Don’t let the size of your kitchen dictate how you prepare your meals. Here are some tips for making a small kitchen space work greatly!
Mount the Extra stuff on your wall:
The best way to make the maximum out of a small kitchen is to mount racks and shelves on the wall: A pot rack, spice rack, knife strip and shelves (for cookbooks or magazines) will save room. Mount mug hooks or a wine glass rack under a cabinet, and hang a caddy for aluminium foil and plastic wrap inside a cabinet door.
Rid your kitchen of the extra stuff
Whether your kitchen is big or small, the best practice is to de-clutter and organize your kitchens regularly. Toss anything you haven’t used in a year, along with items you’ve got in multiples.
Shop more often instead of bulk shopping
Skip the once-a-week bulk shopping trip and buy daily needs such as bread, cheese, meat and produce every few days, based on your whims and what’s available. Shop for the meal you are preparing and start the next day afresh.
Learn from the Pros
Restaurant chefs set up all ingredients ahead of time, which is called mise en place (French for “putting into place”). They also wash, dry and put away dishes as they go. Both strategies help keep a cook in a tiny kitchen from becoming overwhelmed as he or she works.
Ease the Messiness
Whether you have two full hands or 10 messy fingers, the Delta Touch2O Technology helps keep your faucet clean, even when your hands aren’t. A simple touch anywhere on the spout or kitchen faucet handle with your wrist or forearm activates the flow of water at the temperature where your faucet handle is set. The Delta TempSense® LED light changes color to alert you to the water’s temperature and eliminate any possible surprises or discomfort.
Remember, convenience is the key to a happy cooking experience!
