5 Tips to Maximize your Kitchen Space

Caldwell - Kitchen Blog1

The kitchen is the busiest and most used spot in your house! We have gathered some helpful tips to help you maximize your kitchen space and make the most of this space.

#1 – Hide counter seating
If you have kitchen island seating, consider stools that tuck completely in or close to the cabinets. You can also choose to have them in a similar colour to the is the island cabinetry to blend them with the rest of the kitchen. This simple step can save you a lot of walking around the room.

#2 – Maximize Floor Space
Save floor space or dining table with your kitchen island. You can go with a countertop height or stick with regular height. If you don’t have an island, consider adding a bar table in your kitchen and double up to create both an island plus and eating area.

#3 – Go Handle-less
To maximize every small inch of a small kitchen space (if applicable), consider foregoing handles on your cabinetry and going with modern handle-less kitchen designs to gain an extra 1-1/2″ of free space in front of the cabinetry.

#4 – Tie It All Together
Tie your own concept kitchen in with the rest of your space by using the same colour and finish everywhere in the room. For example, TV/media units, shelves, frames for mirrors/shelves and tabletops etc.

#5 – Compact Refrigerator
To facilitate healthier eating, consider a compact refrigerator and freezer so that you only store essential food items.
