Since Ben installed the oven, we lost some storage space in our galley. Yesterday, I took a much-dreaded trip to Ikea for some space-saving storage ideas. I was actually pleased with what they had to offer. Outfitting a sailboat is trickier than a house because of the constant slant while we're sailing. If things aren't battened down, they go flying around the cabin while underway. Since I don't like to bother with the "battening" part each time we go for a sail, I was adamant about finding organizers that would stay put and not waste precious countertop space. (Sidenote: the only real countertop space we have is actually the top of our icebox so it also needs to be accessible.) I think our new fixtures should work well. I plan on taking another trip to Ikea (gasp!) in the near future to get a couple more items to complete the redesign.
