Haven at Eldridge KitchenIf you live in an apartment, then you are probably looking for ways to make the most of your counter space. Here are some of the best ideas to help increase your countertop space.

#1 Make Your Wall Space More Useful

If your countertop space is in short supply, you can easily free up space and keep kitchen items handy by adding storage to your wall space behind your counter. IKEA sells a variety of kitchen storage systems for walls. Add magnetic strips, hanging bars and shelving to hang items like knives and utensils. This will keep your kitchen items organized and free up space on your countertop.

#2 Use a Movable Kitchen Island or Cart

A moveable kitchen island with a wood top can add style to your kitchen. It can also provide you with some much-needed prep and storage space. Kitchen islands and carts come in a variety of colors and finishes to complement any kitchen. The wood top looks attractive and is functional too. Most have wheels, making them easy to move. You can use the wood top to prep veggies while you cut meat on the countertop. Some kitchen islands and carts come with storage cabinets and shelves so you can store pots, pans and mixing bowls.

#3 Add a Shelf Directly Above Your Faucet

If you are looking for a little extra storage near your kitchen sink, an over-the-faucet self is a great solution. It is a classy and space-saving storage idea. Choose an attractive shelf to place directly over your faucet. You can use it to store and organize your kitchen essentials. An over-the-faucet shelf can house everything from small plants to soap dispensers, which can help maximize the countertop space around your sink.

#4 Don’t Let Good Corners Go to Waste

Corner shelving is a simple solution to a storage problem. It maximizes unused space perfectly. Choose an attractive modular shelf for your corner space. It's best to select one with three or more tiers so that you have plenty of room to stack kitchen items. You can also use a corner shelf to keep serving bowls and plates organized and tidy.
