How to Make the Most of a Small Kitchen
The kitchen may be considered the hub of your home, but it can often be one of the smallest rooms in the house. In this blog we will discuss how you can make the most of your limited kitchen!
Utilise Wall Space
Wall space can often be overlooked with the exception of kitchen units. Did you know there are plenty of unique ideas to help utilise your wall space… Reduce clutter from your cabinets by investing in a pan hanger, not only will it free up some space but it also means you can access your pans quicker. Why not invest in a magnetic knife block to keep your knives not only save but your worktops tidy. Don’t forget corner shelves are very handy and add a unique touch to your kitchen.
Only Store What You Use
With storage space limited try not to horde what you don’t use. For instance, if you have a table set that is used once in a blue moon, either get rid of it or look for alternative storage area. Have a wide selection of pans but only use 3? Take into consideration space and if you really need them. The same applies for food packages, if you have a range of cereals that are taking up space why not put them in different containers like jars, they will not only keep your food fresh but clear up space in the long run.
Avoid a Large Dining Area
If your kitchen has to accommodate your dining area you must think about the best layout to suit everyone. Sometimes a full dining table might not be the best option, instead think about a breakfast bar. Simply set up some stools around your extended kitchen work top and there you have a perfect table for the whole family! Plus, it also gives you extra space for food preparation and the perfect hub for a kitchen party.
