Our kitchens tend to accumulate so much clutter despite perhaps being one of the most important rooms in the house to keep space-efficient. Those of us with smaller sized kitchens especially have to struggle with having enough room for our appliances and keeping enough counter space to keep cooking from being way more of a hassle than it ought to be. If investing in professional kitchen remodeling in Bucks County is a near-future goal you’re considering, then here are a few practical design ideas to keep in mind to get the most out of your kitchen space.
- Tall cabinets are the way to go – If cabinet storage space is a priority for you, then it just makes sense to have your wall cabinets extend all the way up to the ceiling. Though the highest shelves on a tall cabinet won’t be convenient to reach without breaking out a stool for some, it’s still more useful than the empty space between a wall cabinet that stops short of the ceiling by a foot or so. You can always use the top shelves to store appliances or dishware that will rarely get used so it won’t get in the way rather than trying to overstuff shorter cabinets or letting it all clutter your counters.
- Pull-out pantry – Another fantastic and practical idea is the installation of a pull-out pantry. A pull-out pantry doesn’t take up very much space and can easily make the most out of a very small amount of space. Sandwiched between counters, appliances, or walls, a pull-out pantry can be squeezed in just about anywhere by an expert kitchen designer. Many models are less than two feet across and smoothly pull out to expose a single column of pantry shelves. The amount of vertical storage a pull-out pantry can provide definitely exceeds what you would get out of a wall cabinet and small section of counter space.
- All in one kitchen island – If you have enough open floor space in the center of your kitchen, then an island can be an extremely useful investment. Not only does it look very appealing and give you way more countertop space to work with, but it can also be custom designed to do far more than just that. Shelves can be installed to provide even more storage space for cookware and appliances, and large appliances such as ovens, stovetops, sinks, and dishwashers can potentially be worked in to create a truly compact and efficient center to your kitchen.
- Wall-mounted storage – If you’re hurting for kitchen space, then blank walls are easily one of your biggest enemies. Decorative art is usually a go-to in order to fill in a big blank stretch of wall, but it might be more worth your while to install wall-mounted shelves, spice racks, cookware racks, knife racks, or whatever you might have need of to free up space on your counters and in your cabinets. A lot of wall-mounted installations can be very aesthetically pleasing as well as convenient when done right.
