We think most homeowners would agree when we say that having a small bedroom or a tight living area is nothing compared to having a cramped kitchen. Since it is a space for prepping meals and entertaining, it should be comfortable and inviting. To make life in your cooking corner a little easier, here are some remodeling ideas that can help you save a few inches of space: 

Whether you have a floating island or a short countertop, make the most of it by transforming the end into a mini shelf. You can utilize it as storage for dry ingredients, shot glasses or other small kitchen essentials. 

A pull-out knife block next to the gas range can be very handy. Aside from saving counter space, you no longer need to walk far to reach your cooking tools. 

If you don't have room for a proper kitchen cabinet, consider having a built-in piece. Just like having your tools within reach, cooking will be a lot easier if you have easy access to your favorite spices as well.

Chopping fruits and veggies will be easy as pie with a pull-out cutting board. To make it even more efficient, convert the drawer underneath into a bin—all you have to do is push the peels down a hole! 

RL Tip: Don't forget to keep the board clean all the time to avoid mold and bacteria build-up. A quick wipe down with warm soapy water after every use should do the trick.
