With nearly 20% of Americans living in an apartment or condo, there are more small kitchens out there than many may imagine. There’s no need to struggle with a cramped kitchen when some careful renovations can make the smallest spaces feel large. Here are four different ideas for making the most of a small kitchen.
Focus on a Big Sink
Large sinks may seem like they’ll take up valuable space that could go to countertops. However, standard-width sinks with deeper basins help hide dishes and messes to keep them from piling up on the counters. A farmhouse sink can make a small kitchen look larger while adding valuable organization space for dirty pots and pans.
Spray Away the Mess
Side sprayers are essential for rinsing off thick and sticky residues, which is a good idea even for families who rely on dishwashers. However, it’s not always easy to find the spare space for countertop-mounted sprayers. Try a faucet with a pull-down sprayer built into the spout. Pull-down sprayers save space while providing extra opportunities for cleaning both dishes and mess sinks.
Add a Pot Filler Faucet
Most articles about small kitchens recommend taking advantage of wall space and then end the advice with shelving or cabinets. Go a step beyond by bringing the plumbing into the walls too with the addition of a handy pot filler faucet. These faucets are mounted on the wall over a countertop or stove so large pots are easily filled in place so the cook doesn’t need to carry it sloshing across the room. A pot filler faucet is also convenient for getting a drink when space is at a premium in a busy small kitchen. The Restoration Wall Mount Pot Filler Kitchen Faucet is the ideal choice for any kitchen where space is at a premium. Its 20-inch reach is ideal for covering both a small stovetop and the counters to both sides.
