Not having enough kitchen space is a big complaint within many households. The small area is where most movement needs to take place. It doesn’t help that the necessary appliances such as the fridge, freezer, cooker, and washing machine are big and bulky; reducing what little space you do have even more. Well that’s about to change. These space saving designs and clever ways to utilise the space you do have could transform your kitchen:
Use the Walls
Storage space can be a nightmare if you haven’t got enough of it. Utilising the wall space can free up the draws, so you can use them for other things. Magnetic wall racks are great for storing large knives that are a struggle to get into the draws. It also prevents smaller children managing to reach in and grab one.
Hang From the Ceiling
Hanging racks for pots and pans can save some of that all-important cupboard space that you may need. This can make your kitchen look quirky and fun, as well as providing easy access.
Corner Cupboards & Pull Out Cabinets
These are great for storing items you don’t use as much. The corner of the unit is often wasted, but by using a clever design the area can be utilised effectively. Pull out cabinets are great for condiment storage. The easy mechanism means things can be placed behind one another, whilst still giving you easy access.
Having a strategic order of how items can be placed in the kitchen is essential if you want to fit everything in. Investing in things like nesting bowls and pans, as well as stacking items on top of each other such as tins and other foodstuffs can utilise the space available.
Keep it Tidy
Any area will always look much bigger if it is kept tidy, clutter and mess creates a cramped atmosphere and makes the room look smaller. Placing things on the counters is ok as long as you have at least one area that is clear for food preparation. Remember the more open space you have, the bigger the area will look, so try to keep clutter to a minimum.
Light colours can open up a room and create a more spacious environment. It reflects the light better so that the room looks bright and airy. Darker colours can make your kitchen look closed off and confined so ensure you stay away from these.
