Having enough storage space is essential in the kitchen, but the traditional option of cabinets can be costly. If you identify with this problem and want to save money while setting up your house, then we have the perfect solution for you. Below are eight storage options that not only cost little but can also give a different style to your kitchen.

1. Wooden shelves

The first option is of wooden shelves. By merely putting wooden planks on the wall you can turn the space into a storage place. You can use it to store utensils and groceries.

2. Shelves instead of cupboards

Another way to use wood in your kitchen is by completely replacing the old cabinets with shelves. It may seem a little radical but is ideal for cottages or for those who want to give a different touch in the kitchen decoration.

3. Metal grille

A modern option that is also quite economical is this metal grille. By installing it on the wall, you can hang pots and cutlery on it and give your kitchen a stripped-down look.

4. Metal rods or hooks

To replace the grid shown above in a traditional way, you can install metal bars on the wall instead. It can be used for the same purpose which is to hang the pots and other kitchen utensils.

5. Niches

Niches made out of wood or any other material are an option that lies between the shelves and cabinets. It is quite common to decorate the kitchen using similar structures.

6. Container pallets

Pallets are already a reasonably popular option to use in the design of the home. In the case of a kitchen, crates can be used in full as a storage space.  They can be installed under the sink, especially if you do not want to see the utensils on display.

7. Reused timber

If you do not want to give up cabinets altogether, then the tip is to look for alternatives in the material from which it is built to save money. Reused wood meets this requirement and can still give a super stylish look to the furniture.

8. Old cabinets

To promote a rustic style differently in your kitchen you can renovate old cabinets, even if they were not initially made for the kitchen. You can paint it so that it looks unique and complements the decor.
