For those who enjoy cooking, a small kitchen can really be a problem. The kitchen usually has piles of appliances, dishes and other tools that are often used by skilled chefs. These appliances typically take up a lot of space, so that the kitchen should be really well designed.
1. Make a hanging bar for pots
To save some space and make your pots always available when you need them, and you will need them every single day, make a hanging bar for your pots. You can make a hanging bar from the ceiling or simply use an empty space on the wall.

That way you can grab what you need while you cook. A bad side is you have to crouch every time you need something from the bottom shelf. In that case, you can make a high pantry cabinet and use the bottom shelf for less used jars.
3. Use every empty wall space for shelves
Empty wall space can be user for shelves. That way you can organize your dishes and appliances in the best way your space allows. With shelves, you can maximize usage of top wall area. There is always unused space below your cabinets, use that space to add shelve for spices. I am sure you will love that idea.
4. Smaller devices can save you some space
Many brands and companies now produce devices that are smaller than standard. Now you can save space by reducing the largest pieces in the kitchen (stove, fridge).
If you do not spend too much time in the kitchen you can consider using double burners. If you think better, when will you need all four burners at once? Slim dishwasher and slim fridges are easy to find, and they can satisfy all your needs.
5. Elements with space for kitchen appliances
Cabinets can be used to store kitchen appliances. That way you can save a lot of space on counter top. Customize shelves in the cabinets to fit your set of appliances.
6. Smartly choose colors for your kitchen
Colors also play a big role when it comes to the appearance of the small kitchen. White and bright colors will visually make the kitchen look spacious and attractive.
If you still choose to have a bolder style, use vibrant colors, even if only for a closet or ceramic tiles. Living in different colors can be a smart choice because color variation makes each piece looks isolated, but it is a good idea only for fans of various colors.
As far as material, select the one you like the most whether it was wood or metal. Worktop can even be made of marble, which looks really classy and chic. Always keep your desktop neat to have enough usable space.
7. Every corner can be used as a storage
Your kitchen corners can be used as a storage. For a small kitchen owners, this storage can be precious. To make that storage more assessable you can use lazy susans or smartly designed shelves. Store your rarely used pots there.
8. Fold down dining table
If you want to keep your dining table inside your kitchen and you are a lack of space, you can build a folding table. Hang it on the wall and when you don’t need it just fold it down. Folding tables can be found in a store or you can build your own.
