Today’s rising cost of owning a home in Victoria BC has produced a new trend in housing with small house living, or you may already be living in a home where space is at a premium. The kitchen is one room you may find difficult to imagine making the most of on a smaller scale. Listed below are some suggestions to maximize your kitchen space.
Rolling carts that allow for the portability to roll it out when you need extra counter space then can be conveniently tucked away in a closet.
Pot racks mounted on the wall or hung from the ceiling save the space used to store them and pans are right at your fingertips.
Conquer the corners which are mostly underutilized when it comes to countertop work area. Consider designing your kitchen with the sink or stove there, or built ins to store small appliances while losing very little counter space and a more uncluttered overall look.
Cutting boards cut to size that fit over your sink expand your work surface when doing meal preparation.
Smaller appliances may be all you need on a daily basis unless you regularly cook for a crowd, installing a smaller stove or dishwasher can help optimize cupboard space in a downsized kitchen.
Storage solutions are another great way to make use of every inch of your kitchen, think about hanging utensils and spice racks inside cupboard doors, or mounting open shelving on your backsplash for more storage.
