Aha! Design: Clever Built-in Storage for Cutting Boards

Where there’s thunder, there’s lightning; and where there’s a small space, there’s an ingenious storage solution. We always make sure to scan for surprising hacks and ingenious designs when we come across a small-space home tour and rarely come away disappointed. So when we saw Margot’s Remodelista post about a 180-square-foot Catskills house (see The New Nordic A-Frame: A Flat-Pack Tiny House by BIG), we went hunting for ideas—and were rewarded with this smart design: slots, built into a kitchen shelf, for sliding in cutting boards (just like the storage racks for wooden puzzles). Not only do the slots provide a neat way to store the boards, but they also allow the boards to properly air-dry after being washed.
