Where to store the kitchen ladder

Unless you're unusually tall, there will be kitchen storage areas that are out of reach. If you're short like me, lots of things are out of reach! That's when the kitchen ladder or step stool comes in handy.

Where to store it when it's not in use, though? It's an awkward kind of shape. Here are some ideas:

  • A slim ladder can fit in a narrow slot beside the fridge. Mine needs about 1.5" of space.
  • Some cabinet lines include ladders especially made to fit in their toe kick drawers - for a price. If you search around you can find very small ladders which will fit just as well.
  • If you have a pantry or room door with space behind it, a ladder can hang on the back of the door.
  • Some step stools are designed as quite handsome stools, and can stay out in the kitchen all the time.
  • A folding step stool may fit in a cabinet or toe kick drawer, or hang on the back of a door.
