My guide to making the most of your kitchen space

* PR post

Whether your kitchen is large and spacious or small and compact (like mine!), making the most of the square footage you have is key. Instead of leaving parts of your cooking space unused, here is a brief guide to help you max out the room you have available - so you can cook more efficiently, use every corner effectively and enjoy your little hub of your home every day:

Curved corner cabinets

While straight-edged cupboards may fit perfectly in some kitchen spaces, they might not be the ideal solution in yours. To ensure you’re taking advantage of your whole cooking area, you could consider going for curved corner cabinets. 

Unlike regular shaped cabinets, the absence of corners on curved shaped cupboards enables you to maximise the space you have available, meaning you have storage yet still a considerable amount of room to move around your cooking area with ease. 

It's all about curves in furnture design so you're kitchen will be bang on trend and you'll be amazed at how they create a sense of flow too, whether you have classic shaker or trendy copper kitchen units.

It’s important that your cabinets fit your cooking space perfectly, so it helps to enlist the help of a professional; no inaccurate measurements and all the hassle taken care of too! To find an expert that can help tailor your cupboards, you can visit Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets and other online kitchen specialist websites for assistance.

Shelving, racking and hooks

If you have any spare wall space in your kitchen, why not utilise it? From shelving, to racking, to hooks, there are a number of a simple yet highly effective ways you can get the most out of the space you have. 
For example, you could put up shelving or racking on your walls to keep items you need easy access to on a daily basis. I recently did this and it's made for a practical and attractive feature in my otherwise cramped kitchen.
Alternatively, you could attach hooks and hang your favourite pots and pans or utensils, or fix a rail to drape your tea towels and apron over. This storage hint is especially useful if your cooking area is on the smaller side, making it easier for you to organise your kitchen must-haves in a neat and tidy way. 
Pull-out pantry

A pull-out pantry is ideal if you’re keen to make the most of your kitchen - and my dream feature! This style of cupboard can be tailored to fit slim spaces, meaning you can maximise even the most awkwardly shaped nooks and crannies. Usually, they are designed with a pull handle so that they can be drawn outwards towards you, with shelving from top to bottom, providing you with a storage solution for your cooking essentials. Pull-out pantries are perfect if you don’t have the room to go full-size but you’d still like the extra storage and convenience that this style of cupboard provides.

Even if you’re lacking in square footage in your kitchen, making the most of the space you have available is simple if you make savvy design decisions. Even small kitchens have space you can unlock - trust me!
