More kitchen storage is something that we've probably all wished for one time or another. This is especially true if your home has a small countertop where space is at a premium (or if you just like to have your countertop as uncluttered as possible). We love the idea of using blank wall space to create a vertical organization system in a kitchen, so we decided to make our own to keep our new studio kitchen neat and tidy. Supplies:
-3 24" towel bars (we used this one)
-Bamboo utensil holders (similar ones here and here)
-Metal shower curtain rings
Step One: Follow the manufacturer's instructions to attach the towel bars to the wall. (If your towel bar doesn't already come with one, you'll want to use a wall anchor when installing the towel bars so they can hold a fair amount of weight.) Make sure to space the bars so that there will be about 6" of space between the bottom of your utensil holder and the next bar below it.
Step Two: Use a power drill and drill a hole about 1 1/2" from the top of each of your utensil holders.Step Three: Open your shower curtain ring, slide one end through the hole and the other end over the towel bar, and snap the ring closed.
Step Four: Fill your utensil holders with whatever kitchen items you like. If you decide to put flowers or a plant in one of your holders, make sure to line the container with either a pot, vase, or even a plastic bag first for leak protection and easy clean-up.We are pretty over-the-moon with how this vertical storage turned out—we love it! All the items are easily accessible but contained and out of the way. Think you're up for making your own kitchen storage wall? xo. Laura
