In an ideal world, we would have all of the counter space we could ever need or ever dream of. But, let’s face it: we often find ourselves limited by the amount of space we have on our counters. From storing cooking utensils, to spreading out and making dozens of cookies for that bake sale, sometimes we just don’t have enough countertop space. Aside from that our countertop space is also limited by the size of our kitchen itself as well as the size of our appliances. 

So, how can you make the most of what you have when it comes to your countertop space? Here are a few tips from Taste of Home to help you out:

  • Use your wall space to store some of your kitchen essentials. For example, you can install a magnetic strip on your kitchen wall to store knives instead of keeping them in a bulky knife block. You can also use a pot rack to hang your pots and pans above your stove.
  • Be selective about which appliances you keep out on your countertops. If it’s an appliance that you’re using daily, such as your coffee maker, it’s probably worth the counter space it’s taking. However, if you only make coffee on occasion, you can store it in a cabinet to free up space on your countertop. 
  • Speaking of appliances, mounting your microwave is a great way to free up space on your countertops.
  • If you find yourself cooking a big meal that requires a number of dishes, stop to clean dishes as you go so that you can free up counter space for the next dish that you prepare.
