Every kitchen should run smoothly to be livable and likable. Each component in the room, especially in compact kitchens, must be perfectly planned to overcome the limits of cooking in a small space. This means that planning the layout of a small kitchen often takes longer than designing a bigger room because the measurements should be exact. Handyman Connection of Lincoln shares some organization tips that can help you make the most of the space in your kitchen:
Work Your Walls
When surface area is sparse, turn to your walls for extra storage space. You can mount a pegboard to hang all your essentials on, and install rods where you can hang your pots and pans. Free your cupboards by hanging anything that has a handle, from ladles to cups to towels. Aside from the added space, your kitchen also benefits from improved appeal, since your items can double as decorative pieces.
Maximize Your Cabinet Space
Lacking space to store your items? Don’t neglect the area above your cabinets. You can stash things that you don’t often use up there in baskets to create a look of uniformity. You can also get creative with the basket designs to add a charming feature to your kitchens. Alternatively, if you have a set of decorative pieces that would just get in the way of kitchen prep, you can show them off by placing them on top of your cabinets.
Switch to Drawers
You can gain maximum use of the available area by switching to drawers. They allow easy access to all your kitchen necessities unlike cupboards, which require rummaging. By contrast, drawers are neater and less cluttered. Rows of drawers also look effortlessly organized and chic even when their contents are not. Additionally, you can organize your items per drawer, so you can easily locate them. For instance, the top drawer should have all the kitchen utensils, the second one plates, and the third one cooking utensils.
