Take Advantage Of Every Available Square Inch When Remodeling Your Compact Kitchen

Blog

If you have a home with a smaller sized kitchen, you may believe your only option is to deal with the limited square footage and make adjustments to your cooking habits or reduce entertaining friends and family in the kitchen. While there may not be much you can do to add space to the kitchen without extensive construction work, there are a number of other projects you can tackle while remodeling to make your kitchen much more efficient.

Get a Sliding Drawer with Compartments for Utensils

Larger sized utensils, such as spatulas, whisks, and soup ladles, can take up a lot of space if they are simply stuffed into a random drawer or left on the counter in a container. Instead of thinking that you need to get rid of some of your most-used utensils to stay organized, consider getting a sliding drawer that has built-in compartments so that everything stays neat.

Keep Spices Out of the Cabinets with a Space-Saving Alternative

Your spices can quickly get out of hand if they are left tossed in a drawer or cabinet, leading to you making a mess every time that you need to reach a specific spice. An easy alternative is mounting them to the wall either through a wall rack or with a magnetic board.

Consider Getting a Pull-Out Cutting Board Installed

Cutting boards can take up a lot of space when stacked inside a cabinet, making it a good idea to get a pull-out cutting board installed instead. By installing a cutting board into a kitchen island or with the rest of your cabinets, you can have a cutting board that is easy to hide and remove when desired.

Keep the Trash and Recycling Cans Hidden in a Cabinet

With limited floor space in your kitchen, it can be frustrating to find an available space for the trash can and recycling bins. Instead of leaving them out, consider shorter sizes that can fit with ease inside a cabinet.

Change the Corner Drawers Out for Better Use

Many people miss out on a lot of extra storage space by choosing corner kitchen cabinets that are difficult to reach the back of. By getting corner cabinets installed with a Lazy Susan tray built right in, you can have the extra storage space you want.

Remodeling your kitchen in the most efficient manner can make a big difference in how open your kitchen feels and the ease of organizing after the project is finished. With the above tips in mind, you will be able to make great improvements to the kitchen without any issues.
