9. Create a space for your cookbooks.
You can store them under a kitchen island shelf.
You can also put your cookbooks in a wire basket like this and place it in the corner of your countertop.
Cookbooks are your best friends in the kitchen so make sure to create a space for them. If you plan to have an open shelf, just make sure they are not exposed to humidity and grease from the stove or the refrigerator.
