Replace Your Cabinet Kickplate With Drawers To Increase Storage Space

Live in an extremely small house or apartment and looking to increase your storage space? Tiny house dweller Tammy Strobel developed several innovative “hidden in plain sight” storage areas for her 12sqm home, including small drawers under her kitchen cabinets where most people normally just install a kickplate.

The drawers don’t store an incredible amount; maybe two reams of paper side-by-side. In their tiny home it serves as an electronics cord and hardware “junk” drawer. Little storage areas like this not only increase the total storage capacity, but they also keep clutter down — an especially important consideration in a tiny house.

No instructions are posted on Tammy’s weblog Rowdy Kittens, but just about any standard kitchen cabinet drawer instructions should work that don’t require extra height for the drawer hardware. This DIY project is definitely not for everyone, but if you live in a studio apartment or a tiny house, it might be up your alley.
