There’s nothing quite like preparing a delicious meal in a beautiful kitchen. After all, your kitchen is where your family gathers to chat over bowls of ice cream and sneak spoonfuls of cookie dough. But if your kitchen is tight on cabinet and counter space, it can be a challenge to cook even the most basic of meals.


Your kitchen is the heart of your home, and that’s why it’s important to make sure you have enough room for everything from baking to sharing coffee in the mornings with your family. At The Construction Group in Maplewood, we specialize in home improvement projects including kitchen remodeling. In this post, we’ve put together our tip ideas for making your life easier in the kitchen.


1.      Add a kitchen island.

One of the most common complaints when it comes to kitchen space is not having enough counter space to work with. A kitchen island takes advantage of existing space, adding extra counter space in a place that would otherwise remain empty. But kitchen islands are useful for more than just counter space. They also make the perfect spot for everything from homework to working a puzzle together! And the added cabinet space underneath is the icing on the cake.


2.      Create better cabinets.

If your cabinets are simply open shelves, you may not be able to easily maximize their potential. We can work with you to find out what your family’s specific needs are and create better cabinet space to suit them. If you have pets, we can create a perfect solution for storing pet food and items. If you need a shelf that holds your plates, we can create one. The sky is the limit when it comes to custom cabinetry solutions.


3.      Take advantage of high spots.

If you’ve got unused space up high in your kitchen, consider installing additional cabinet or shelf space. This can be a terrific solution for storing items that are rarely used. If you’ve got a set of special dishes you only bring out for the holidays, consider creating a cabinet or shelf that’s specifically designed to display these items.


4.      Add a pantry.

Older homes can be as charming as they are beautiful. But they are also too often very short on pantry space. Consider converting a broom closet into a more functional pantry. Or add a small shelving area in your home that’s perfect for storing your dry food items.
