Maximizing Space In A Small Kitchen: Ideas For You

If you have a small kitchen at home, you may be wondering if there are any ways that you can make your small space seem larger. There are many different ways that you can maximize the space in a small kitchen. Get to know a few ideas to make the most out of your small kitchen space so you can get started making changes as soon as possible. 

Install Hanging Racks

One of the best ways to maximize space in your small kitchen is to think vertically. You have all of this space up above you that is not being utilized in your kitchen. Installing a hanging pot and lid rack or wall corner pot racks can put this space to use. 

You will be able to free up space in your cupboards because your pots and pans will be on the hanging racks. This will help you to better use your storage space as well as easily access your cooking essentials when you are using your kitchen. 

Put the Inside of Your Cabinet Doors to Use

Another area of your kitchen that might be underutilized is the inside of your cabinet doors. There are many things that you can do with your cabinet doors to use the space better. One way is to install an over-the-door spice rack on the cabinet door. You could also add hooks to the inside of the doors to store your measuring cups and spoons. 

Under the sink, you can hang baskets on the inside of the cabinet doors. This can help you store sponges, cleaning supplies, and other items, freeing up more under the sink space for additional items. 

Use a Magnetic Knife Strip

Knife blocks can take up counter space that you could otherwise put to good use or leave clear for food prep and cooking. A great way to do away with the need of a knife block is to purchase and install a magnetic knife strip on your wall (over your sink would be a good place for it). This will allow you to easily access your knives when you are cooking as well as open up drawer space for other utensils. 

Now that you know some of the ways that you can maximize the space in your small kitchen, you can start putting these ideas to use. You will have a much more organized and spacious feeling kitchen before you know it.
