The kitchen is one of the busiest rooms in your home, making it one of the most cramped, too. If you have a small kitchen, it’s even more important to keep the limited space as roomy as you can.
Marrokal Design and Remodeling, your experienced local kitchen contractor, discusses how to do this using a few ingenious tips.
The space underneath your baskets is surprisingly spacious, and it’s a waste not to make use of it. If you want to maximize your countertop space, we recommend getting undershelf baskets. They can store everything from assorted utensils to cookware that you can’t fit anywhere else anymore.
Before you do any kind of room addition to expand your tiny kitchen space, optimize the existing storage options you have. Cabinets are surprisingly spacious and can fit more than what you think. To get the most out of this storage space, we recommend adding stackable shelves in them. This multiplies their storage capacity by storing vertically.
If your kitchen is lacking in drawer space, adding a magnetic strip to hang your other cookware can do the trick. Ideally, you’ll want to place the larger utensils here, such as knives. Apart from being easier to store, it’s also safer since you can see where the pointy end is.
Get Rid of the Unnecessary
Finally, make sure to get rid of any unnecessary knickknacks or items in your kitchen. A lot of them will eventually find their way into the kitchen, which can only clog your space even more. Take some time to do a full cleanup of your kitchen before anything else.
