July 26, 2016

Without a rail, pegboard, hooks, and shelving, a small kitchen is hard to keep organized. We’re taking cues from this Swedish kitchen that’s custom fit with a storage rail, deep drawers, and restaurant cart. Here, we’ve listed all the key elements and storage tricks to adopt at home.
