In general, kitchen islands are built with enclosed bases, meaning the inside is usually hollow. Come to think of it, that’s a lot of wasted space. So why not consider leaving the underside of the island exposed and create shelves in it instead? Here you can put kitchen utensils like pots, platters, magazines, cookbooks or any other items to free up space on top of the counter. If you don’t like the idea of leaving it exposed, you can have cabinet doors installed on it.
Some kitchen cabinets don’t run all the way up to the ceiling. If this is the case for you, then you may notice that there’s a lot of space on top of your cabinets which you can use as storage spaces. Many homeowners use this extra space to keep platters and other items they occasionally use. The space can even be used to hold smaller items like bottles, glasses and others. In order to keep it looking organized, you can use small bins to hold the smaller items.
Downsize Kitchen Furniture and Appliances
When choosing kitchen furniture and appliances, you need to consider how their size will affect the kitchen. For instance, larger furniture and appliances can make the kitchen feel too cramped. It can also make it difficult for you to move around as you go about with your kitchen duties. By choosing smaller kitchen furniture and appliances, you can make your kitchen feel more spacious. It will also leave you with more room to install kitchen cabinets which you can use to store kitchen utensils and supplies.
Having custom cabinets made is one of the best approach to creating more storage space in your tiny kitchen. Custom cabinets are specially designed and constructed to fit right into your kitchen’s space requirements.
