Make Your Small Kitchen Space Work for You!

If you have a small kitchen space, you might be struggling to find enough room to store things, to prep food, and to entertain guests. I will show you some furniture and storage solutions here that will make even the smallest of kitchens more manageable and pleasurable in which to work.

Your small space can work well for you, if you design it in a way to do so. Strategically placing proper furniture and extra storage cabinets is the key to not being frustrated every time you step foot in your small kitchen.

I have lived with many small kitchens in my lifetime, and I have always made them work well for me. They were never a burden or inconvenience, because I knew what worked well in those spaces.

The items featured here will get you off to a great start in reorganizing your kitchen to meet your needs.

Use Appropriate Sized Furniture in Your Small Kitchen

Bulky and oversized furniture does NOT belong in your small kitchen. Use small dining table sets, storage cabinets, kitchen ilsands, etc, so your kitchen can be functional, and you can still have room to move around or entertain a handful of guests.

A small rolling kitchen island will offer more food prep space and storage for pots & pans, and more items, yet it can be rolled out of the way when not in use.

Small cabinets can fit in nooks and crannies to hold food or kitchen items that simply won’t fit in your limited cupboard storage areas. The table shown here also has shelves to hold a few nic nacs or other items, which is a great way to use space wisely.

Small Kitchen Furniture

If you are fortunate enough to have a breakfast bar in your small kitchen, you can simply use 2-4 bar stools (depending on the size of your counter area) instead of a table and chairs on which to eat meals. You might also consider a bistro set if it’s just one or two people living in your home. If you are a family of 3 or 4 consider a small table with small chairs just large enough to accommodate your family, but which won’t take up too much space in your kitchen. Small kitchen islands offer extra prep and storage space, and if you get one with wheels, you can store it out of the way when you’re not using it. Small cabinets are a great way to keep things organized and off of your countertops, since you probably have limited counter space, too.

A small kitchen can look just as grand and stylish as a large kitchen when you incorporate these elegant furniture pieces into it. Get the most out of your small space by using appropriate sized furniture in it. Keep dishes, pots & pans, or food organized with small cabinets that fit nicely into small areas around your kitchen area, or use a room just off of the kitchen to house more storage options.

Your small kitchen calls for creative ways to store things such as food, spices, dishes, pots & pans, and so on. The items below will help you create neat and tidy areas on your counters, in your cupboards, and even utilizing space on your walls.

Consider the following solutions for small kitchen storage:

1. Use an under the counter or wall mount spice rack for all your spices.
2. Keep pots & pans on a pot rack above your stove or kitchen island.
3. Use tiered baskets to hold fresh fruit and other items.
4. Use multi-drawered units on top of counters to hold coffee pods, pot holders, recipes, and more.
5. A Lazy Susan can be used inside a cupboard for spices or small dishes, or set one on your kitchen table to hold napkins, salt & pepper shakers, and other items you use on a regular basis.
6. Consider wire shelves inside a cupboard door to hold plastic wrap, etc.
7. Hooks inside cupboard doors will hold dish towels, and other necessities.
8. A wire basket hanging from the ceiling can hold fresh fruit and other items without taking up optimal counter or cupboard space.
9. Corner storage racks are ideal for cupboards, counters, and even refrigerators to optimize your space.

Your kitchen decor can include canisters (which also work as storage), tabletop decor such as a floral centerpiece or a fruit basket, and wall decor such as framed art, canvas prints, wall clocks, etc.

If you like things neat and tidy, then don’t overdo it on the decor. You can add a rug in front of your kitchen sink or under your table for pops of color and design, and it won’t take up needed space on counters or tables.

Wall decals are also great options for small spaces, or use wall paper on a featured wall to give it added interest and design.

Keep things simple and your small space will serve you well!

Use your space wisely when adding decorative touches. Plants, baskets, teapots, etc, look lovely on top of cupboards, if you have the space for them, and an oversized wall clock does wonders over your kitchen table! If your colors and designs flow well together, then your small space will look even bigger. Keeping it uncluttered as much as possible will allow you more room to cook and entertain.

Use any of these items to dress up areas in your small kitchen. Consider a unified theme or color scheme, or if you like eclectic design, you can mix and match according to your design tastes.

Oven mitts, pot holders, and kitchen towels are not only practical, they can make nice decorative touches when hung on walls or hooks.
