Kitchen / June 13, 2018 /
Open shelving is another great way to make the most of a small kitchen. However, it must be kept minimal and tidy. Clutter on display is going to make the room feel crowded. There is an old saying of a place for everything and everything in it is place. Storage is essential to small kitchen living. If you can create dedicated space for items and activities it will make the space look, and feel, much bigger and you will be able to better utilise the space.
Add storage to a small kitchen, without consuming valuable floor space, by recessing a shelving unit into the wall space between studs. These recessed shelves, trimmed and finished to match the woodwork, blend with the architecture. If you do not have space within your kitchen, look for a spot near your kitchen, such as a breakfast nook or hallway, to implement recessed shelves.
