Whether you live in an average city apartment, a college dormitory or small but cosy home, chances are you have a small kitchen. And the challenge of having a small space is that it can be really difficult to organise.
But don't let a cramped kitchen get you down. We have come up with small kitchen ideas that can help you maximise kitchen space.
If you have a small space at the side of your fridge, then you can definitely use it for storing kitchen items. A roll-away pantry is a storage that you can build in the space between your fridge and the retaining wall next to it (or any space in your kitchen that is six inches wide.
The roll-away pantry can hold a lot of canned goods and other non-perishable items. Simply roll it out if you need to get something and roll it in once you're done. It's convenient and doesn't use too much space of your kitchen.
The Kitchen Island
You might think that you don’t need one because of the your kitchen's limited space but adding a kitchen island can be very beneficial.
