Tips for Making the Best Use of a Small Kitchen Space

Instead of bulky cabinetry, consider installing shelving to maximize your small kitchen space!

The kitchen is one of the most used spaces of any home, so you want it to aesthetically pleasing as well as organized. When your kitchen is smaller, it can be difficult to make room for all of your belongings. Here are some useful tips for making the best use of a small kitchen space.

Wall Space

An important part of working with a small kitchen space is to make use of the wall space that you have. Instead of installing a bunch of bulky cabinets across your kitchen, consider investing in cute shelving or rod options. This will help to make your kitchen look more spacious and give you a different type of storage space.

Think Vertically

Instead of leaving a bunch of empty space above your cabinets, you can invest in custom cabinetry. With custom cabinetry, you can design your cabinets to extend all the way up to the ceiling and down to the floor if you’d like. This gives you a lot more storage space and also helps you to make use of every inch of your small kitchen space.

Breakfast Bar

If your kitchen is too small for a kitchen table, you might want to consider implementing a small breakfast bar instead. You may need to rid of some cabinet space to make room for this, but it can fit perfectly into your kitchen. This is a great way to maximize your small kitchen space and implement a cute, unique dining area.


Instead of using cabinets, consider replacing them with drawer space instead. This gives you extra storage space because the drawers will be built into the countertops that you already have. This also frees up the wall space so that you can add shelving above the counters and utilize both the shelves and drawers for storage.

No Handles

This may seem like a very small detail that wouldn’t have an impact on your kitchen space, but it’s actually really effective. Go with cabinetry that has no handles or ones that are very small and discreet. Bulky handles can really make your kitchen look cluttered and can also get caught onto your clothing and other items in a confined space.
