Your kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the home, and for some homeowners, it feels like you never have enough space to work with. If you’re one of the many homeowners who are interested in learning how to maximize the kitchen they have, check out our blog for a few tips on how to maximize an undersized kitchen.
Use Drawers As Much As Possible
One of the best tips we can give to homeowners trying to maximize a small kitchen is to use drawers instead of cabinets. With cabinets, you’ll need to rummage through your belongings to find what you’re looking for, knocking over pots & pans and making a mess of the cabinets. When you use drawers, you can easily organize everything without needing to throw other possessions out of the way to reach what you’re looking for. While there are certainly times where you will need to use drawers, particularly above your countertops, but generally drawers are the better option for an undersized kitchen.
Install A Breakfast Bar
If you don’t have room for a dining table, another create space saving hack is to add a breakfast bar with stool seating. This won’t take up much space in the kitchen, and will also allow you to eliminate the need for a dining table, with the exception of when you plan to have a lot of company over.
Opt For Smaller Appliances
When you can, avoid using larger appliances where you can. Using small microwaves, ranges, or even coffeemakers, can help save valuable countertop space for food prep and other important tasks. If you’re looking to take advantage of the space you have, using smaller appliances can provide you with more!
Get Natural Lighting Into Your Kitchen
While having the right lighting won’t make your kitchen any larger, it will help the space feel more expansive. While making sure the kitchen is generally well-lit is important, it’s better to focus on maximizing the amount of natural lighting in the kitchen, as this will help the space feel larger than artificial lighting will.
