5 kitchen storage ideas that'll make your life easier.

Kitchens in HDB flats are known to be tight and narrow and the general complaint is that you'll never have enough for storage. However, what if we rethink the way we use our kitchen for storage? The following five ideas are simple and easy solutions to maximising space in your small kitchen. 

1) Mount the dish drying rack directly above the sink to free up worktop space.
