Living in tiny apartments with tiny kitchen can be really challenging, specially when we start our independent life out of our parent’s home. But along with the challenges, a micro apartment presents the opportunity to explore the space in alternative ways.
New dispositions, new methods to use dead spaces and new approaches to make the most of each square centimetre can even make even a small kitchen do the work of a much larger one.
Here is a list of possibilities to transform your tiny kitchen into the most prolific place in the home. Start thinking out of the box!
Dead spaces are available almost everywhere, so a pullout pantry cabinet can be a smart option. Don’t waste walls, make the most of them to store your favourite ingredients.
Shelves or wall cabinets are not the only option to store kitchen utensils. Find some hooks and rails to attach your pots, spoons, mugs, knives and many more to your wall. Play a bit with their disposition and you can create an art composition while you keep items within easy reach.
Integrate your chopping board into your countertop. Create a false top drawer that slides and reveals a chopping board, and why not its own dustbin? You can DIY by just adapting a current drawer.
Imagine a kitchen that is concealed to the eyes of any guest. Placing your kitchen inside a cabinet is the most functional and beautiful way to keep your tiny space organized and optimized.
Transform your countertop into a multitasking surface by merging it with your dining table or using the same as your chopping board.
Deep drawers are not used in all their capacity, so go for two-layer ones and organize all your utensils using each single inch.
Unfold them when you want to sit and have your meal, and fold them back when you do not need them anymore. You can simply conceal them into themselves or hang them up in the wall.
