Whilst it is great to have a beautifully designed kitchen, an organised and well-run space will make your home life easer, especially in a small area. You don’t need an expansive space to have a functional kitchen – the most important step is getting organised and making it easier to find what you need when cooking. Here’s how to make the most of your small kitchen and organise your space.
Throw out what you don’t need: If you keep only your kitchen essentials and give away or get rid of anything you don’t use, it will free up space for better organisation and make it easier to quickly find what you need.
Use Cabinet Dividers: Clutter will make any kitchen feel smaller than it is. Simple cabinet dividers can keep everything from falling out of your cupboards and allows you to have a designated home for all your cookware. Try shelf inserts, hooks, baskets and pot lid organisers.
Hang up your Cookware: Hanging your pots and pans can free up a huge amount of cupboard space and keeps things close at hand when you’re in a rush to prepare. Displaying your cooking equipment out in the open can also add to your kitchen’s design.
Try Open Shelving: Open shelving is a great way to make your kitchen appear larger as it reduces visual weight and also keeps you organised as you will be inspired to keep things neat and tidy if they are on display. Think of decorative ways you can store your food such as glass jars for your herbs and spices.
Buy Smaller Appliances: Downsizing on your appliances can free up your bench top space and allow you to fit more in your cabinets. Trade in your large mixer, four-slice toaster and sandwich press for compact versions.
Use more Drawers: By using more drawers you are ensuring that everything is able to be located easily and readily. How many items are being lost or forgotten by being pushed to the back of a shelf down low or up high?
Corner Access Systems: Harrington kitchens can show you some brilliant new systems for accessing those troublesome corners in your kitchen. Much like drawers they enable easy and reliable access to those difficult to reach areas.
