Ways to create more counter-space in your kitchen

It’s fair to say that your kitchen is one of the busiest spaces in your home. Used to socialise, indulge and of course, cook up a storm, it’s an environment that should be functional, spacious and inviting.

However, not everyone is lucky enough to have a large kitchen space, meaning worktops can often become messy and cluttered. The good news is that there are lots of ways that you can optimise the counter-space in your kitchen, especially if you’re working with a small space.

We’ve created a helpful guide outlining ways to create more counter-space in your kitchen so that cooking and cleaning is a breeze. We hope you find it useful.

Appliance Storage

If the majority of your kitchen appliances are taking up space on your countertop, why not look at storing appliances such as your microwave and toaster elsewhere in your kitchen?

For example, there are lots of ways that you can integrate your kitchen appliances into your storage units and other cupboard space, allowing you to free up much needed space and enjoy clutter free worktops.

Pull out surfaces

When it comes to kitchen design, the possibilities are truly endless. And there are a whole host of space expanding solutions that will allow you to optimise your available space.

A great way to extend your counter tops is to invest in some pull out surfaces. These fit underneath your permanent countertops and are a great way of adding additional work space at varied heights, as well as in the most un-expected areas of your kitchen.

Wall Storage

Your kitchen space is home to all sorts of pots, pans, appliances and utensils, and if you’re working with a small space, it’s easy to see how many of these items end up cluttering your countertops.

Instead, why not move all of your utensils, pots and pans onto your walls. There are lots of shelves and other innovative wall storage solutions that will allow you to maximise all of the available space in your kitchen.

Cutting board

You can optimise the functionality of your kitchen by adding multi-purpose food prep solutions that will make your life a whole lot easier.

For example, investing in a cutting board that fits over your sink is a great way of adding movable workspace to your kitchen. These are available in most home ware stores however, if you’re renovating your kitchen, some companies will make one for you.

Of course, there are lots of other innovative storage solutions that you can use to help to free up work and food prep space in your kitchen.

From counter and drawer organisers through to stacking shelves and storage baskets, it is possible to create a space that is clutter free, organised and most importantly, stylish.
