10 Ways to Increase Your Kitchen Space

ORGANIZED UNDER: Home // Organizing // Well Planned Gal

Do you battle cluttered countertops and overly full cabinets? It seems we could always use a little more kitchen space!

Every kitchen is different, and some have more flexibility than others. Here are some of my favorite tips for maximizing every inch of kitchen space.

Shelves

Look for unused wall space to hang shelves for additional storage.

And More Shelves

Use adjustable shelves to maximize your storage space to hold items like vases and jugs.

Baskets

Use matching baskets to hold non-refrigerated produce such as onion, garlic, and potatoes.

S Hooks

Mount a stainless-steel bar with S hooks to hang a spice rack or utensils. You can also use a magnetic knife strip as well, but remember to keep out of reach of children.

Butcher Block

DIY a butcher block surface if you don’t already have one. This useful piece can double as island and a cutting board, as well as hold extra storage.

Creative Space

Substitute a dish drainer with an over-the-sink or wall-mounted variety.

Matching

Buy matching place sets. Having matching items will help your kitchen look organized and clean.

Bright Space

Paint the walls. Lighter colors help the space seem bigger.

Double Duty

Free up drawer space by using the kitchen table. Place flatware in a caddy in the center of the table.

Mount Up

Save counter space by mounting small appliances, like a microwave, coffeemaker, or toaster, under upper cabinets.
