How to Maximize Your Kitchen Space
A kitchen update has been on our list for quite some time now. We keep going back and forth on designs but can’t seem to agree on the same thing. Our kitchen is on the smaller side so we need to maximize the space as much as possible. After brainstorming some ideas, I came up with a list ways you can maximize your kitchen space.
Add Extra Storage to the Tops of Cabinets
If you have unwanted space at the top of your cabinets add some extra storage space with smaller cabinets or shelves to store items you may not use as often and such.
Over the Door Racks
This idea can help save some space by installing it over a pantry door or any available door and and it doesn’t take up any extra space. You can store spices, packets or even cleaning supplies.
If you just don’t have the space for utensils or mugs, installing hooks is a great solution. You can install them under the cabinets, on the side of cabinets or even on an open wall.
If you have an open wall, this would be a good place to add shelving. You can store appliances and other items you may have on them. If you want to hide some items you can use a cute basket or crate to put them in.
Purge Your Kitchen Items
Sometimes kitchen appliances and utensils get the best of us and we tend to accumulate more than we need. Take a day and go through your entire kitchen to see what you can purge to create more room in your kitchen.
Choose Smaller Appliances
If you can choose smaller appliances, do so. While a 4-slice toaster may be ideal to have, it can also take up a lot of counter space. Choosing smaller appliances will free up counter space giving your kitchen a cleaner look having less stuff on the counter.
Choose a Counter Depth Fridge
A great way to maximize your kitchen space is choosing a counter depth fridge. It sits flush with countertops giving it that built in feel and look. We researched the new Bosch Counter Depth Fridge at Best Buy and instantly knew that is what we wanted. Being that our kitchen is on the smaller side this is the best option for us.. We already love and trust Bosch products so we looked at those first. A few of our favorite features of the Bosch counter depth fridge are the following.
Uses four innovative freshness technologies to keep your food fresher, longer: VitaFreshPro™ that has preset settings that automatically balance BOTH temperature and humidity, FreshProtect™ which absorbs naturally occurring ethylene to slow ripening, so produce stays fresher, longer, MultiAirFlow™ evenly circulates cool, fresh air to maintain consistent temperatures throughout the fridge, and AirFresh® Filter that absorbs even the toughest food odors, keeping your refrigerator and freezer air fresh. REQUIRED Disclaimer: *As compared to a Bosch refrigerator without FarmFresh System™. Results may vary among different foods.
Plenty of Room
With a large family I need all the room I can get and there is plenty to store two large side-by-side gallon containers each found on both sets of doors, three-tiered layered freezer drawer for frozen foods, full width chiller drawer for oversized platters, 21 cu. Ft. capacity and a FlexBar™ for wine bottles, condiments, eggs and more.
A water filter that reduces 99.9% of sediments that may be found in your water, including harsh elements like chlorine and chloramine.
Dual Compressors and Dual Evaporators
Efficient and precise cooling and humidity control, while significantly limiting odor transfer between the refrigerator and freezer, for the optimal freshness environment.
Built to Last
Made from the highest quality materials of internal steel back wall, the Bosch counter depth fridge is made to last so you know you’ll be getting your money’s worth.
Controlled From Your Smartphone
This is my absolute favorite feature of the Bosch counter depth fridge because I can use the Home Connect™ and adjust the temperature, lighting and run diagnostics from wherever I am giving me peace of mind. REQUIRED Disclaimer: **Connectivity and speed varies based on network and Wi-Fi levels.
I can’t wait to get started on my kitchen and create more space. Do you have anymore ideas you want me to add to the list?
