Space Saving Tips For Small Kitchens

Small KitchenDo you struggle in your small kitchen? Do you feel like you run out of counter space whenever you are preparing a meal? We have a few tips that might help you free up some of the counter space in your small kitchen.

Kitchen Windowsill Storage Space

If you have a window in your kitchen, consider using the windowsill as storage space. You may already use that space as an herb garden, but if the windowsill is deep enough, it could also be a space to put glasses, carafes or even pots and other items that tend to clutter up your counters.

Stovetop Storage

You won’t always use your stove while in the kitchen. Just place empty pots on the unused stove. You could also use burner covers and create a work space. Now, you have more room to cut your vegetables or prepare other items.

Kitchen Wall Shelves

Wall shelves are a very simple and efficient way to clear up some counter space. Shelves above your counter space can hold all these frequently uses spices, plates and other pantry items that you usually keep on your counters. Consider open shelving, that way everything you need is visible and in close reach and you still have room to work.

Add A Custom Kitchen Island

You could build a small custom kitchen island. This will fit your space much better than a standard size island. If you make it a rolling island, you will be able to move it out of your way and push it wherever you need it. It does not have to be difficult to make your own island. Just get some butcher block for the counter and some trestle legs.
