Having a small kitchen can sometimes be a disturbing factor. You don’t have enough space for storage, preparing meals, cooking, or anything. You feel lost in the chaos because of the lack of usable space. Sometimes a little rearrangement can solve the problem, sometimes, a more significant transformation is needed, but nothing is impossible. We have gathered some valuable tips and compositions to give you some ideas to help you make more space in your kitchen.
20 Barchairs under the counter
If you don’t have enough space for a table and four chairs, use bar chairs and keep them under the counter. This way, four people can still comfortably eat at the same time, but you have more space for other kitchen equipment.
19 Hanging pans
You can spare some valuable space by hanging your frying pans from the side of the kitchen drawer, the cupboard, or the walls. You can use little hooks or self-adhesive hangers.
18 Hidden drawers and cabinets
Little built-in hidden drawers and cabinets can be handy if you have a small kitchen with limited space to store your equipment.
17 Knives on the wall
You can buy these magnetic stripes in almost every kitchen equipment shop, where you can store your knives and other cutlery. It saves a lot of space in the drawers for other small things you wouldn’t want to place on the counter.
16 U-shaped kitchen
If you have small space for the kitchen, you might want to think about building a U-shaped kitchen to have more surfaces to work on and to pack your stuff. It’s also handy if the stove has a top that can be turned down, making that space a flat surface.
15 Shelf in front of the window
This only works when your window isn’t opening inwards, but this is a handy space-saving trick. You can also install self-adhesive hooks on the bottom of the shelf to store the pans.
14 Hangers above the kitchen
You can quickly drill a hanger above the kitchen, and with the help of some hooks, you can hang your frying pans and everything else that has a hole in it. You can save a lot of space with this trick.
13 Pegs for everyone
God bless the pegs and the wheeled small table. Have you ever had a problem where you always had to move something away and back to use something in the kitchen? It’s much easier to store stuff on pegs and an easily movable table.
12 Huge hidden cabinet
We have shown you smaller hidden cabinets, but this one is amazing. It’s as tall as the inner height itself, and you can store almost anything there: spices, glasses, cans, wine, cutlery, reserved snacks, etc.
11 Wine rack
If you don’t want to constantly pull out and push back the cabinets, leave some space, and voilá, you have a wine rack. Be careful; always store the bottles on their side to keep the corkwood wet. If they become dry, the bottles will crack, and the wine will go wrong because of the air going into the bottle.
10 Built-in fridge
A built-in fridge is very clever if you don’t have enough space. It’s even better to look stylish as it blends into the environment.
9 Extra table
Making a part of the cupboard removable, detachable, or foldable is just brilliant. If you don’t have a table where you can eat, you can still have a temporary one, like in the picture.
8 Mini shelves and systematizing
Believe us or not, systematizing the small things, cutlery and cups can help a lot if you have limited space in your kitchen. By the way, this way it looks very nice and homey.
7 Shelves on the wall
This idea is just brilliant. Building some shelves into the kitchen wall can save you lots of space and also be handy for storing your spices, oils, flour, and frequently used materials within reach.
6 Cabinets without doors
If you lack space in the kitchen, it can be not very pleasant always to stand aside when you open something. If you don’t use the doors, use the cabinets as shelves, it will save you a lot of moving space.
5 Shelves everywhere
We have mentioned the advantages of having a lot of shelves, but we can’t highlight the fact that it’s never enough.
4 Use the unused space
Most people wouldn’t even think of making a pull-out closet in a place like that, but check out how smart it is. Kitchen spoons, egg-beater, ladles, and other equipment that would take up a whole drawer now can be stored in one place.
3 Drawer or work surface? Why not both?
We have shown you a lot of hidden closets and cabinets before, but this small drawer hides a large working surface that can come in handy this time, especially if you love coffee.
2 Hanging shelves
Don’t you have enough space on the walls to put up some shelves? Don’t worry; you can also hang them from the ceiling; this way, they can be cleaned even more quickly because there is no space you can’t reach.
1 Built-in microwave
Clever idea! Building your microwave oven in the cupboard is useful when you have so little space in your kitchen that you can’t make enough space elsewhere, but apart from that, it’s a stylish solution too.
