This design specialist instructs how try installing hooks or extra shelving to store your kitchen items can be easy and painless. For example, if you have a shelf that keeps your coffee cups and there is a lot of extra space above, then adding hooks to hang more cups will double your storage space. No longer will you have to stack cups and risk breaking them when you reach for your favorite mug.
Install Corner Shelves
