The majority of homeowners we talk and work with during the design phase of a kitchen remodel want one thing in common, more counter space. Here are some ways that our designers can work with you to create more space in your kitchen.
Most people use their windowsills for plants, and while that is aesthetically pleasing you don’t have to limit yourself there. If you have a deep kitchen windowsill you can use it to hold kitchen canisters and things that clutter up the countertops. You can buy storage bins to place the items in so that you don’t see appliances or whatever it may be you are storing, instead you will see containers that go along with your kitchen’s decor/theme.
Adding a pullout cutting board is a great way to maximize your kitchen counter space. These are also perfect for small kitchens because they’re extending your counter space with a board you can put away. When you are done using the extra counter space, you just slide it back into its place.
One of the best ways to maximize your counter space is to store your bulky items somewhere other than the counter. One example of this is to create a knife block on the inside of your kitchen cabinets. Knife blocks are larger items that sit on top of your counter and take up a lot of space.
Fruit bowls and coffee bars are fun to create and pretty to look at but think about how much space they take up on your counters. You can create wall space for these items or anything else you want to add in your kitchen by placing them on the wall.
Most refrigerators are placed against a wall. If this is the case in your kitchen, then you can create a pullout rolling cabinet which is a perfect place for storing things like spices, cutting boards, or baking sheets.
A microwave sitting on the counter is one of the largest kitchen appliances that you’ll have on the counter. You can mount this under a kitchen cabinet or even build a custom alcove for the appliance. You definitely won’t regret the space you gain from moving the microwave.
