Like every detail in your cooking space, small kitchen furniture must be streamlined to fit the tight confines of the room. Maximize a minimal floor plan with seating and tables that suit your favorite room in the house without overwhelming it. The heart of every kitchen is the family table. Even in cramped quarters, the dining table, in any of its many forms, serves as a focal point. If you have an eat-in kitchen layout that can accommodate a traditional table, then be sure to pull out the measuring tape before choosing a table style. To prevent a boxed-in feeling, allow at least a 7-foot clearance for a table (3-1/2 feet on either side).
A rule of thumb to keep in mind when organizing a pantry or cupboard is to choose storage tools that will make your items visible and accessible. For example, a set of clear containers or jars to house dry goods, like cereal or grains, is a low-cost and worthy addition to any pantry. Other kitchen pantries and cupboards will benefit from hooks to hang utensils or pots out of the way and free up room for items that require shelf space.
In most kitchens, activity centers will overlap. A sink/cutting center — the zone for peeling, chopping and washing food — may sit cheek-by-jowl with the cooking center focused on the nearby stove. Drawer and cabinet space may be shared between centers, and so may the tools and items they contain. Don‘t worry! The focus is on function, not boundaries. So long as you can get the job done without taking a step, overlap between activity centers is the norm.
Storage solutions that require a little more of an installation process are also worth a look. Adjustable shelves, wire baskets that slide on rails and pantry drawers are just a few of the options available for more customizable pantry organization.
