How to Maximize Space in a Small Kitchen

Wishing for more space in your kitchen won’t get you very far. It’s all about working with the space you do have. And we have some tips to help you manage your space accordingly!

De-clutter your counterMove your paper towel holder behind closed doors! Don’t worry, no skills are needed to install this – the holder simply clips right onto the cabinet door and holds itself in place. A coffee cup rack next to your coffee machine works wonders too!

Free up some cabinet space – Consider installing a ceiling mounted rack with a built in light fixture. This way you are able to hang glassware like wine glasses or lightweight pots and pans over head, without sacrificing cabinet space or light!

Add some shelving space – By inserting wire racks in your cabinets, you can really maximize space. With different heights and widths to choose from – you can keep different sized dishes and bowls stacked right on top of each other.

Install a pull out pantry – A slim pullout pantry can be installed in even the tightest of places. Keep all jars, bottles, and cans between appliances or other cabinets – while still conveniently reaching the items in the back!

Open up the room – Remove your kitchen door or better still – have the kitchen opening widened or a wall removed. This will open up more space to add additional functionality – think rolling island/cart that can be moved into place when extra counter space is needed or stored away if unused.

Top Cabinetry Trends for Your Kitchen

If you feel your kitchen has lost it’s wow factor, consider updating its cabinetry! Whether you are planning on a total remodel or just want a make-over that doesn’t break the bank, new cabinetry can easily transform a tired-looking kitchen.

See below for some cabinetry trends you could do now – and still love down the road: interior custim kitchen

Mix and match. Homeowners are looking to go outside of the box, by mix and matching the colors of their cabinets. Doing so helps break up the monotony and can become a pivotal design piece.

Efficiency. Aside from color, many homeowners look for cabinets offering enough storage capacity as well as functionality. Cabinets now offer storage options like pull out trays, bread boxes, or narrow spaces to store cookie sheets or muffin tins.

Glass front cabinets. Open shelving or glass front cabinets give the eye a break from wall to wall cabinetry. Try adding a few glass inserts to display your favorite dishes while giving your kitchen a bright and airy feel.

Hide and seek. Feel like certain appliances in the kitchen are an eye sore? Give your kitchen a unified look by installing cabinetry to hide appliances.

Still looking to zero in on a style you love? Give our kitchen remodeling division, 5 Day Kitchens of Southern Colorado, a call. With our unique design and selection system and a dedicated professional kitchen designer at your side, you can confidently navigate the process in a fraction of the time.

Think about it, how much time is wasted in your life looking for things you have misplaced? Research has shown on average, people waste as much as an hour a day – 15 days a year due to disorganization! Enter Get Organized (GO) Month – the perfect way to start the new year.

Thanks to the National Association of Professional Organizers, Get Organized Month has been around since 2005 – working to increase public awareness of the importance of being organized. Start off 2015 clutter free with these tips for organizing your kitchen:

  • If your kitchen allows, hang pots and pans overhead for extra space.
  • Eliminate search time! Stash pantry items in the see-through pockets of an over-the-door organizer.

Kitchen and Bathroom Remodeling Trends for 2015

iStock_000043738514_Large

According to an Angie’s List survey – homeowners plan to go big in 2015, especially where their bathrooms and kitchens are concerned. Here are some of the top trends to keep an eye on this year:

  • Walk-in Showers – Homeowners are looking to ditch the bathtub and instead install walk-in showers with large rain head faucets and handheld sprayers.
  • Free Standing Tubs – For those still wanting a place to relax while bathing, freestanding bathtubs such as the contemporary basin style or antique clawfoot tubs are front of mind.
  • Gray is the New Beige – Walls, cabinets, and tile are all going gray scale. From kitchens to bathrooms, we’ve seen this trend come into play in the last few months and expect it to continue.
  • Stainless is Still King – For kitchen appliances, stainless steel still holds the crown. Only reason consumers may opt out of stainless is if they want custom made fronts that match the kitchen cabinets.
  • More Closet Space – Consumers are shopping more and increasing the size of their wardrobe. Most look to remodel their master ensuite to hold a large walk-in closet.

If you’re looking to renovate your bathroom or kitchen this new year, contact the experts at Patterson Plumbing & Heating. Our bathroom remodeling division, Re-Bath® of Pueblo, and kitchen remodeling division, 5 Day Kitchens, will work with you to ensure your new remodel meets all of your family’s needs.

Make the Most Out of Small Kitchen Space

A small kitchen has its advantages – everything is within arms reach, its cozy, and there’s not a lot of counter space or floor tile you need to scrub clean. However it also can be tough making things NOT feel cluttered.

