Kitchen Gets Functional

Organizer Betty Kim transforms a small kitchen into a multifunctional space.

Before: Crowded Kitchen

Caroleen and Dave Wheeland, along with their son Jonah, are always on the go, which is why the busy city of Chicago makes the perfect home for them. But when it's time to come home, the family's small kitchen has them in a tizzy. It serves as a dining room and home office, so there just isn't enough space to make it all work.

At just 13' x 7', this kitchen should be enough for a family of three, but when it also has to act as a dining room and a home office, that's where it gets tricky. Its jam-packed cabinets and countertops slow everyone down. Organizer Betty Kim agrees to take control of the situation. Her plan is to maximize the organization and storage potential to give the Wheeland family a multifunctional space.
