  1. Wonderful tips! Love the towel bar to organize pot lids and tension rods as dividers for trays and cookie sheets, and to hang spray bottles from! Thanks for these terrific ideas! Now I'm eager to tackle my kitchen! Linda

  2. The doors of cabinets are one good area to take advantage of when maximizing storage. They are usually under utilized anyway, so why not make use of every inch of those space. However, when taking up this project, always ensure that the weight of the objects that you wish to hang on the cabinet doors can be well supported by the hinges, else everything can collapse anytime.
