Are you always looking for more kitchen bench top space? If you have a small kitchen the secret to convenience is to keep as much of your bench top space free for food preparation. Expand your preparation space and reduce kitchen clutter with these 5 ideas.

  1. Open Shelving
    As well as clearing bench top space, open shelving is ideal for hanging utensils, storing plates and showing off your crockery and favourite kitchen items. Open shelving including dish racks or knife holders can be installed anywhere, on your kitchen splashback, under your cabinets or in the middle of an empty wall as a feature, to solve all of your storage problems.
  2. Move the Microwave
    The microwave is a bulky appliance that takes up the most amount of space on your kitchen bench top. You want to store it out of the way but also in a convenient spot. Install a shelf to keep it on, store it under the bench top on a lower shelf in your kitchen island, in a cupboard or upper cabinets to get more space on your bench top.
  3. Invest in an over-the-sink chopping board
    Extend your work space by investing in a over-the-sink chopping board which fits over your sink. Buy a custom made board or one which includes a strainer to make your cooking preparation easier.
  4. Install an Appliances cabinet
    To solve the limited bench top space dilemma, consider installing an appliance cabinet. Store your most frequently used kitchen items such as your toaster, kettle, coffee machine and blender to de-clutter your workspace.
  5. Use your walls
    If you have any available wall space in your kitchen, take advantage of it by hanging kitchen items. Hang your cookware and pans on a pot rack to save you some space. This also offers easy access to your most used kitchen items.
