Walmart for $8.87.

    21. An expandable under-the-sink organizer you'll be able to assemble without a sweat.

    Promising review: "In my opinion, under the kitchen sink is one of the hardest places to organize and this product makes it very easy. It's quick and easy to assemble and customize to your space. I was originally concerned about it fitting due to our dog food container under the sink, but it fit perfectly!" β€”wljustice

    Get it from Amazon for $39.37.

    22. A clip-on colander, because there's truly no reason for a standard, single-function colander to take up that much space.

    Promising review: "This worked so well for draining beef grease from my large 12" fry pan. There was no leaking whatsoever like I was afraid of. It poured perfectly into a small cup. I also used it to drain hot water from boiling noodles for the same dinner! I had tried everything to drain fat, from spooning it out, turkey basting it, and most recently trying to scoop it out and pat it dry. This is a lifesaver! I cannot wait to use it again!" β€”Ashley M

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in red and green).

    23. A magnetic organization rack, for when you've used up all your shelves but still need a spot for your paper towels and odds and ends.

    Promising review: "Awesome. My wife and I have finally stopped fighting about where to leave the paper towel roll. Very strong magnet." β€”Bruce Cota

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99.

    24. A two-tier storage shelf that'll teach you to stop cutting corners and use your kitchen corners.

    Get it from Amazon for $23.88.

    25. A pack of snappable trivet rings to protect your surfaces from hot pots and pans.

    Get it from Bed Bath and Beyond for $9.99 (for six).

    26. An under-shelf drying rack, so you don't have to use the kitchen counter β€” or ever forget where you put your go-to mug for your morning joe.

    Promising review: "This is a cool little product. Saves me space and is convenient to grab when I am half asleep in the morning before my coffee wake-up." β€”vivian

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    27. And a pull-out bin that you can clip onto your fridge shelves to create space you didn't even know you had.

    Promising review: "Thought this would be a cheap thing that would break after several uses. Wrong. It slides out nicely, was easy to put together, and is a great space saver. If you buy the Costco eggs, you know how the flat carton takes up precious fridge space. This solves it!" β€”Dogmama

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.
