While we all dream of having a modern and spacious kitchen, in the majority of cases we just have to make do with what we have. The good news is that there are always ways of maximising the space available in your kitchen, even if it happens to be on the small side. In fact, having a small kitchen means you can implement a number of innovative storage and space saving solutions to make the most of what you have, so take a look at some of them.
Have you stopped to think just how much space your microwave and cooker hood take up? Is your freezer unit always in your way? Then why not consider having these features built into your kitchen furniture? With some planning, you can get coffee makers, drink dispensers and even whole ovens built into walls or cabinets, and how about a built-in spice rack cabinet or a corner drawer?
Unless you have a large family or a significant amount of space, chances are that you don’t need a full-size fridge, a four-ring stove or a large-capacity dishwasher. Instead, opt for downsizing your kitchen appliances or choose compact models of all the essential kitchen appliances.
Use hooks and shelves on walls
Built-in shelves and strategically placed hooks can work wonders in terms of space, so replace your knife blocks with wall-mounted units for best results. An interesting alternative is having a pot rack fitted as this will free up space on the kitchen counters and cabinets while adding a beautiful touch of style to your kitchen. The great thing about pot racks is that there are so many options available that you’re guaranteed to find the one that matches the decorative style of your kitchen.
Reconfigure the layout
Maximising the space available in your kitchen might take a bit of innovative thinking. Can the kitchen’s layout be modified in any way? Think about modifications like fitting stacked kitchen cabinets or replacing a kitchen island with a counter that sticks out slightly from the walls. Even small changes can make a big difference, so consider things like moving the sink to a corner or replacing the dining table and chairs with a folding or extending model.
