Unless you designed your kitchen from scratch, with a custom layout and cabinets, it&#039s probably not perfect for your needs. But new cabinets can quickly eat up a small remodeling budget, and re-designing the kitchen isn&#039t usually an option if you rent. I won&#039t even get into the environmental impact of trashing old cabinets and producing new ones. Fortunately there are a lot of clever DIY ways to make the most of your current kitchen cabinets.
Last summer my husband and I gave our kitchen a makeover (see the entire Before &amp After project on my blog). Our 100-year-old house came with cabinets from the &#03960s or &#03970s that we didn&#039t want to replace. They looked completely different after we painted over the dark, streaky stain and replaced cheap-looking hardware, but it&#039s the behind-the-doors upgrades that have made the biggest functional difference. We were able to do all of them ourselves, and it&#039s amazing how much more we like using our kitchen now. So here are some useful kitchen hacks that I can recommend. Many of them are even renter-friendly, and could easily be removed and transferred to a new kitchen. So let us take a look at best under cabinet draw kitchen storage with 20 pictures below.

There was no good spot for our garbage and recycling in our kitchen when we moved in. There wasn&#039t really room under the sink, and there wasn&#039t a spot for freestanding bins that wasn&#039t in the way of other stuff. So we decided to install pull-out bins in a cabinet, and they were the perfect solution. They keep our garbage and recycling easy to access, but out of the way. A tiny tip: If you have an extra inch or two, put a container of baking soda near the wall behind the bins to absorb odors.
