Noura El Jerbi: Small Kitchen Ideas: How to Maximize Storage in a Minimal Kitchen

I love a small kitchen. All your tools within easy reach. People packed around convivially chatting as you prep the meal. It positively thrums with life.

But in this most utilitarian of spaces, there's a fine line between cozy and cramped. The trick to maximizing your minimal kitchen's full potential lies in how you take advantage of every available inch of space—without having it all look cluttered. Here's how.

1. Rack it up.


Creating storage in a small kitchen means taking advantage of whatever space is available, no matter how unorthodox. Speciality racks can utilize walls, ceilings, the side of a counter, any vertical surface, freeing up limited cabinet and counter space.

Nails and hooks also do the trick on a smaller scale; use them to hang things from the rafters, under the cabinets, and at the end of a counter. 

2. Nest.

 

Of course plates are stackable, but also consider where you might economize on space with other nesting dishes and utensils. For example, instead of space-hogging stemware (which you'll rarely use), invest in some stemless Spanish wine glasses. Nesting bowls are an obvious choice. And how about stackable cookware, bake sets, and storage containers?

3. Store things in plain sight.

 

The trick is to invest in quality tools—hang them and you have instant utilitarian art.

4. Invest in the classics

 

instead of buying trendy items, invest in classic pieces and tools. Their simple silhouettes and colors keep your kitchen looking clean and organized. And they tend to be multi-use, easily transitioning from kitchen to table, and from every day to formal.

Nuha Dadesh: A Libyan in Libya’s standpoint!

A tragedy? A misery? A perpetual tale of horror? I honestly don't know what I should      call life in Libya! And a desperate cry from my soul apathetically shouts from within, "does it really matter what you should call it?" 
     Because, do I, a Libyan in Libya, really matter to the rest of the world? And that surges feelings of betrayal and envy which build up a hostility for the rest of the world! But, what does that even mean?-"The rest of the world"? Aren't we all the rest of the world to someone? 
     When the revolution was claimed a victory, the supporters were ready to tolerate whatever subsequent consequence. However, humans can only tolerate so much pain and despair before crashing down. People started taking sides. It's not black and white anymore; it's the whole spectrum now!       It's the countless and seemingly never ending misfortunes that we as Libyans, as humans, suffer on an hourly basis that plagued our land with fatigu…

رواد رضوان: أين المفر؟

أحياناً نمر بتلك الايام التي نحتاج فيها للحديث عن "ضيقة الصدر"، وهذه التدوينة عبارة عن "تنفيس" لا أكثر ولا أقل، لا أتوقع أن يقرأها أحد ولا أدعي أن هناك من قد يسيفيد منها، ما هذه إلا فضفضة عن النفس خلال اواخر ساعات العمل الأخيرة من هذا اليوم. 
عزيزي feel free to leave
ضاقت بنا الدنيا فإلى أين المفر..  في بلادنا لا نجد الفرص، نسافر الدنيا بحثاً عنها، فنجدها، ولكن لا نطالها 
لماذا؟؟
لأنك عزيزي في أعينهم خطر.. أي خطر؟ تتسأل... كلانا لا يدري ...  تجد فرصتك ولكن تاتيك الأخبار "عفوا عزيزي لقد تم رفض وجودك هنا"  ..كأنهم يقولون "أنت خطر"  ةلكن بكلمات جميلة 
ما علينا ..
ولكن أين المفر 
إلى بلاد اللا فرص  أم إلى ذل الغربة 
قد لا تفهم المقصود مما ذكرت.... لا تحزن ... فأنت لا تعيش حيث أعيش 

Rawad Radwan: Best of #LibyansAgainstSlavery

A couple of days CNN published an undercover video shows a slave auction in Libya, it was so sad to see this happening in my beautiful country by a group of criminals. I was speechless, I couldn't process what i saw. 

few hours from the release of the video, Libyans on Twitter started #LibyansAgainstSlavery to express their sympathy with the victims of slavery, others expressed their opinions on what we can do to fight this, while other apologized to the world, so here's the best of it:


#LibyansAgainstSlavery
I am Libyan, I work for IOM, me and my colleagues are working hard in daily bases to provide all kind of help & assistance to migrants who are struggling in detention centers all over Libya, the ones who work in slavery trade are the minority here not us. — مـــ ع ـــاذ ⵎⵓⵄⴰⴷ ⵣ (@M_Abouzamazem) November 18, 2017
