5 Super-Smart Storage Ideas to Steal from One Kitchen — Organizing

When blogger Joni Lay set out to remodel the kitchen in her Georgia bungalow, she knew she had to max out every possible inch in order to make it functional for her young family of five. The catch? At around 1600 square feet, her home didn't boast many options for a cabinet-packed layout.

However, thanks to some clever space-making tricks (which you're totally going to want to steal), the family ended up with a room that is as practical as it is pretty.

10 Small Appliances That’ll Actually Fit in Your Tiny Rental Kitchen — The Smart Appliance Shopper

If you have a small kitchen and love to cook, it can be kind of a bummer. (Maybe we're projecting — although we're speaking from experience here!) You just want all the gadgets and have no where to put them! Sorry, a seven-quart slow cooker shouldn't really be stored in the bathtub when not in use.

The good news is that there are some small appliances with smaller-than-usual footprints that are sure to fit in your space.


How I Found the Right Big Appliances for My Tiny Kitchen — The Smart Appliance Shopper

It's ironic that living in one of the biggest cities in the world means having teeny-tiny appliances. I suppose it makes its own kind of sense — I reside on the island of Manhattan, a 23-square-mile strip of land that I share with more than 1.6 million other people. Space is tight, which means, among other things, that I didn't own a dishwasher until about a year ago, even though I've been a grown-up with a job and a career for some time now.

How I Hosted Thanksgiving in My 195-Square-Foot Apartment — Small-Space Hospitality

I took just a couple photos at Thanksgiving dinner last year in my tiny studio apartment, and you can see everything: the dinner table, the front door, my bed, three walls, my toaster oven (my only oven), my hot plate, and all eight of my guests, smiling and well-fed and a little inebriated. The entirety of my 195-square-foot home fits pretty neatly inside the frame (minus the bathroom, which is out in the hall across from my front door and approximately the size of the lavatory on your last flight in coach).

It's not that I recommend hosting Thanksgiving in a space that's reminiscent of the cabin scene in Night At the Opera. But if the size of your apartment is what's stopping you from gathering your friends, cooking a big meal, and overindulging into the wee hours of the morning, I urge you to reconsider. A Thanksgiving feast in a tiny apartment can be successful if you are confident and unapologetic. And if you pull it off, it'll be one for the books.
