  • The article will be especially useful for those who rent an apartment and cannot drill the walls, as well as for those who are sorely lacking storage space..

1. We store the lids from pots on the doors of kitchen cabinets

Covers from saucepans, although not very large in size, always take up a lot of space in cabinets, they always disappear somewhere. Solution? Store them on your kitchen cabinet doors! This is convenient and, moreover, reasonable if the kitchen is small. The main thing is to remember the place of each cover..

Instructions: Just attach the cover to the door and glue the hooks at two points – at about 4 and 8 o’clock if you imagine the cover as a dial. But there are a couple of nuances: the lids must fit between the shelves and the contents of the cabinet must not interfere with them, otherwise the door will not close. One standard door will fit about 2-4 lids of different diameters.

Some more helpful tips

  • Better to buy hooks that will peel off the wall without leaving any marks. This is especially important if you live in a rented apartment..
  • For storing heavy items, such as pans, only hooks that can withstand heavy loads are suitable (weight recommendations are indicated on the package).
  • Care should be taken when building entire wall storage systems. Remember that anything stored openly will become dusty and visually clutter up the space. However, on the doors and inner walls of the cabinets, the hooks can be used without any limit..
  • The best self-adhesive hooks are produced by the well-known Command company (sold in household and building markets, stationery stores, as well as at Ozone). They are good because they can be easily removed without traces, but at the same time they are very firmly attached to the wall. Depending on your idea, you can choose small or large hooks, plastic or metal, transparent or colored, hooks for heavy or very heavy things, as well as hooks for wet rooms.
