Love the idea of an eat-in kitchen but a large dining table just won’t fit in your small kitchen area? Try a drop-leaf dining table, ideal kitchen design for small spaces. They are truly Godsend and thanks to the hinged flaps that can be flipped up when you have an extra guest drop in. They can also be tucked in without any hassle when not in use. Additionally, the center of the table can be used at all times to serve as an extra prep space.

Go Big With Open Shelves:
Hate to try open shelving because dusting scares you away? Kitchen cabinets not only take up more space in a small kitchen but also limit space usage whereas open shelves do come with the possibility of increasing your storage options. It helps to make the small space look open and airy. Open shelves are actually easy to organize and are inexpensive. Install them and flaunt your pretty dishware.

Banquettes are ideal for cramped areas and make the most of the often unused spaces. These maximize seating options and the storage space beneath the benches provides ample space to store away serving platters, table linens and other dining accessories. A collection of comfy throw pillows makes the seating area comfortable and inviting.

Make good use of an empty corner with a wall mounted cabinet and transform the area into a valuable storage space. Conveniently store away canned good, spices and so much more.
Under-shelf Cup Hooks:
Make open shelving work harder by fixing cup hooks to the underside. Not only do mugs look lovely displayed this way, but you’ll also free up cupboard space for other things.
