1. The Power of Recess

By recessing cabinets, appliances, or other aspects in your kitchen, you can create a larger space. When you recess storage into a wall you can create a more open layout.

2. Hang Your Cabinets Up High

In small kitchens, hanging your upper cabinets up higher will help your space feel like congested. You’ll lose a little bit of storage space, but it’ll make your kitchen feel light and airy.

3. Choose a Smaller Refrigerator

Free up some physical and visual space by choosing a smaller, counter-depth refrigerator.

4. Opt for Custom Cabinets

Choosing custom cabinets might be the pricier option, but this can go a long way towards maximizing your kitchen’s space. Planet Granite’s professional design team will be able to help you find the most flexibility with custom cabinetry, optimizing every square inch of space.

5.  Use Fewer, but Larger Cabinets

Using larger cabinets in your kitchen will help create a more uncluttered look. Maximize your space with more efficient deep drawers and corner cabinets with swing-out shelves.

6. Consider a Skinny Cooktop Island

If you have the right kitchen for it, a skinny cooktop island can create an open traffic path, opening up your kitchen. This is a perfect option for those who like to cook with family or friends.

7. Raise the Roof

If you have the option to, consider pushing the ceiling of your kitchen into the attic for a more airy space. This might not be a structurally, or financially, practical idea for everyone, but it might be worth considering for others. Having more vertical space can go a long way for storage and visual space.
