The kitchen is one of those rooms that are hard to keep tidy and it’s easy that you feel you’re lack of space due to the variety of kitchen tools and objects you accumulate in your kitchens. Moreover, if you’re several persons living under the same roof, you’ll need more storage space for food, pots and cutlery. Through the time, a medium or small kitchen can become smaller and smaller while we acquire new tools and ingredients for developing our culinary skills. But everything can be solved, and in the case of saving space in a small kitchen, there’s infinity of possibilities. Check out the following tips for making the most of your small kitchen!
Get rid of the wall that separates your kitchen and your living room or dinning room. Like this, you can create an open space that will liven up your kitchen. You won’t get bored in your kitchen where more than one person wasn’t able to cook at the same time. Your family and friends’ll surround you while you prepare delicious meals. Forget about burned cakes while you’re relaxing in the living room, because everyone will notice that there’s something in the oven. Furthermore, with an open concept you can use a beautiful island where you can have breakfast. This kind of furniture is also perfect for dividing the space. Or you can even place a big dinning table that you can use when you hold a party as well as during your daily life.
