Not everyone has the luxury of being able to work with all the space they want in their home. Sometimes you may only have a small area to work with, which can be difficult without proper planning. This can especially be strenuous in spaces like the kitchen that require having multiple appliances, holding a lot of storage in regards to food, pots and pans, plates, and more. With the right creativity, you can make a small kitchen feel limitless. In this week’s blog, we’re going to show you how to make the most of a small space.
Smaller AppliancesIf you do a lot of cooking, whether that's with an oven or a stovetop but you don’t have a lot of space for a range, you're not quite out of luck. There are ranges as small as 24” in width that will accommodate your cooking needs. One of our favorite brands for these ranges is made by ZLINE and offers great quality at incredible prices. Although these ranges are smaller than other professional ranges, they do not lack in quality or customizability.
If you love to cook on a stovetop but don't have enough room to have an entire range no matter the size, you are still able to utilize drop-in cooktops, range tops, and induction cooktops. These styles of stovetops are a great way to still experience elevated cooking in a small space, without sacrificing high quality cooking products.
ZLINE makes a wide variety of cooktop products, including their Autograph Edition series of appliances. The Autograph Edition is a line of appliances that truly captures their slogan of ZLINE Attainable Luxury™. You are able to choose between base finishes of black stainless, DuraSnow®, and classic stainless, with accents of champagne bronze, gold, and matte black. You can shop ZLINE Rangetop and Cooktops at The Range Hood Store.
There’s no shortage of possibilities when it comes to saving space in the kitchen with cooking appliances. Another great appliance for saving space is the microwave. One style of microwave that can keep you from needing an entire oven, is a microwave oven. You’re able to cook with convection settings as if you had an oven and use standard microwave settings as well. This is a great addition when it comes to narrowing down appliances that you need versus want. ZLINE makes microwave ovens in 24” and 30” sizes, designed to fit your space, and is a great alternative to a standard microwave.
Another great way to save space with microwaves is to implement them into your cabinet space. This can be done with the microwave drawer, which sits flush within cabinetry, and opens like a regular drawer. These types of microwaves are made by brands like Forno, Forté, and ZLINE, which can all be shopped at The Range Hood Store.
A dishwasher is a great appliance that isn’t meant for cooking but you are still able to save space in your kitchen. You may think that a dishwasher may not be necessary for a smaller kitchen as it may take up too much space, but that doesn’t have to be true. Brands like Summit, Kucht, and ZLINE all offer smaller, compact dishwashers at sizes of 18” in width. This is a very reasonable size to be able to fit into any kitchen space. You can shop 18” dishwashers at The Range Hood Store.
Lastly, one of the other ways to make the most out of a smaller kitchen is to utilize the limited space you do have, to its full potential. This doesn’t mean having large fixtures or appliances that take up the whole kitchen, but rather efficiently using the space for several purposes. This can be achieved with the use of a multi-purpose sink that allows you to have a cutting board, a built-in colander, and strainer, along with all the other regular uses of a sink. ZLINE has their Garmisch sink in sizes as small as 27” in width with all of these capabilities. If you're really pressed on space and just need a small sink for the purpose of being just a sink, they also make kitchen sinks as small as 22” in width. You can explore all ZLINE Kitchen sinks at The Range Hood Store.
