Space-saving ideas for small kitchens

Living in a condo or apartment, particularly if it’s a studio unit, can be a challenge when it comes to space. The kitchen area tends to have limited storage and counter space. You'll  want to make the most of your compact kitchen by using these clever space-saving tricks. Get tips...

Commit to your compact kitchen space by opting for smaller appliances. Avoid buying huge appliances you don’t have the space for.

Smart storage systems

Employ clever storage systems to accommodate your every storage need. Opt for adjustable shelving to suit varying heights of pots and pans, and drawer organizers to keep your drawer contents neat and tidy. Corner cabinets are particularly difficult to access so you'll want to employ rollout trays or a lazy Susan in your corner cabinet for easier access. 

Vertical storage

Take advantage of vertical space in your small kitchen. Install floor-to-ceiling cabinets or in the case of overhead cabinets, have them go all the way up to the ceiling. You may also opt for open shelving for a more open feel.

Pullout pantry

The kitchen pantry is accessed on a daily basis, but in a typical small kitchen space where pantries come in the form of cabinets, small pantry items may be difficult to find. To remedy this go for a slim pullout pantry for convenient access to every item.

Small appliances

Commit to your compact kitchen space by opting for smaller appliances. Avoid buying huge appliances you don’t have the space for. A smaller refrigerator can instantly cut down on space requirements.
