Big Solutions For Small Kitchens

Kitchen Remodeling, St. Louis, MOSure, you might not have space for a pantry or a kitchen island, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make the most out of your small kitchen space. The good news is that there are lots of ways you can increase storage and workable prep room in your tiny kitchen. When it comes to small kitchen remodeling in St. Louis, MO, creativity is key. It’s possible to maximize even the smallest kitchen space with these clever ideas that prove sometimes less is more. Plus, you can do so without sacrificing style.  


The right interior designer and some DIY small kitchen hacks will help turn your small kitchen into a space you enjoy cooking in.

  • Portable Kitchen Cart – A kitchen island on wheels is the perfect way to add prep space when needed while allowing you to move it out of the way when you aren’t using it or need more room for dinner guests.
  • Tiered Shelving – Utilize all of your wall space by stacking open shelving to hold dishes, glassware, small appliances, or spices.
  • Hanging Pot Rack – Hanging pots and pans from the ceiling frees cabinets of bulky items that are tricky to organize.
  • Extra Cabinet Space – If your cabinets don’t go all the way to the ceiling, you’re wasting good storage space by not using that prime real estate. Store extra items you don’t need to access often, like special-occasion serving platters or even extra pantry supplies, in attractive baskets.
  • Storage Outside the Cabinets – When you have cabinets that don’t butt up against a wall, you’ve got square footage of bonus storage space. Hang a pot rail, install a corkboard, or add shelving.
  • Turn Your Stovetop Into Counter Space – During dinner prep, your stovetop likely isn’t being used. Create a bonus counter space with custom cut cutting boards.
