How to Get a Tiny Kitchen Cooking
Challenged by the constraints of a tiny kitchen? This can be a difficult space to streamline since it is the center of so much household action.
Good news: There are many simple ways to make even the smallest kitchen organized, attractive and functional.
Concentrate first on arranging the kitchen to maximize the space you do have. Assess the amount of counter, cupboard and wall space available before beginning your organization process. Then consider your kitchen contents and how they will most efficiently fit in.
Although round containers look pretty, square ones save a lot more space, especially in small square pantries. You can see from the photo above how much more room a round jar would take up in the cupboard.
Get creative with utensil and cookware storage. You can put magnetic racks on the walls, fridge or inside cupboards. For items you reach for constantly, consider arranging in small jars, making them part of the décor.
Utilize baskets and bins for storage; you can put everything from spices and oils to cleaning supplies in these. Label clearly so you can find things easily. Buy the baskets in colors designed to brighten your kitchen, or create the color yourself by attaching fabric.
Make sure your kitchen is well-lit, which will improve and open up the visual space. If you don’t have a natural source, such as the window pictured above, try implementing lamps, stick-on lights or even a string of Christmas lights to brighten things up.
Finally, never underestimate the power of plants to liven up any room in the house. Place a few pretty greens in the kitchen — perhaps herbs that can double as actual ingredients in your recipes!
