Maximize Your Kitchen Space


If you want more kitchen countertop space without a major renovation, consider these tips to expand your current area.

  • Take stock of what you really need in your kitchen, and remove any cluttering knick-knacks, old mail, or useless appliances.
  • Make use of the area beneath your wall-mounted cabinets with space-saving devices such as under-the-cabinet appliances like coffeemakers, toasters, can openers, or microwave ovens.
  • Install pot racks or wire baskets from the ceiling or on the walls to hold cookware, utensils or produce.
  • Trade counter space for storage space. Consider installing multi-tiered slide-out bins and trays inside your cabinets or pantry for canned goods, snacks, or kitchen supplies. Attach wire racks on the inside of cabinet or pantry doors to save shalf space and to gain more storage room. In base cabinets, add rollout baskets for easy access to pots and supplies.
  • Install hooks for cups and mugs in cabinets where shelf space is limited.
  • Invest in a mobile kitchen cart that can be used for added counter workspace or for serving. Most kitchen carts also have shelves and drawers for extra storage.
