How to Maximize Your Kitchen Counter Space, Anchorage, Alaska

Custom countertops provide a flat surface that is unique to your home and taste. However, not every kitchen has a lot of space, and it’s critical to make use of every inch to keep the room clean and uncluttered. Here are a few tips to get everything under control and make the most out of your space.

4 Ways to Take Full Advantage of Kitchen Countertops 

1. Unclutter

Many countertops become home to items that are rarely used. How many kitchen items do you use daily? Place these items front and center in the cabinets on a shelf that is easy to reach. For example, the toaster and blender take up a lot of space on the counter; even if you use them daily, put them in the cabinets to clear off some valuable square footage for food preparation.

2. Rearrange

For example, you can move cabinet shelves to fit items more snugly and gain extra room to keep the custom countertops clear. Consider taking a look at your storage and group like-sized items together, so you can move around the shelving to better use the space.

3. Hang Items

Many kitchens could benefit from taking advantage of dead wall space. The open spot above the island could be a perfect area to hang pots or pans. This will free up room in the cabinets, so you can move clutter out of sight.

4. Add Storage Elsewhere

Items often end up on custom countertops when there’s no more cabinet space. If your home is lacking in this area, consider keeping nonessential kitchen items in other rooms of the house. For example, you might place a slow cooker and extra dishes on a bookshelf in the basement or garage. They’ll be easy to reach when you need them, without taking up spots in the kitchen that could host other items that you use more often.
