10. Black Matte Wall-Mounted Rack
This pantry is so tiny that you can’t store your kitchen utensils here without cramming them all. The best way to organize both the kitchen utensils and spices is by making some wall-mounted racks, just like what you can see here.
The spices are stored in open shelves at the corner of the pantry, separated from the kitchen utensils. It will help you find the spices that you are going to add to your meal in no time.
The kitchen utensils are hung on three bars hanging on the black matte wall from the floor to ceiling. The S-hooks make a steady line on each bar, holding the pans and pots in place. Painting the bars the same colour as the wall can make a great camouflage, making the kitchen utensils appear to be floating.
9. Stainless Steel Wall-Mounted Rack
These stainless-steel racks are what the real space-saving is all about. Instead of investing in some wall-mounted cabinets that make your small kitchen look more cramped, you’d better install some stainless-steel storage racks.
You can begin with two or three single bars to hang your spatulas. But don’t forget to add some S-hooks to hold them. For bigger things like frying pans and pots, you can install a wider rack right beneath the ceiling. Installing a magnetic knife rack near the countertop is also a great idea so you can grab them in a jiffy, but make sure you install it high enough so your kids won’t be able to reach the knives.

Let’s try a better idea to store your spices. It’s a DIY spice rack. This spice rack features five open shelves that you can use to organize your spices. Don’t forget to install a thin wooden or stainless-steel bar in each shelf to prevent the spice containers from falling. And to provide more floor space, just hang the rack near the countertop so you can grab the spice you need easily.
