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.
You‘re making potato salad for a picnic. In the next 15 minutes, you‘ll drain fresh-cooked potatoes, peel and grate hardboiled eggs, chop onion and celery, and mix a tasty dressing for your salad — and you‘ll do it all using the natural components of the kitchen‘s sink/cutting center.This center‘s focus: washing, chopping, draining and preparing food. Its designated area: the sink and a counter area next to the sink. Storage for this center can include the counter, sink storage areas, a drawer and cabinet space.
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.
Professional organizer Kate S. Brown, CPO, owner of Impact Productivity believes small kitchens are spaces that can work, as long as you have a place for everything off the counter, leaving elbow room for the cook. "Otherwise making dinner becomes a stressful obstacle course punctuated by the crash of something being knocked off the counter," says Brown, who suggests putting your walls to work by storing your nicest pots and pans on pegs.
