Everyone wants a great kitchen. One of the most enjoyed spaces in the home, the kitchen is used for cooking, gathering, and entertaining. However, a great kitchen doesn't necessarily have to mean a large one. Below are a handful of tips to help you make use of every nook in your kitchen.
Make use of walls. Instead of hanging pictures on your kitchen walls, hang your pots and pans. You can even find great fixtures to hang your plates and wine glasses from the ceilings or walls.
Add a mirrored backsplash. While you may not want to take up precious wall space with mirrors, a mirrored backsplash can add depth and girth to your room, making use of an area that would otherwise have no purpose.
Build up. Need more cabinet space? Look up! If your existing cabinets don't extend to the ceiling, you're wasting precious footage. Consider having additional cabinets built where you can store things you rarely use, like that crock pot that comes out once a year, or your holiday china.
Abolish clutter. Nothing cramps an already small space more than clutter, and a clean countertop can do wonders for a small space. Streamline your gadgets, sell or donate what you don't need, and store away what you don't use every day.
Light it right. A well-lit space can really open up your kitchen. Consider adding a skylight if possible, or add a bay window. For night-time, choose ambient lighting to create an airy, open feel after dark.
