1. Roaming Kitchen Cart

Sometimes we don't have enough room for extra counter space along the walls. In this case, try a kitchen cart on wheels.This kind of cart is perfect to fulfill any extra necessities you're missing in the kitchen.If you need more storage space, then get a cart with lots of drawers. If you need more counter space, get one that has extra foldable attachments to allow for more flat surfaces. You could even use this as a dual-purpose dining table!

2. Tiered Shelves

Vertical space is vital to tiny homes, but cabinets often block your view and make the home feel even smaller. You want to optimize your home to give you the storage you need without crowding the area.Using tiered shelving instead of cabinets is an easy fix to this problem. Removing those cabinet doors opens up space and doesn't cut off your line of view. It allows more natural lighting to make its way through the home and feels less cramped.Don't worry, you'll still have plenty of ways to get that modern wood kitchen appeal!

3. Floating Spices and Herb

The problem with all the spices and herbs is that they take up a lot of flat storage space that you need for your pots, pans, and appliances.That's why hanging up all of your spices and herbs is an aesthetically-pleasing way to get the most out of your small kitchen design. It looks interesting while serving a vital purpose. Hang up all of your most-used ingredients so that they're easy to reach and save you a lot of space at the same time.Also, consider starting an indoor herb garden!

3. Stove Nook

An often underutilized area in a kitchen is the space under the stove hood. There's a surprising amount of space that is perfect for an extra shelf, cookbooks, or even a spice rack.When you install your shelving, pick something that small enough that it doesn't block the airflow around it. This way the stove hood still serves its purpose while providing you with that wonderful extra living space.
