Make the Most of a Small Kitchen with These Home Renovation Tips!
Home renovations are all about bringing the space you live closer to your ideal vision of what it can and should be—including comfort, usability, accessibility, and of course, aesthetics! In the 21st century, despite the power to order a pizza straight to your home from your smartphone or computer, the kitchen is still one of the most used spaces in the entire home. From making breakfast, to teaching your kids to survive without you, and to hanging out with your friends drinking wine and snacking on cheese, it’s a multi-purpose space, and one of the most important in your home. So what do you do when your kitchen is a little on the small side—and can kitchen renovations help?
Here are a few home renovations to help you get the most out of a small kitchen:
Consider an Island
I don’t mean you should consider buying your own, private island (though let’s be honest, if you can afford to, you totally should), no, we’re talking about the kitchen island. Even a small one can be a space saver, and it lends a touch of effortless modernity to an older kitchen, too. See, an island does triple-duty—it’s counter space, it’s a space for eating socializing, and with the cupboards built into its sides, it’s storage space, too!
The thing about a kitchen is, it needs storage space. Cutlery, glassware, cookware, dining sets, food, and everything else needs somewhere to go, after all. If you have a nearby closet that you can convert into a pantry, for example, this is a great way to alleviate the burden of space from your kitchen cupboards. And while we’re on the cupboards, consider replacing them during your kitchen renovations. Strategically-places cupboards that go higher and have more overall volume can be a great way to maximize space.
Slim It Down
Are you looking at your old appliances, thinking they could definitely be a little slimmer (or at the very least a little newer)? Well guess what? Plenty of appliance vendors sell slim, or miniature-size versions of their products. Shaving a few inches off your fridge, oven, and dishwasher during your home renovations can mean more counter space, more storage, and most importantly, more space for your feet when you’re trying to scramble from end to end before company shows up for dinner, putting the last touches on everything.
