At certain times in our lives, there are restraints, either in time, resources or space. A small kitchen fits into the restraint of space. Below are ten ways you can make effective use of your kitchen space.
Color: Clean light colours make any space appear bigger so be sure to paint your kitchen is neutral colours like white, pale green or pale blue.
Walls: Your walls are also a part of your storage space. Install hooks on the walls and hang your utensils. Be sure to only hang pots and tools that you use frequently
Ceiling Storage: Go to the ceiling with your storage. Wall cabinets are a great addition to your kitchen but make sure they get to the ceiling. This also means you need to invest in a step ladder. Put the pots and pans you don’t need frequently at the top.
Natural light: If possible have a big window above the sink. The natural light can give the kitchen an added illusion of a big space.
Corners: Use the corners in your kitchen cleverly. What about a cupboard that can open at an angle? Just like in the image above. Smart right?
Under the sink: Store your cleaners and other cleaning materials under the sink.
Magnetic Strip: Why not get a magnetic strip to store your knives? After all, metal attracts metal.
Organization: Organize your utensils by how you use them. Spices and oil can be on a shelf above your sink or even your plates can be above your sink. The way you choose to organize your kitchen goes a long way in making your space look big.
Clean: Don’t leave dirty dishes lying around or in the sink. As soon as you are done eating or cooking wash the dishes
Table: Instead of a table sitting in the middle of your kitchen and occupying space, get a folding table. When not in you can fold and tuck table into a corner. Smart? Right?
