Pots and pans tend to take up a lot of space. Keep the one you frequently used at the kitchen work area and stow away the rest.

For your plates, bowls, baking trays and containers

Stack bowls and containers of the same size to save storage space. Similarly, place smaller bowls/containers in bigger bowls/containers. In addition, you can put a small double shelf in your cabinet to store your plates. Keep small plates above and big plates at the bottom. This will keep them organised and easy to grab. Use the same concept when it comes to storing bowls. Otherwise, organise using vertical shelf dividers.
