Small Kitchen? No Problem! Organize Any Small Kitchen With These 23 Expert-Approved Tips
There can never be too much space in the kitchen, especially when working with a small space. And when the clutter inevitably begins to accumulate, every inch of space needs to work twice as hard.
Fortunately, organizing a small kitchen doesn't need to be stressful. With a couple of clever
tricks, you can organize a small kitchen with no trouble at all. To help you get your space back under control, Redfin reached out to experts like us from Boulder, CO, all the way to Stittsville, ON, for their best organization tips and tricks to get the functional kitchen you’ve envisioned.
My favorite tips from the article are:
1) Pare it down to the essentials
Keep only those items that you use regularly and ditch the rest. Skip gadgets like waffle makers, grapefruit knives, and 16 different sizes of whisks. They take up unnecessary space. Also, pare down on odd spices that you only use once in a blue moon. Contrary to popular opinion, spices do lose their flavor after a while, so keep only the items you use regularly. - Serene Transitions
2) Utilize the insides of cabinets and over-the-door storage
Having a small kitchen means optimizing your space and using the inside of cabinet and closet doors to give you more storage. Door-mounted or over-the-door storage is ideal for storing items such as food storage wraps (plastic, aluminum foil, parchment paper, etc.), spices, canned goods, or other small-scale items. Adding shelf inserts/racks also creates an additional level to store more kitchen items in your cabinets. - H.O.M.E. by Ali
3) Consider the shape of your dishes
Maximize your storage potential by opting for rectangular or square plates, baskets, and storage containers. When you’re short on cabinets and shelving storage, every inch counts, so it’s helpful to remember that round dishes and containers can quickly add up to a lot of wasted space. You’ll be amazed at how much space you have been wasting. - Organize You Happy
