Gone are the days when kitchens were large and spacious. Homes and apartments are smaller and so are the kitchens. As modern families get smaller, the area dedicated to the kitchen is almost symbolic.To make effective use of the (little) space you have, invest in practices and planned ideas. We found 5 tips that will inspire you to make the best out of your small kitchen.
1. Install kitchen sink drawers that tip out.
To add some more space and keep things organized, you can install a false-front tip-out drawer. The easiest way to do this project is with a kit. The kit has everything you'll need including: tip-out hinges, baskets and all the hardware.
2. Hang corkboards on the inside of your cabinet door to take advantage of every bit of space.
These cork tiles come with little self adhesive squares for easy hanging, so the entire process is fast and furious.
3. Keep measuring equivalents and measuring cups handy with some hooks, chalkboard paint, and a chalk marker.
Chalkboard paint is not a new trend for the home, but it’s steadily growing in popularity simply because it’s fun as well as practical. Whether hidden inside a cabinet to record recipes or on a living room wall as a place to create interchangeable designs, chalkboard paint is here to stay.
4. Make it easier to find the pan you need by stacking them using pan dividers.
This will help you find pans by time and size at one glimpse. Besides, stacking pans as opposed to nesting them means you can remove one without having to remove them all. A great way to organize your cabinets and help you with the cooking.
The kitchen is a busy place and it doesn't take much to turn it into a big mess. Smart ideas can help overcome the lack of space. Find more small kitchen organization ideas here.
