Small Kitchen Design: Making Storage Work

Small kitchen designs make the most of what would otherwise be dead space and turn it into a storage masterpiece. Here are a few ideas you can incorporate into your own cozy kitchen space:

  • The Lazy Susan. Designed to fit into places that are typically hard to reach, such as corner cabinets, the lazy susan swings around to give you full access to the shelves. It can be as simple as one or two rotating shelves, or as elaborate as an entire pantry.
  • Appliance Garage. An appliance garage might not seem like a space-saving addition to your kitchen, but you might be surprised at how much roomier your countertops appear if the appliances can't be seen. The advantage of the appliance garage is a sleek, streamlined look that tricks the eye into thinking there is more space on your counter!
  • Hidden storage. Get clever with cabinets designed for smart storage. Schrock kitchen cabinets are a perfect example: They are designed to take advantage of every inch in your kitchen, such as pull-out pantries that fit underneath your sink, or cabinet doors that have their own storage tucked away behind the facing.

With innovative designs and clever thinking, small kitchen designs can offer more than enough storage to meet all your entertaining and cooking needs!
