Whether your home is a new one or an older property, countertop space is the one part of a kitchen we never seem to have enough of. Sometimes the problem is that the countertops are divided into many small sections—okay for small tasks but not
for, say, serving dinner for six. Then, of course, there’s the problem of clutter. We’re all guilty of filling our countertops with spice racks, storage jars, the kettle...a toaster. Suddenly, we can’t see the wood—or granite—for the trees.
If you’re desperately trying to reclaim your countertops, consider these space-saving ideas:
- Hang wicker baskets from the kitchen ceiling to add charming additional pockets of storage space to your kitchen. Just make sure they don’t hang in high-traffic areas.
- Install a hanging pot rack to free up valuable cupboard space.
- Buy a cutting board large enough to act as a sink cover to instantly enlarge your work area.
- If your kitchen has a windowsill, utilize it for smaller items that currently clutter your countertops, such as spices or cookbooks.
Once you’ve reclaimed your countertops, chances are your backsplash will once again be the centre of attention. Maybe you’d like a new backsplash to match your new, spacious kitchen, but you think you can’t afford the time, money or mess that comes with installing a new backsplash.
