1. Try an Étagère for Added Height. An open shelving unit adds more storage, but doesn't take up too much floor–or visual–space. An antique étagère placed on the counter of Mary Jo Bochner'sSavannah, Georgia, kitchenholds books and bowls.

2. Get Creative with Cabinets. Inspired by a vintage printer's desk, Monica Bhargava had the cabinets in her California kitchen made to look like drawers.

3. Try a Pull-Out Pantry. In designer Stephanie Stokes's 48-square-foot New York City kitchen, the 'pantry' for dry goods consists of two cabinets that slide out over the countertop so that everything is easy to find.

4. Save Floor Space with Swivel Stools. In Dan Doyle's St. Helena, California, kitchen, vintage swivel stools are playful and practical.
