6 Ways to Make the Most of Your Small Kitchen
Use stackable containers and cups – chances are your cabinets are full of containers, cups, and other items. Purchase items that are stackable to help you save space.
Invest in an island with storage – Islands are a great place to not only prep food but to also store your kitchen utensils! Choose an island with plenty of storage to hold items.
Hang mugs and more – Many of your typical hardware and home décor stores have hanging devices that make it easy to hang mugs, pots, pans, spoons, and more! Take advantage of your wall space and hang items to keep them out of your cupboards.
Store outside of your kitchen – Do you have plates and platters that are only brought out for holidays and special events? Store these items in closets, basements, or attics.
Store high – Do you have room above your cabinets? Install shelving above your cabinets to store items you do not need every day. This can be large platters, matching dishware, and more!
Install a pantry – Many pantries are built into the home; however, if you don’t have that option there are several ways to install a pantry. One easy way is to use large cabinets—similar to a wardrobe. This will allow you to store food and spices in places other than your kitchen cabinets.
