Expanding the kitchen to cover a larger area is a great home remodeling project for any homeowner. Unfortunately, not everyone has space to spare in their home. But don’t despair if you find yourself in the same situation. You can definitely carve more space out of your small kitchen by simply being creative and organized. Here are some tips from our team at Empire State Builders and Contractors to help you out:
Multi-Task and Multi-Purpose
While removing unnecessary items and fixtures in your kitchen may help free up space, adding tools that serve multiple purposes and allow you to multitask also helps. For more countertop space, for instance, put in a regular table instead of expanding the countertop itself. The table can serve as an additional meal preparation area when you’re cooking for a large group. You’ll have the extra dining space when you need it too.
Accessorizing cabinets to fit more items in them is another great way to maximize your kitchen space. You can have hanging racks installed behind the doors. You can fit boxes and bins inside larger cabinets to act as organizers. We offer cabinet refacing along with our other kitchen remodeling services at Empire State Builders and Contractors because we understand the importance of well-utilized cabinetry.
In a kitchen that feels small, consider utilizing vertical space. Many people overlook how much more storage units they can install if they build upwards. You can have shelves at different heights. Place items which are used less frequently on higher shelves. Place commonly used items on lower shelves to keep them from taking up precious countertop space.
