Some people seem to be blessed with a big and spacious kitchen. Whilst others have to make do with a little bit of a shortage of space.
If you are someone who isn’t blessed in the kitchen front, then there are things that you can do to make sure that every inch is used. To help you, we have put together our top tips for how to save space in your kitchen.
Get creative with storage
You may be surprised to find that some of the storage ideas from elsewhere in your home are actually going to prove to be useful in your kitchen. Magazine racks are ideal for pots and pans lids and you can even find office filing systems useful for your foil and cling film. All great for saving you space.
Declutter the space
A kitchen can quickly become cluttered, particularly if you have lots of ingredients banging about. De cluttering your kitchen cupboards not only gives you space for other things, but it also makes sure that you don’t have out of date items that really should be thrown away.
If you can’t declutter then fake it!
Sometimes, despite your best efforts, your kitchen stays cluttered. If this is true, then all is not lost. There are ways that you can arrange all your things without having to worry about them cluttering up cupboards. Use storage baskets or boxes within a cupboard, as these will then keep everything tidy and hidden away.
Try out some upcycling
Upcycling is a big thing. Especially since it not only makes your home look gorgeous, but it saves you money too. If your kitchen is getting cramped, then you may find that repurposing some furniture or items from the room and the rest of the house, will give you some extra options for storage.
Shelves are great, particularly in a smaller kitchen. They allow you to store items out of the way, but they don’t take up any floor space. Shelves make ideal storage for cereals, pots and pretty much anything in between and best of all, they are pretty cheap and easy to install too.
So, now you know that there are some ways that you can make a tiny kitchen look that little bit more spacious. Whilst it might not give you enough room to install a new dishwasher or that gigantic fridge that you crave, it can make the space feel that little bit bigger.
