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!
Cork flooring in the kitchen can be a lovely rustic aesthetic to your home, plus with its sustainability factor, cork is a lovely choice instead of wood. Cork trees regrow every nine years, while trees such as maple take up to 30 years or more to replenish, thus using them are kinder to the environment. In the kitchen, cork works well when set against modern colors, such as lime green. They provide the perfect background for a bit of color saturation. Although it might not be considered eco-friendly at first glance, mounting your kitchen faucet to the wall can make a huge difference in the layout of the room. It allows for more space, which is especially advantageous in smaller kitchens. This maximizes your efficiency, allowing for more people to work at the sink simultaneously, which can also save you water.
This is a really great idea for saving space in the kitchen – a drying rack that utilizes the otherwise wasted space between the back of your sink and the backsplash. This one is wisely made out of bamboo so it can withstand water association for longer periods of time without warping or growing mold. For those awkward long, narrow boxes that hold things like aluminum foil, wax or parchment paper, plastic freezer bags, and other kitchen essentials, a rack on the back of a cupboard door might be just the trick. Store them vertically to provide best access and efficient usage.
A little retro meets industrial meets vintage with some bar stools. This can create the perfect transition between two seemingly disparate spaces, if that’s what you need. If natural, earthy tones speak to you in general, then keep this look going in your bar stool choice. There are plenty of beautiful neutral bar stools out there…and you’ll know that, with its being neutral and all, you will love it in your home. Nothing blends in quite like acrylic, and bar stools made this way are no exception. This adds a sleek, contemporary, almost commercial feel to the bar space. Upholstered seats are, as a general rule, certainly more comfortable than their non-padded counterparts. But there are pros and cons when considering upholstery on a seat that sees more than its fair share of staining potential.
