Tips for more storage space in your small kitchen
The less space you have, the more effectively you’ll have to equip and plan your kitchen. In doing so, always remember that small kitchens have one big advantage: everything is within reach! That said, everything needs its own place. Good organisation is essential. It is vital to make the most of the depth of your cabinets. To do this, install storage systems that you can pull out of the cabinet on rails and fully extendible kitchen cabinet. That way you won’t be wasting any potential storage space. You can show off gleaming pots and pans by hanging them on special fixtures. This looks professional and saves space. Rails with hooks or magnets on the walls or at the sides of the kitchen island ensure that all of the utensils are immediately to hand. You could plan in a manual corner cabinet turntable to make best use of dead corners, nooks and crannies. Cabinets with electronically extending shelving are also impressive and extremely practical. One touch of a button, and you can reach even the farthest corner with ease.
How to increase your existing worktop space
It’s best to extend your worktop in the place where you prepare ingredients to go in the cooking pot, i.e. around the sink. This is where you wash, peel and chop food, fill pots and pour water away. Opt for either a narrow sink that has room for working at the sides or integrate a large sink into the middle of the worktop or the kitchen island. Custom-fit chopping boards, corner-caddies and top-rails provide additional space for preparing food. Recycling, composting andwaste bins can be elegantly stored within a drawer in the base cabinet, ideally together with a waste management system beneath the sink. After all, this is the place where you prepare your meals and dispose left-over foods.
