Not all of us were blessed with large kitchens inside even larger homes. In fact, most of us have to deal with an average kitchen size of just 10 square metres, and some of us even less than that. So just how do you make sure you optimise the little space that you do have available? Well, you could read this article for starters!

We have gathered a list of 10 kitchen hacks that will change your life and leave your kitchen feeling more open and organised. Come with us and find out how to make your life just a little easier!

Take accessorizing to the next level with this ingenious cutting board!

Pint-sized kitchens don't often have a lot of wall space, but even in the smallest of spaces, you can fit at least one shelving rack. Storing spices and cutlery has never been so fashionable and unique – everyone else has cupboards, right? 

Hanging out

With limited space in the kitchen, the less clutter, the better, but you can still enjoy some great pieces of statement lighting. These strung up glass jar lights are kept high up, neatly out of the way, and provide a quirky touch.

What about lighting in the dining room? Take a look at these 6 amazing ways to choose the perfect lighting before redesigning your space.

Organisation even in the smallest of places

It's amazing how many utensils we gather over time, and even more amazing how easily they clutter up a kitchen and take up space! Similar to the pull-out cutting board, you can have a pull-out cutlery drawer that organises your silverware so perfectly, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it.

Size isn't everything

Have you dreamt about a kitchen island in your home but thought you didn't have the space for it? Searching for interesting and out of the ordinary designs might prove rather helpful. This standard rectangular kitchen island may be too blocky for your space, but perhaps a curvier model might suit your kitchen better.

Who needs cupboards?

This wall mounted open shelving system provides the perfect amount of storage and decoration to any small kitchen–they hold just what you need without being overpowering and distracting from the rest of the room.

Sleek storage

One thing a tiny kitchen should never be without is adequate storage, and who would want to skimp out on this clever design! Forget having an entire room dedicated as pantry space, just stick your non-perishables in the pull-out units next to the oven.

Work smart, not hard
