Get the most out of your Kitchen Space – Kitchen Ideas

Your kitchen can end up appearing cluttered, cramped and restricted, depending on the amount of junk and storage space you have. Smaller rooms can also have a cramped atmosphere if they aren’t planned out well. Today we take a look at ways you can enhance some elements of your kitchen to give you more breathing space.

Bright Surfaces & Lighting

Bright colours can certainly bring a spacious feel to your kitchen. When you have more light, you can create the feeling of also having more space. Using a combination of high gloss surfaces, you can manifest visual depth and make your bathroom appear both larger less uncluttered. However, if your kitchen is not adequately utilising storage, no colour scheme will solve the problem.

It’s Time To Organise!

If you’re finding it impossible to move freely around your kitchen without tripping over something, it’s time to prioritise your physical space. Let’s begin with the obvious. Most people have extra space above their fridges and cabinetry. When trying to find a place to store extra utensils or an ornamental vase, placing it above your fridge might do the trick. 

If you’re searching to find the space to tastefully store wine for instance, then why not place a mini wine-shelf on top of an unused fridge or cabinet surface? Maybe you’re one of those people who still have a growing pile of special offer coupons, flyers, letters and magazines occupying these spaces. Take advantage of higher surfaces to clear the way for a better and happier solution. This brings us to the next idea.


Before we realise it, we fill up our cabinets, presses and drawers to the brim with things we could certainly do without. Often there is simply too much cutlery, condiments and general mess of other things in your cabinets. Getting rid of anything you won’t need or miss will straight away begin to declutter your kitchen.

While decluttering and organising the room is a fantastic short term solution, it doesn’t fix the problem for everyone. Once you’ve removed all unnecessary pots, bowels and outdated cooking ingredients, there may still be a lack of room for the parts of your kitchen that matter. What if you still can’t seem to find the space, even after getting rid of the clutter? You need a real, long term solution.
