If you are living with a small kitchen, it might feel like you have to knock it down and start over to get the space you need. While we can certainly help you with a dramatic kitchen remodeling project, there are other ways you can help make your smaller kitchen feel much larger. Keep reading to learn about some of those ways and then contact Cabinet Magic at 800-570-4194 for help with cabinet refacing and many other remodeling services.

Make Sure You Are Using All the Area Around Your Fridge

Do not let the area around your refrigerator be wasted space. You might consider having shelves installed above it, or simply get some decorative baskets and use them to store miscellaneous items. If there is a space between your refrigerator and the counter, you could use this area to store pots and pans, cookie sheets, and other narrow items. Get creative but do not let that space go to waste.

Your Backsplash Should Be Doing Double Duty

A lovely backsplash is nice, but if you have a small kitchen then this space needs to also be functional. For example, installing a stainless steel pegboard allows you to both protect your walls from spills and splatters, but also keep your knives and other metal tools handy. You could also find a pegboard backsplash and hang up spoons, mugs, or anything else you can think of.

Invest in a Quality Folding Table

If you buy a high-quality folding table that is not an eyesore, you can open it up and use it as an extra counter when you need more room to make food. When you have people over for dinner, you can open it up and serve on it. However, the rest of the time, it can stay safely tucked away so that your kitchen appears larger and less cluttered.

Get Creative With Storage

We offer many drawer inserts that can help you make the most of your drawers, even if they are awkwardly sized or shaped. For example, make sure that your corner cabinets can be utilized by installing a lazy susan, or grab extending shelves that pull out so you can easily get at what you need. Do you have more pots and pans than you know what to do with? Hang them from the ceiling and make a display out of them.
