Use These 4 Tips To Make Your Small Kitchen Seem More Spacious

Whether you’re in the confines of apartment-land or moving to a smaller home, making the most of a small space is a recurring theme. Especially within the world of year-long leases, you’re hard-pressed to find a kitchen with much more than a single block of counter-space. Not to mention the rise of micro-studios that don’t have more than a kitchenette! We’ve gathered four tips we’ve found useful for navigating the trials of small spaces.

What Can Go On The Wall?

This is the best tool we’ve found for creating more space in a cozier kitchen. Taking the time to build a few shelves, racks, and hooks into the walls of your space will eliminate an immense amount of clutter from your limited drawer, and existing shelf space. Organization is a key component to this mentality. More organization of things in a small space equals significantly less physical and visual clutter.

What Can Just, Go?

Don’t overstuff your small room that requires space for regular movement! If you’re moving into an apartment, or from a larger home to a smaller one, think about everything that can go. Keeping a minimal, yet effective collection of cookware or even lavatory supplies will maximize space definitely. If it’s your personal kitchen, narrow it down to two of everything! Two of every silverware, plate, bowl, dish, so that you always have a clean one in rotation. Though it requires slightly more regular maintenance, minimizing the amount of stuff you’re trying to cram into a smaller space.

No Dishwasher? No Countertop? Customize!

A huge complaint from younger tenants in older buildings is the lack of a dishwasher. A lot of the time an older apartment building, or home won’t come equipped with even a pull-down sprayer on the kitchen sink. You can change this! Installing a pull-down sprayer with two different spray settings can make the chore of doing your dishes by hand much less of a woe. Just make sure to swap it back out before you move to not violate any rental agreements!

If you have space for something more drastic, there are several portable dishwashers that come in all sizes from countertop models to butcher-block-top styles that can double as counter space! These nifty things need not much more than a sink and an outlet to plug into to get your dishes squeaky clean.
