I have a tiny condo kitchen but a lot of kitchen equipment.
Three Sauder storage cabinets line one whole wall of my dining room and really don't take up much space at all. They hold my crock pot, dehydrator, baking pans, sous vide equipment, cookbooks (many!), homemade canned soup, etc.
One cabinet also holds house cleaning supplies and small tools.
My dining table is an antique drop-leaf table (seats 2 when partially opened; 4-6 when fully opened) with one side always in service for daily use. For company or a large project I can always open the other side.
I also have a 2' x 4' folding table which is stored under my sofa. When I have a special cooking project I can set it up in the dining room.
MillionsKnives, I had three of the wire shelving units (on wheels) in the spare bedroom of my previous condo. Sure wish I still had room for them now.
