There are many ways to maximize the amount of space your kitchen allows you to use. Sometimes it’s as simple as changing appliances, and sometimes it take bigger renovation projects, depending on what you want to accomplish. Some of the simpler ways to do more with less space include getting a smaller fridge, making cabinets higher, and changing your countertops. For more extreme makeovers, consider creating recessed units, removing islands, or even pushing the ceiling into the attic of your home. Every kitchen is different, so it depends what you want to accomplish.
- When faced with minimal space and in this instance specifically 100 square feet or less, thinking ahead is is key to provide a useful kitchen.
- Smaller counter depth can be a huge way to save space across the board. This will require appliances that fit in this depth, but it will then give more standing room and space to cook.
- Using fewer, but larger cabinets, will allow for a more efficient use of space, as less space will be consumed by partitions and hinges for the cabinets themselves.
