Get more storage. In addition to creating more counter space, an island is also a way to add more storage and avoid kitchen clutter by using drawers, cupboards and shelves. This is beneficial especially if appliances take up a lot of cabinet room, or if you’re looking for a unique way to showcase certain items by using open shelving. Store dishes and pots within reach or keep less frequently used appliances out of the way. Another option is to use open shelving to display cookbooks or other items.
Planning an efficient path like this through your kitchen, and based on the way you and your family use your kitchen, will streamline your life in ways you hadn’t even imagined. Those little details can add up to a big relief when you aren’t bumping into things and constantly moving back and forth to prep all your meals.
Don’t forget kitchen storage. Even if you have a small kitchen, you can remodel in such a way as to give you the storage you need to maximize space. Don’t have a shelf tall enough to hold that electric stand mixer? Make one! Custom storage and cabinetry can free up counter space and help you cook more efficiently.
This is still a tried-and-true tip, but one size doesn’t necessarily fit all. Think about the appliances that you personally use the most often. Should your “Golden Triangle” be a perfectly even, or equilateral, triangle? Or should your two most used appliances be located closer together while the third could be a bit farther away?
