It is uncommon to come across a home that is ideal in every way. The trick is to be aware of your must-haves. If you want a large kitchen but it isn’t a must-have, you can decide that a home with a smaller kitchen is still the best option. In such case, try the following suggestions for making your new home’s small kitchen appear and feel larger.
There are probably locations in your kitchen where you can practically make more space. Purchase a sink cover, for example, to provide additional space for chopping. Cover the burners on your stove in the same way to turn them into a workstation. Installing a fold-down table into the wall that can be lowered when more room is required. Examine any place that is underutilized or underutilized on a regular basis to determine if there is a way to make it more usable.
Utilize the vertical space
There are probably vertical areas that aren’t being used. Is your stove surrounded by a wall? It may be the ideal location for a pegboard on which to hang pots and pans. Magnetic strips that store knives or spices can be installed in small locations beneath cabinets or above sinks. Remember that the area on your refrigerator may be used for chalkboards, hangers, and much more.
Make use of little bookcases
Incorporating a few tiny bookshelves into your kitchen might be really beneficial. They’re small, come in a variety of heights, and have a lot of storage space. They can, of course, be used to store cookbooks, but they may also be used to store pots and pans, food, storage containers, dry goods, baskets, and so on. Then, on the side, put hooks for holding aprons and other light cooking items.
Modernize Your Lighting
Lighting levels in kitchens may be difficult to achieve. You may have obsolete lighting fixtures that may be replaced simply by cleaning the bulbs and replacing the covers. If your prep room and workplace are lacking in light, use adhesives to install lights beneath the cabinets.
Make sure that any tract lighting or other lighting that may be directed is aimed at the “kitchen triangle.” This refers to the well-worn road that leads from the stove to the refrigerator and then to the sink. If there isn’t enough illumination, add some.
