Designing the kitchen with sizes of appliances in mind will help you put things to order without wasting an inch. For those of us who has to make the best out of second hand deals, things have to handled in a different manner. In fact we do not get into such problems until we have new appliances which need more storage space. New kitchen cabinets, refrigerators, dish washers an garbage disposal units require some space which raises the issue of utilizing unused areas.

For places where addons do not fit, try fillers and store cutting boards and trays. Is there an unused corner cabinet in your kitchen? Get a Lazy Susan installed and use it to place cutlery and knives or spices.
Making use of dead spaces isn’t that hard after all, but it is best to avoid with careful planning.
