Countertop appliances, such as coffeemakers and mixers, are often stored pushed back under cupboards or shelves. In order to use the small appliances, you will need to pull them away from the wall.

Self-adhesive felt pads, like those used to protect floors from furniture scratches, have another handy application as easy sliders for small appliances. To prevent marring the countertop, stick the small felt pads to the bottom of your kitchen appliances to allow you to slide it in or out with ease.
