Help me maximize my wall space without having to drill...
I've recently moved into a tiny studio in Hong Kong that has a really narrow kitchen
. The kitchen measures just under 3 feet across. There's currently not enough space for me to keep my dishes! The drying rack is overflowing and I usually need to put even clean dishes in the sink and some pots on the stove so I have space everywhere.
I also bought this Bygel Rail
, this wire basket
, plus hooks
with the intention of putting stuff on the walls of my kitchen.
I plan on buying more wall mounted things in the near future to organize my kitchen too. My spice rack
is a window ledge and I'd like to put that somewhere safer too.
However, the issue is this: I have sort of a weird renting situation (company is paying for housing--checked with them and they were fine with me drilling, but they're not technically the owner of the apartment) and I'm really reluctant to drill into the tile. My experience with a drill is putting up this wall shelf
into a concrete wall, and I'm really afraid it's going to come crashing down any second now since I couldn't get one of the anchors to properly anchor (drill slipped so super big hole but not big enough anchor). I'm not even sure if I was supposed to have drilled into my wall, but if the landlord does find out and care, I'll just have the wall filled in and touched up with paint. Cracked tiles are much harder to fix!
Are there any alternatives I can use besides drilling holes into the kitchen? Would some sort of 3M mounting tape work? I'm afraid that my apartment gets too hot and humid when I'm not around that the tape will cause the entire railing fall rather quickly. I've considered gluing section cups onto the the rail, but I doubt it'll hold the weight I need it to hold. I have a suction cup rail in my bathroom to hold my towel and that still falls down every so often, but towel is not breakable so it's fine.
I'm also open for any general small space organization tips!
