Plates — especially if you have them in a range of sizes — can be one of the more curiously difficult things to store in the kitchen. Plate racks tend be bulky while rarely seeming to fit enough and stacking dishes is a short road to accidents and damaging your beautiful dishware. When I ran into this low-profile wood version from WhiteRiverWoodworks on Etsy, I knew it was a game-changer. Hand crafted from maple wood, the rack has a hue that matches a vast majority of wood cabinet interior finishes and a height of only 3/4 if an inch, so it blends right in.

While nearly invisible, this rack can hold up to 16 plates vertically which is not only far more than the average cabinet plate rack, but it makes the dishes both easy to grab and replace (without harming the dishes either). Of course, that’s if you go with the default size, which you totally don’t have to. WhiteRiverWoodworks will cut your wooden plate rack to a custom length without any extra charge. So, you can choose to match your rack to your cabinet’s exact measurements or even customize your dish display.

“Wow,” said one recent customer. WhiteRiverWoodworks‘s owner “Gary made my order exactly to fit my cabinet and now it is one of my favorite pieces in my kitchen. I show everyone who comes over. I’m so happy I get to keep my large plates now, and they look so nice sitting upright in my cabinet. Such a clean look with the sleek wooden rack…thank you, Gary — great craftsmanship!”

And because the racks are made in Kansas City, MO, shipping is fast no matter where you’re located, and the brand offers free returns for 30 days after your rack is delivered. I don’t know about you, but my first impression overall is brilliance all around. Go, Gary.

If we’re honest, we just can’t help ourselves when it comes to storage solutions. And because we’re always on the lookout for ways to maximize our time, money, and space in the home, we’ve found some seriously game-changing organizing essentials. From space-savers in the fridge to easy-to-install items, if you’re looking to streamline the look of your space, we’ve got you covered. One of the brands we turn to time and time again for the best stylish storage solutions? Yamazki Home. The brand’s space-saving, problem-solving finds have graced our cooking spaces, pantries, and even bathrooms — we love their sleek, modern style that makes staying tidy incredibly chic.

The latest Yamazaki find we need in our kitchens immediately? This pretty Stackable Countertop Shelf that instantly creates more storage space — sans tools or drilling. Its low-profile (ideal for inside cabinets) and stacking design make it endlessly versatile. And at under $35, its space-making powers are well worth the investment. And just like all Yamazaki products, you can’t beat the high-quality features and materials.

The solid combination of wood and steel could easily support a pyramid of drinking glasses (or mason jars, if that’s your sipping style) or you can stack two together to create an organized spice display that you’ll want to show off. It can hold up to 8.8 pounds and could also easily store small bowls, liquid measuring cups, cans of chickpeas, bags of pasta — the list goes on. Whatever is cluttering up your kitchen cabinets can now be showcased on this game-changing Yamazaki accessory.

And while the Stackable Countertop Shelf is perfect for kitchens, it’ll also do wonders in your home office or bathroom. The neutral Ash wood and clean lines would work in any room — better yet, it’s pretty enough to not hide away.
