Before actually starting to move things around, you can do a proper kitchen cleaning to clear up some space for your ideas. Surely you have plenty of clutter and want to do something about it. Well, this is the perfect opportunity to clear two birds with one stone and put some order into your kitchen. If you don’t have the time to clean and organize your kitchen due to a busy schedule, you can hire a a local cleaning company that will be happy to send over a professional cleaner who will do a fantastic job cleaning and organizing for you.
- Try putting a new order of things in the kitchen. You can have fun with the places of everything, like for instance moving the counters to new locations. If you place them against the sink instead of around it, you will have more flow of motion while cooking as you will manoeuvre around the kitchen as you move from preparing to washing to cutting.
- Use some space savers like racks, shelves, and stands. A lid rack will free up an immense amount of space in your cabinets as it will take the sticking out parts of pots and will make for a more compact order in the cabinets.
- Adding a wine rack can make it very convenient when cooking with wine or entertaining guests.
- Add shelves or stands for all your herbs and spices and make them stand out, and you won’t have to go through the cabinets to look for the different containers. A few shelves here and there can do the same, or they can take your cookbooks for some advice or more options while cooking.
- Have you ever thought about moving the kitchen itself? It might sound like an out of the box idea, but what about having a kitchen instead of an attic? If you live in a house all you need to do is clear out that old attic and take the kitchen up to create your own personal space where you can cook in peace, free of your house’s everyday activity and disturbances. Of course you must follow local code ordinances and building codes before you proceed with this out of the box concept.
- You can add a bar to the kitchen and entertain your guests there instead of the living room. All you need is a nice counter and a few high chairs that bring even more options for an outlook.
- When browsing for new furniture, you can mix or match the colors or contrast the general colors of your kitchen – personalize it as much as you like.
These are but a few of numerous ideas that you could come up all by yourself if you put your mind to it. Only your imagination can place limits on all the things you can do to have a brand new and stylish kitchen.
