Designing the kitchen of your dreams is closer than you think! Our designers at Emily’s Interiors created a list of the easiest and best ways to maximize your kitchen for optimal storage and space. From adding an island, to hiding appliances, we can keep your kitchen clean and creative with these home hacks.

Adding an Island

One of the best ways to incorporate more storage in your kitchen is by adding an island. Not only does an island add counter space for the chef in the family, but it increases the amount of cabinet space for the handy home organizer. No matter the size of your kitchen, an island can be the perfect solution. Want a large island? Consider adding barstool seating for enjoying quick meals, lounging frequent guests, or both! Have a smaller space? Portable islands are a versatile option for style and function!

Customizing Your Cabinetry

In everyone’s dream kitchen, there would be enough storage for any appliance. Good news is, you can customize cabinetry in any kitchen, making way for more space. Whether storing spices, blenders, warmers, or other miscellaneous appliances, there’s a storage option available. Custom cabinets can clear off your counter and be tailored to any and all of your family’s needs. Even needs that include additional charging stations!

Creating a Coffee Bar

Coffee bars are just another beautiful way of saying “Good Morning,” and who doesn’t want an aesthetic wake up call? No matter if you take your coffee black or with cream and sugar, a coffee station is a perfect place to showcase your barista accessories. Coffee bars can be displayed on counters or on wheels, giving you the flexibility to move it wherever your heart desires.

Cookbook Boutique

For the home chef, cookbooks can crowd your kitchen when there is no proper place to store them. By maximizing the current kitchen space you have, you’ll be surprised how many ways there are to relocate your cookbooks. One of the easiest ways to make more counter space is to mount storage on the walls. Some wall storage options include floating shelving, wire baskets, or a cute painted book rack. If wall storage isn’t for you, even using a fun dishrack to organize cookbooks on the counter is a great way to tidy up the space!
