Small kitchens with limited space or with sloping ceilings may not fit the traditional cooking of several wall-mounted cabinets and a row of cabinets beneath the counter. However, having a small kitchen does not stop you have optimal storage options. Rather, you have several options to choose one or more that suit your kitchen for optimum storage of your limited space.

Standard Kitchen Cabinets

The smaller kitchens can only provide enough space for you to have two or three standard cabinets on the floor under your desk. The standard kitchen cabinets are commonly 34 1/2 inches (86 cm) high and 24 inches (61 cm) deep. The overall width varies, as some have a single door and others have double doors. If you have a desk with ample space below, install a few basic kitchen cabinets with shelves for storage.

Upper cabinets

The top cabinets are the same size base cabinets, but are mounted on the wall to create more space on the floor. The upper cabinets are common in kitchens and are often hung on a kitchen space. These types of cabinets are 24 inches (61 cm) deep and often provide two or three shelves for storage. One or two of these cabinets can provide shelves for plates, cups, bowls, pots and pans.

Corner Cabinets

If you have very little space under your desk and do not have wall space due to a sloping ceiling, invest in a unit that goes in the corner, along a wall. Corner cabinets do not occupy much space on the wall or floor, as they use the space in the corner. This type of shelving cabinets provide options that may or may not be covered by a door. The most modern corner units can use glass doors to conceal partially the content.

Elongated Cabinets

The small upper cabinets are standard size cabinets mounted on the wall. However, if you do not have much wall space in terms of height, use smaller cabinets that are about 28 inches (71 cm) deep and just 15 inches (38 cm) tall. Instead of laying them on top of the other, creating an elongated cabinets that extend over your counter, which gives the length of your small kitchen storage and presents options.

Cabinets for basement storage?

I need storage cabinets (72"x36") for my unfinished basement which is a bit damp. Any recommendations? Everything on the market seems wrong for this purpose:
- All the plastic cabinets I've seen (Rubbermaid, Suncast, etc.) have very mixed reviews online, with people calling them flimsy, unreliable, etc. I used to have the Stanley plastic ones from Home Depot and they were junk.
- Metal cabinets might work (raised up on bricks or pressure-treated wood), but nobody in Boston actually STOCKS these $300-500+ cabinets (that I have found) so I can see one before buying

What to look for in an apartment

For grammargeek and the other tenants looking (or soon to be) ....
First, safety ...
Deadbolt locks
Window locks
Smoke detectors (outside kitchen and every bedroom at a minimum) - hardwired is better.
GFCI outlets near water
Fire extinguisher on every floor
railings for all stairs
lighting in common areas
How's the storage?
Look *inside* the kitchen cabinets, can they be made sanitary?
Turn that shower on, sink too.
How's the water pressure? Does it get hot? (some may have water heater off between tenants but check)
Outlets? Enough? Located in normal places? Ancient?
Lights? Are there overhead lights? Swiched outlets for lamps?
If you will be paying the utilities (and sometimes even if not)
