A shortage of counter space is one of the most common reasons for homeowners to remodel their kitchens. Your kitchen might become incredibly difficult if you don’t have adequate counter space.

To increase counter space, you don’t always need a larger kitchen, but you do need good planning and design. A gorgeous countertop is a must-have for every kitchen. They create relaxing and energizing environments for food preparation and dining. Let professional designers and remodelers take care of building the kitchen of your dreams. Your countertop visions, no matter how big or tiny, are possible with the diverse range of materials and designs they offer.

Here are a few ideas on what you can do to deal with insufficient kitchen counter space.

Use window sills for storage.

Most people put plants on their windowsills, and while this is aesthetically pleasing, you don’t have to stop there. You can utilize a deep kitchen windowsill to store cooking canisters and other items that clutter the counters. You can buy storage bins to put the items in so that you don’t see the appliances or whatever you’re storing, but instead see containers that match the decor/theme of your kitchen.

Consider using pullout cutting boards.

Adding a pullout cutting board to your kitchen counter is a terrific way to make the most of your surface space. These are also ideal for tiny kitchens since they provide additional counter space by utilizing a board that can be stored.

Create hidden storage.

Storing your bulkier objects somewhere else than the counter is one of the finest strategies to maximize your counter space. Making a knife block on the inside of your kitchen cabinets is one idea. Knife blocks are huge things that take up a lot of room on top of your counter.

Utilize wall space.

Fruit bowls and coffee bars are fun to make and attractive to look at, but consider how much counter space they take up. Place these objects or anything else you wish to add to your kitchen on the wall to create wall space.

Mount the microwave.

One of the larger kitchen appliances you’ll have on the counter is a microwave. This can be mounted under a kitchen cabinet or even built into a custom alcove. You will not be disappointed with the extra room gained by relocating the microwave.
