While small cooking corners are easy to maintain, there are days when we can’t help but wish for a bigger countertop, an extra storage nook, or even a bigger space where we can move around and finish cooking in minutes.

You may opt for a table or a mobile cart that you can place in a corner for storage, too. Here are noteworthy picks and how you can maximize each:
