Small kitchens often look cluttered, messy, and are not easy to work in.
By managing the space properly, you can make even a small kitchen organized, functional, and also aesthetically appealing. If your kitchen is disorganized and lacks functionality, then it is high time you plan a remodeling project for it. It is not necessary to spend thousands of dollars on creating space in your small kitchen. Even small modifications can go a long way in making your kitchen look bigger and organized.
Clear Clutter Out of the Kitchen
If you have a small kitchen, then it is highly likely that there is a lot of clutter in there. So, start by de-cluttering the area. Make sure the cabinets are free of items that you do not need because they occupy unnecessary space in the kitchen. Keep the working area free of any unnecessary items.
Get Rid of Extra Items
There are many items in the kitchen that are used occasionally. Identify these items, and look for an alternative place to store these items. If you use your pasta maker only once in a while consider putting it away in the garage.
Use of efficient cabinetry can increase the storage space in your kitchen to a great extent and can help store items in an organized manner. Rotating cabinets make a great choice if you are looking for convenience and better storage space. They are a better alternative to deep drawers, as there are no blind corners or hard to access areas.
By using organizers inside drawers, you can do wonders for space efficiency. Items can be stored in a much more organized manner, and they will be easy to find and access when you need them.
Buy Appliances That Are Specifically Designed for Small Kitchens
Bigger is not necessarily better when it comes to kitchen appliances, especially when space is limited. So, buy appliances that are made for small kitchens.
Use Colors and Lighting Smartly
Colors and lighting can play a very crucial role in making your kitchen look bigger. Use colors such as cream, off-white, or sunny yellow, and use bright lights placed at appropriate angles. Let in natural light through the windows.
Rather than organizing the storage horizontally, do it vertically. This will create more space in your small kitchen. Consider hanging your pots and pans from racks on walls or ceilings. This not only looks stylish but saves a lot of space as well.
