It’s official: You can finally stop trying to hack that awkward space under your kitchen cabinets, because the Japanese company Yamazaki has hacked it for you. By hacked, we mean they’ve designed a super stylish, low-cost storage solution that makes the most of all that unused space in your kitchen, bathroom and closet. Counter space is the most prime real estate in your home, and if you’re dealing with a miniature kitchen, it can be a real lifesaver to get things like paper towels, spice racks and utensils off the counter. If you’re going a little crazy trying to organize your countertops, these small kitchen decor ideas offer ways to squeeze a little extra storage out of the tiniest spaces, while still looking super stylish. Scroll on to see more.


Utilizing the space underneath your cabinets practically doubles your storage options. The Yamazaki Tosca Under Shelf Paper Towel Rack ($18) keeps towels conveniently close but out of the way. The white and wood combo gives these storage options a decidedly Scandinavian vibe, but they’d look just as chic painted copper or bright yellow, if you’re looking for a quick spray paint hack.


Small space living often means everything is out on display, so attractive storage gets extra points. You can pick up the Yamazaki Tosca Under Shelf Storage ($26) on Wayfair and use it for anything + everything from snack storage to cleaning supplies. Hanging utensils doesn’t take away valuable counter space, and it adds a special flair to your storage game.


The most annoying thing in the world is needing a spice that is all the way at the back of the cabinet. Hang them all up on the fridge with the Yamazaki Tosca Magnetic Spice Rack ($30), so you won’t ever have to go digging again. Pick up one or all of these smart kitchen solutions by Yamazaki on, and get ready to nail your storage game.
