16 Space-Saving Tips for Bakers With Small Kitchens
Your spices are lost deep in the cabinets, your Silpat is hidden underneath layers of baking sheets, and where is that measuring spoon?! Listen, we’ve been there. It’s tough. It’s called tiny kitchen problems, and while all your baking tools may fit (sort of), making a small kitchen functional for hardcore baking is another story. We tackled the living room, but this next post of our small space series is focused solely on how to organize and fix up your small kitchen to suit your baking needs. Read on for our space-saving tips below!
1. The Hang of It: For a pretty, bohemian display, hang your large cooking utensils, pots and pans that are normally hard to find in the cabinets. Fair warning: Your takeout delivery person might miss you, because you’ll def start cooking and baking more often. (via My Domaine)
2. Pastel Oven: If your tiny kitchen is mostly white, bring in brightly colored accent pieces — like this blue pastel oven — to create visual interest. (Photo via Vintage House Daylesford)
3. Go Bright: Rugs aren’t just for the living room. Create a pop of color in your kitchen with a bright rug in front of the sink. It will make cleaning all those mixing bowls that much better. (via Apartment Therapy)
4. Behind Closed Doors: Use hooks behind cabinet doors to hang up your KitchenAid pieces. Also, clear containers work wonders to help bakers easily see which ingredients are where. (via Julie Blanner)
13. Color Coordinated: Color coordinating items on your shelves can help your kitchen feel less overwhelmed with stuff, so you can focus on the important things (like baking). (via Loyalimo)
16. Above and Beyond: Take advantage of storage space above your kitchen cabinets. Put items that you don’t use as often in decorative boxes and simply pull out a stepping stool when you need to grab something from up high. (via New York Times)
