While it’s not a particularly interesting part in imagining your dream house, storage is a very important factor in home design. The problem is homeowners often don’t anticipate how much storage they actually need. Whether the home is big or small, this complication can crop up in any room of the residence. After all, the amount of personal belongings one owns just accumulate endlessly over the years.

You might not be able to expand the kitchen area, but with some smarts and creativity you might be able to create storage out of seemingly nothing.

With handy design hacks, you might be able to fit everything you need in the kitchen. Here are 22 ingenious solutions to improve kitchen storage.
