Corral the Clutter

Maximize the (minimal) counter space in your small kitchen and cut out clutter in one fell swoop with a single serving tray or basket. Use the tray or basket to corral bulky kitchen essentials like cookbooks and cutting boards. This approach ensures nothing is in the way or out of reach when working in the kitchen. Bonus? Serving trays come in every style and are an effortless way to add personality to your space.

Stealthy Storage

Petite kitchens call for creative storage solutions, and this secret baseboard cabinet fits the bill. The unexpected drawer tucks out of sight beneath the traditional lower cabinets, making use of the often-overlooked gap between cabinetry and the floor to store cutting boards between use.

Optimize Your Island

Don’t let a pint-sized kitchen keep you from living your island dreams. Invest in a custom or store-bought kitchen island that’s proportional to your space and features open-air shelving to store your everyday dishes and kitchen essentials. Not only will the kitchen island bring beauty to the space, but it will create easy-to-reach storage and extra counter space for dining and prep work alike.

Breezy Baking

Make baking a breeze with streamlined cookie sheet storage. Instead of stacking your baking sheets and cupcake pans horizontally, install a pull-out drawer in a lower cabinet and use a metal rack organizer that lets you separate and store the pans vertically. This allows you to pull out your go-to pan without having to pull five additional baking sheets and a pasta pot (or two) out of the cabinets to reach it.
