5 tips for small space living…kitchens. 

I’m not gonna lie, getting used to small space living has been tough but we are adjusting. I’ve shared tips for living with a small bedroom, living room and bathroom before, and now it’s time to turn to the kitchen.

In my opinion a small kitchen is the hardest room to organize.

We have a galley kitchen in this house and it’s probably the smallest one we’ve ever had. We don’t even have room for a microwave…gasp…I know. 😉

So, in my quest to try to make good use of the small amount of space that we have, I’ve found some great storage and space-saving ideas.

Not enough storage space for your pots and pans? No problem…just hang them on a wall using some cool, industrial looking pot hangers.

We have very little wall space in the kitchen, and no home office, so I use the inside of our cabinet doors for calendars, etc.

I also post my to-do list for the hubs, because we are big list makers.

Now that we’ve covered small space living with kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms and bedrooms, I’m ready to work on organizing our spaces.