Make the most of your small space while adding beauty to your kitchen with these creative ideas from Better Homes and Gardens:

1 (1)

  1. Hanging storage – Keep bulky pots and pans hung overhead and everyday items in reach by attaching them to your backsplash. Now you’ll never replace that 1/4 teaspoon again.
  2. Create a sliding spice rack – Ditch the lazy susan and utilize a handy pullout cabinet to store spices, oils, and herbs within arms reach.
  3. High storage – Top a window or doorway between rooms with a wide ledge for storage and display.
  4. Use chalkboard paint – Whether on the back of your pantry door at the end of a row of cabinets – utilize this space for jotting down notes and grocery lists all while adding some design to your kitchen.
  5. Creative counter space – Stow and go solutions are a must in a small kitchen space. Consider adding a rolling cart that stays tucked away under a center island to provide additional workspace as needed. Bonus it can be wheeled throughout the kitchen for where you need it, when you need it.
  6. Wine storage – If you have a tiny, narrow cabinet – remove the door, add some small shelves and viola! You have the perfect spot for storing extra wine bottles

How Dirty is Your Kitchen?

Dirty dishes in kitchen sink

Did you know, the dirtiest place in your home is actually your kitchen? Think about it, most of the food we prepare and consume happens in our kitchens – and where there is food, bacteria are sure to follow. From stomach unsettling bacteria to everyday cooking grime – the dirt is everywhere.

Follow these tips for making your kitchen squeaky clean:

  • Disinfect Your Sink! It’s your go to place for washing dishes and hands – but it’s also the dirtiest spot in the house. The sink is an easy breeding ground for E. coli and salmonella. Stop that bacteria in its tracks and disinfect it with a dishwashing soap, lemon, and baking soda combo until it shines.
  • …And the Drain – Just because you’re washing food and soap down the drain doesn’t mean it disappears. Often times food will stick inside and thanks to the constant moisture – germs are thriving. Pour a mixture of baking soda, salt, and water down the drain. Then flush it with hot water for 30 seconds. Bonus – you’ll also be eliminating any clogs.
  • Soak Your Faucet – Take the filter screen at the tip of your faucet and soak it in a diluted bleach solution every week to kill off bacteria. Just remember to let the water run through it for a bit after its finished soaking.

Cleaning Mistakes You May Be Making

Woman Cleaning Kitchen Countertop

When cleaning your home, common mistakes can muck up even your best efforts. Taking a page out of this month’s Real Simple Magazine, use these tips to save you time and trouble:

  • Placing all utensils in the dishwasher facing the same direction – Placing forks in point up is fine, as it prevents the tines from bending. Spoons and knives however tend to easily fit together – which prevents a complete clean. Next time try alternating some up and others down.
  • Spraying cleaner directly on a surface – Every once in a while this is acceptable, but should really be saved for extremely dirty surfaces. Spay the formula onto a microfiber cloth instead! Wipe-downs done this way require less solution, cutting down on residue buildup.
  • Putting a rinsed toilet brush right back in the holder – Moisture breeds bacteria! Put the brush between the toilet seat and the base of the toilet to allow it to drip dry for 10 minutes. Then feel free to return it to the holder.

Small Home Improvement Projects for Big Changes

Kitchen

Itching for a change this season? The good news is it’s within reach. There’s no need to take on a major home improvement project (if you don’t have the time, resources, or even desire to) to make a significant difference.

Whether you are getting ready to sell your home or just want to jazz things up for your own enjoyment – here are some strategies to consider:

Give appliances a facelift – Are your kitchen appliances all mixed and matched? Stainless steel this, solid white that. Consider ordering new doors or face panels for them to keep everything on the same spectrum.

Give your cabinets a makeover – Select new cabinet hardware not only for your kitchen but bathrooms as well! Add towel bars and robe hooks to that list and you’re ready to go. Feeling a bit more crafty? Add some molding to give your cabinets a brand new look.

Improve your storage – Old homes in particular are known for their lack of closet space. Add some laminate systems or storage units to bedrooms, pantries, and entry closets to maximize your space. Also, take advantage of any unclaimed wall or corner space with open shelves to keep certain items within reach.

Restore your floor – With regular exposure to dirt, dust, and constant traffic, your floor may start to look dull and distressed. Clean and polish with a product specifically designed for your floors, or with some of the natural products listed here.

Shed some light – Light fixtures can go a long way in soothing and upgrading a space. An interesting pendant or chandelier can instantly boost a room’s sophistication. There are many inexpensive but eye catching fixtures on the market sure to suit your home/room’s needs.

These small home improvements can quickly make some big changes. If any of your plans include appliance repairs or other plumbing services – leave that to us. Contact the experts at Patterson Plumbing & Heating –  (719) 554-4922 today!
