No matter how small your kitchen is, you can always find wise ways to make more space.
From expanding your calculator space, to using overlooked storage capabilities, you can extend the benefits of your kitchen without renovation. Here are six simple ideas.
Make more disk space
If you need an extra flat surface when cooking, look no further than your kitchen drawers. Open the top box and place a cutting board over it for an extra surface in a pinch.
If you are not actively using your stove, you can also rest a cutting board on top of the burners (make sure they are off
Creating an instant island
If you have a room you can try a permanent solution through adding a small island in the middle of your kitchen can give you more disk space and storage space.I made a small island in my kitchen by placing a used agency that was around the waist high in the middle of my kitchen.I painted it to match My cabinets so that it would blend in.
Then I finished it by laying a wooden cutting board on top to make the surface more durable. Some home improvement stores will cut a piece of the bench bench to customize the top of your island.
If you can't find an agency that is the perfect height to use as an island, there are some options. Consider removing or removing the legs to make it shorter or add rollers to the bottom, making the agency longer.
You can also create your own kitchen island from IKEA furniture – check out these IKEA kitchen slots for inspiration
Use the space under your cabinets
You can add more storage space to your kitchen using the dead space under your cabinets.
Laying on a hanging wine glass stand, cutlery or knife box, jar hooks or a storage rack under your cabinets is a cheap and easy way to make more space for your kitchen.
You can find hanging organizers that can be installed without screws (as in the picture) – a good alternative for rentals or apartments. They simply hook around the bottom of the cabinet and can be moved as needed.
Use the cabinet doors also
Cabinet doors are also a good place to create storage space as well. Buy some racks hanging on the inside of the cabinet doors to store panlock, cleaning agents and cutting boards.
You can also use plastic hooks to hang foil and plastic packaging boxes on the inside of your cabinet doors.
To release some box space, I created a magnetic storage area for my measuring cups on the inside of a cabinet door. If you do not have metal measuring cups, you can use cup hooks instead of magnets. Check out the gallery below to see how I did it:
Use a voltage bar
Placing a voltage bar in the room below your sink may sound strange, but it gives you a good new space for organizing cleaning supplies .
You can also place a hanging bar between two separated cabinets, eg. over your sink. Then use S-hooks to hang spatulas, mixing spoons and other tools from the rod..
Get rid of your cookbooks
If you're not connected to your cookbooks, give them away. You can replace them with something much more compact and still have all the recipes you need. Some options include a Google Home Hub, a tablet with your favorite recipes, bookmarked or an Alexa device with Allrecipes, Food Network or other recipe competencies enabled.
If you go with a tablet for your cookbook replacement, you can make a stand for it from glue hooks to keep it away from splashing when cooking. Even better, the stand can be placed inside a cabinet door so that it is out of the way when not in use..
