As mentioned earlier, a splash of colour provides you with an easy yet effective way of bringing a beautiful yet bold colour into the kitchen. This is exactly what we see here with the splash of green. Green is great because it offers the ideal blend between calming yet energising qualities. If you want to bring blue into your kitchen but don’t want to go down the icy palette, this option is for you. This kitchen is classy, sophisticated and elegant. It has that traditional charm offered by the wooden features yet the blue ensures it is far from boring. If you want to bring bright colours into your kitchen without causing a headache, this is the option to go for. Opt for a white base and then bring pops of various vibrant shades into the equation. Fun, funky and fresh!
Usually the corner space in any room is wasted space and this may not be a big problem in the living room or bedroom but in the kitchen any inch of space is valuable. So take advantage of the corner space and install drawers or open shelves. If you want to keep the knives off the counter top and close at hand, you could have a custom-designed piece like this one. The knives are stored inside the counter top. Such a design comes with restrictions. The knives must be completely encased so the blades don;t interfere with the contents of the drawers. I find pullout shelves to be very practical. It’s usually very annoying to have to get a dish or a pan at the back of the shelf and this system makes things a lot easier. Pull-out spice racks are also very functional. They occupy very little space and they’re easy to use.
Take your organizing skills to the next level by adding some hidden compartments! The outgoing mail, cookbooks, recipe cards, shopping lists and everything in between can fit right inside and stay off the counters, making for a cleaned and revived kitchen! We love mixing compartments too. A vase, bread basket and even a serving tray can all come together to create a perfect place to organize your spices and most used ingredients, as well as utensils! Use whatever you like to organize, but keep within a monochromatic theme. This will enhacen the clean and fresh vibe but also give your kitchen a contemporary, fashion-forward air about it as well.
Maybe it’s a little more apparent at this time of year, in the thick of the holiday season when so much is happening in the kitchen (and with so many people, to boot!). But kitchen space is invaluable. No matter what style your kitchen is – traditional, contemporary or somewhere in between – and no matter how big it is, maximizing the space you do have is one of the keys of enjoying this holiday season. Saving space is really about making things easier, more organized, and less cluttered. In essence, making the most of not only your space but also the items within your space. Here are some pretty quick and easy, yet totally essential, ideas for you to incorporate into your kitchen. Most of them are so simple, you’ll wonder why you didn’t think of them sooner!
