Maybe it’s a little more apparent at this time of year, in the thick of the holiday season when so much is happening in the kitchen (and with so many people, to boot!). But kitchen space is invaluable. No matter what style your kitchen is – traditional, contemporary or somewhere in between – and no matter how big it is, maximizing the space you do have is one of the keys of enjoying this holiday season. Saving space is really about making things easier, more organized, and less cluttered. In essence, making the most of not only your space but also the items within your space. Here are some pretty quick and easy, yet totally essential, ideas for you to incorporate into your kitchen. Most of them are so simple, you’ll wonder why you didn’t think of them sooner!
Install a metal bar directly under your cabinets and throw on some S-hooks – viola! You’ve just freed up a couple of “miscellaneous” drawers. You know the ones – the ones that are so full with oddly shaped items that they’re hard to open and, once open, it takes a while to find the item you actually need. I love how this idea can integrate easily into any style of kitchen. Taking two minutes to install a tension curtain rod in a kitchen cupboard (think: under the kitchen sink) will reap major rewards when you find you now have an organized, sanitary place for your kitchen cleaner spray bottles. You could even use the rod to drape cleaning cloths so you have everything in the same place for some quick cleanup.
The wheels on a kitchen island don’t necessarily mean that you have to also use it in other rooms as well. They’re just as useful for moving the island around just a few inches, to make it easier for you when prepping or cooking. When you have a small kitchen like this one placed in the corner of the living room, a portable kitchen island can be of great use. Take wherever you need it or push it away if you want to move more freely in the kitchen. Also, it can allow you to extend the kitchen into the living room. The most wonderful thing about mobile kitchen islands on wheels is that they allow to easily reconfigure the space. Your kitchen can get a whole new look in just seconds. Here, for example, the island were intentionally moved closer to the stove for the picture. There’s also another practical detail about kitchen islands on wheels. Although it’s a small thing, it can prove to be very useful: cleaning becomes easier when you can move the furniture around.
