A rare housewife is content with cooking salt and pepper. Usually, a set of spices and herbs, even in the arsenal of amateur culinary, has not less than a dozen units, but what about those who appreciated the delicate taste of various herbs-ant and buy more and more cherished jars. Then one day all this wealth ceases to fit in a stand or rack for spices, and then the question arises - how to place the spices, so that it was convenient and they did not take up much space? There are several options for storing spices that can be useful for kitchens of different sizes.
In sliding vertical boxes
In any kitchen there is a narrow space that is not suitable for storing dishes or pans, but for small containers with spices, it will be just in time. This may be the space between the stove and the nightstand, the refrigerator and the wall, the sink and the dishwasher. A narrow vertical drawer on wheels with shelves for seasonings and a convenient handle will be an ideal option for using unused space.
In flasks and test tubes
An unusual solution for storing spices in flasks will appeal to lovers of original ideas. This composition looks very unusual, and takes up little space. Glass laboratory test tubes, cigar flasks, or small narrow vases can be adapted to this idea. And you can close the container with wine plugs, which are cut to the desired diameter. Well, you can arrange the flasks in the tableware stand, a beautiful box, a wooden stand or on a narrow shelf with holes.
When there is no space at all on the working surfaces, one has to resort to tricks, and one of them is to hang small jars up to the bottom of the cabinets. To do this, the lids of containers are screwed or glued to the surface of the cabinets, and the spice jars are screwed into securely attached covers. It is better to have jars in a single line or in a staggered manner so that their contents or labels can be seen.
In separate racks and cabinets
If there is a lot of seasoning, then you can’t do without a special locker or rack. It is usually made of small depth, so you can place such a piece of furniture near the window, at the doorway or on the wall above the kitchen table. You can divide the locker space into cells to fit the size of the jars or make narrow shelves and put your treasures there.
On a metal tray
Very helpful in the storage of spices magnets. If they are attached to the lids of the cans, it will be possible to store containers on any metal surface. This may be a refrigerator or a metal cabinet door, but a graceful tray placed vertically, to which small jars of spices are attached in a certain order, looks much more original. First, such a composition can be placed in any convenient place, and secondly, the tray can always be used for its intended purpose, removing from it the jars with spices.
On the doors of cabinets or on the doors
If you have a pantry or a deep cupboard in your kitchen, the god of cooking himself ordered narrow shelves with condiment banks on their doors. If you do not want to mess with the shelves, you can always think of fabric pockets or hang metal shelves on the doors, which are sold in plumbing departments. This idea can also be taken into account when ordering kitchen furniture, asking the master to make one of the bedside tables with a reduced depth of the shelves.
In horizontal flat boxes
One of the most common storage options for miniature containers with spices is sliding horizontal drawers. This is the case when you can use space of non-standard sizes - for example, under or above the oven or at the base of the table. Small in height boxes will be quite enough, since the jars in this case, as a rule, are placed horizontally.
On the side surfaces of the lockers
Another not quite familiar way of placing spices is on the side walls of cabinets and cabinets. It is especially relevant for corner kitchen furniture. To carry out this method of storage can be different. With the help of narrow shelves, magnets and metal sheets (or strips as an option). You can make pockets of dense material, hang jars on hooks, fasten lids to the surface of the cabinet and screw in jars, etc.
As you can see, the storage options for spices are sufficient. Just take a look at your kitchen and you will surely notice the right place.
