Home kitchens are arguably one of the most important parts of every home. For some people, the kitchen is the place where they want to be most of the day, from cooking to hanging out with friends. If you are planning on upgrading or remodeling your kitchen, here are some of the budget space-saving ideas for your kitchen.
Integrated kitchen bin
Integrated kitchen bins are one of the best solutions to space and waste problems. They are hidden in the bins, so they don’t get in the way and can be used easily to throw kitchen waste away. Now, you have plenty of options when it comes to integrated kitchen bins. One of the most popular options is an integrated kitchen bin 600mm, which is the right size for most kitchens. You can also choose the best design for your kitchen, from rustic to elegant.
Save some space with hooks
Arguably, one of the best ways to save some space in the kitchen is hanging everything that you might need. And you can easily hang your kitchen utensils by using hooks. You can also hang your aprons and cutting boards using hooks. Install some hokes in strategic places, and you are good to go.
Take advantage of the corners
Hooks are great for turning walls into storage space, but you can’t forget about the corners. I have seen some people struggling to find some space for their stuff in the kitchen, while their corners are left empty. Do you have one of those vintage wooden crates? Put one in the corner of the kitchen and use it to store jars, display plants, or other stuff.
I just can’t get enough of hanging kitchen utensils. If you don’t like the idea of using hooks, then what about pegboards? If you have walls that are flat and empty, you can easily install a pegboard there. One pegboard can hold a lot of stuff, from kitchen knives to frying pans. Get a pegboard that fits your wall, you can even get a huge pegboard if you want. Another great thing about a pegboard is flexibility. You can pretty much hang anything you want with it.
A fold-down table
Never think that your kitchen doesn’t have room for a table if you haven’t tried a fold-down table yet. A fold-down down table, be it on a wall, hanging off a bookshelf, or in front of a window, can work well in any kitchen. Fold the table up when you don’t need it and fold it down later whenever you need. Not to mention that a fold-down table always looks aesthetically pleasing and interesting.
Install little shelves
Speaking of empty walls, I bet you can find some narrow spaces where you can install little shelves. These narrow spaces could be between a cupboard and a wall, or anything, really. So why not use the space to store jars, bottles, etc.? This solution is great if you are willing to try some DIY.
Put things on top of your refrigerator
The top of your refrigerator shouldn’t be left empty if you need more space. You might be thinking that putting items on top of the refrigerator will make your kitchen look messy. The trick is only to put specific items there. For example, you can put only spices or sauces on top of the refrigerator. Perhaps, items that you think will look good to be put on display.
So, we have just touched on some simple space saving ideas here, I expect you can come up with some space-saving ideas of your own. Everyone’s kitchen is different and will require different solutions for space saving. So be creative and see how much space you can save in your own kitchen.
