Use the walls
Shelves , hanging furniture, coat hooks … When you don’t have floor space, you use your walls to declutter the room while keeping as much storage as possible. Today there are many ways to fix more or less heavy pieces in height in making a hole in the wall, if that worries you. All the more reason to declutter the floor and make the room more airy.
This may sound simple but it is not. In a small kitchen, any item that is out of place makes the room look sloppy. From kitchen utensils to a cutting board to your cookie jar, it’s imperative that you find a place to keep everything while keeping a clean place on the counter (otherwise, how do you expect to be able to cook? To avoid clutter in the kitchen, bring storage aids: pretty jars , baskets, bread box , pots, candy boxes … Tidying up will give you the impression of decorating.
Utensils at height
It’s not just furniture that needs to be hung. Knives, towels, ladles, sponges… Fix credenza bars to the wall to hang whatever you want and save space on your work surface. This can allow you to attach a magnetic bar for your knives or hang pots for your spoons and spatulas… The goal? Have your utensils close at hand and at eye level without taking up space on the work surface. Another tip? Do the same with the spices you use often!
