make the most out of your kitchen design

Your kitchen is some of the most valuable real estate in your home. Whether you like to cook strictly at home or with the occasional dine-out meal, a kitchen is going to be one of the most important spaces in your home. If you have a smaller home, then it is especially important to maximize every square inch of kitchen storage space that you can! There are a few ways that you can make the most out of your kitchen design, and we have complied a few for you to consider.

First, focus on making the most of your cabinetry. Instead of stopping the cabinets at standard cabinet height, take them all the way to the ceiling for maximum storage space. Another thing that you can do is to choose custom cabinetry. While custom cabinetry comes at a slightly higher price, it also comes with the satisfaction of knowing there are no blank gaps between cabinets. Additionally, your cabinetry can be customized to make it useful to your own kitchen habits with handy storage solutions.

Second, look to the walls! Shelves on walls, magnetic knife racks, and small spice racks can free up much-needed space in cabinetry. Additionally, don’t neglect the wall space around your fridge. You’d be surprised at how many items you can fit in a narrow, pull-out cabinet around the fridge or on the top of one.

Finally, get expert help in your design. A great kitchen designer can ensure that your kitchen design is making the most of the space your kitchen has. For kitchen design help here at McMillan Millwork & Joinery, please give us a call today.
