Space-Saving Tips for Your Small Kitchen

Small kitchens can be frustrating. You feel like you have no room to prepare food, and pots and pans end up simply scattered across the worktops because of a lack of storage. It can make you hate spending time in your kitchen. But it doesn’t have to be this way. You simply need to make better use of the space so that your kitchen feels bigger and more comfortable.

  • Scale back your belongings – If you have a small kitchen, one of the easiest ways to make it feel larger is to declutter. You should get rid of anything you don’t need. Strive to keep the space tidy and clean, and remove any bulky accessories you have placed on the counters. This will go a long way.
  • Build cabinets up to the ceiling - For kitchens with top cupboards, you will have much more storage space and a stunning, seamless look if they go all the way up to the ceiling. Otherwise, you are simply wasting valuable storage space. You can also make the most of the space by choosing doors that pivot and open vertically.
  • Open narrow spaces with a pull out pantry – You don’t simply have to waste narrow pockets of space in your kitchen. You can have access to an abundance of extra storage space if you take advantage of pull out larder shelving.
  • Have hanging wall storage – Overbearing top cupboards everywhere can drown all space in a small kitchen. This is why it is a good idea to consider semi-industrial, stylish hanging racks, which look amazing and offer a huge amount of practicality as well.
  • Choose an under-mounted sink Kitchen sink selection is important when it comes to using space effectively. A sink that mounts under your counter is one of the best ways to claw back as much work surface as possible. You may think it’s not really worth it. After all, you’re only going to save around a few inches. However, every millimetre counts in a small kitchen, and it really does help when it comes to food preparation.
  • Select small yet powerful appliances – It’s always a good idea to select smaller versions of the appliances you require for your kitchen. However, this does not mean that you should sacrifice power. You may need to spend more for a small oven that is high functioning, but it will definitely be worth it in the long-term. You will benefit from much more space without your kitchen’s functionality suffering as a consequence. Of course, built-in options always work well.
  • Choose minimalist hardware – Bulky handles and knobs are only going to make your kitchen feel more cramped. Choose minimalist and slender pulls instead.
  • Remove your kitchen door – Last but not least, one of the best ways to make a small room feel bigger is to remove the door. Or, why not have a wall removed or the opening widened? This will make an even bigger difference. Having extra space to move around will make your kitchen more comfortable, especially if there is more than one cook in the household.
