Optimize and be creative with storage options.
You can maximize storage space by choosing pot racks, cutlery hooks and magnetic knife strips attach to the wall or above the kitchen island.
Installing drawers at the end of the kitchen island, adding a storage basket or even shelves above the sink, is also a great option.
You can also install an appliance garage, which can tuck away that toaster, coffeemaker, or other appliances when not in use… or even perhaps install a designated cabinet with a spring-loaded shelf. You can literally conceal all of your appliances by using folding wood pocket doors to conceal the entire counter and cabinet area against the wall to provide a clutter-free kitchen space.
Finally, don’t be afraid to use your “green thumb.” Adding plants can help make your small kitchen space feel closer to nature… and you happier.
