You can have a simplified process no matter the size of your cooking space. With a few organization tips, you’ll come to love getting meals ready in your kitchen. Here are 5 ways to make more counter space in your tiny home kitchen.

5 Tips to Maximize Your Tiny Home Kitchen

When pressed for space, use the following ideas to increase your work surface area. Most of the tips below are for the DIY-savvy, but you may want to get professional remodeling help if DIY isn’t your thing.

  1. Make Burner Covers

The stove top takes up a lot of space in a tiny home kitchen, but you can make your stove go to work for you. You can inexpensively create burner covers to make a work surface out of your stove top. Check out this easy tutorial to make your own burner covers.

  1. Make Use of Drawers and Cabinets

Drawers can store plenty more than silverware and cooking utensils. Make use of drawers by storing things that are taking up counter space. Spices, pantry items, pot holders – store them all away to create more workspace.

Make your cabinets store even more by adding shelf stackers or under-shelf baskets. Take advantage of the space above your cabinets as well. Place any items that you use infrequently up high to leave room on the counter for the everyday items.

  1. Add Wall Shelves

Sometimes we love to have items on display, but they can take up too much room in a tiny home kitchen. If you’re pressed for space, add open shelving to display those pretty items. Even dishes and spices can go on wall shelves to make more space.

  1. Hang Pots, Pans and Utensils

An easy and decorative way to make more room is to hang items. Many cooking utensils have a space on the handle perfect for hanging. You can install a ceiling-mounted rack to hang pots and pans from, making them easy to locate and freeing up tons of cabinet space.

Additionally, replace your traditional knife blog with a magnetic holder. Store your knives on the wall to keep them off the counter. Just be sure to dry your knives completely before you place them on the strip.

  1. Use Your Sink as a Prep Area

Like the stove top, the sink often takes up too much workspace. You can also turn this into a prep area. Use a cutting board that is slightly wider than your sink to cover it and chop vegetables.

Create More Space in Your Kitch

Dinner time doesn’t have to be frustrating and chaotic. Make these simple remodeling tweaks and you’ll free up plenty more counter space to work with.
