Place A Cutting Board On An Open Kitchen Drawer To Instantly Add Counter Space

If you run out of counter space while cooking, you can quickly add a little space by taking a cutting board, pulling open a kitchen drawer, and putting the cutting board on top of the drawer. It's not perfect and it comes with some caveats, but if you're in a pinch and need somewhere to set down a bowl or plate while you grab something else, it gives you a little more space.

The CHOW video above shows you how it works and rightfully suggests you stabilise the cutting board with a dish or kitchen towel so it doesn't move around too much. We wouldn't suggest using the space for cutting or slicing since it'll definitely be lower than the counter and it's a bit of a navigation hazard (it makes the space on the counter in front of it harder to reach, and if you have a galley or small kitchen, it'll be tough to slide around if you need to get to the other side,) but extra space is extra space, especially when you need it or have a tiny kitchen.

    I have a tiny office with a tinier desk. I do this same thing when I want to use my desktop pc and my laptop at the same time. Back to the kitchen, an ironing board makes for a handy emergency bench too.
