Apartment Living BlogDiy › What to Do When There’s No Countertop Space

If your kitchen is small, chances are you don’t have much countertop space to work with. This can make preparing meals really tough. But don’t throw in the towel just yet, ForRent.com can provide you with some helpful hacks for getting more counter space.

If you have a stove, using that stovetop can be extremely useful. Get some cutting boards and place them over the burners (just make sure the burners stay off). Suddenly you have your own personal countertop extension.

If you’re short on storage space, you can actually use a nearby windowsill for kitchen counter storage. Windowsills make great places to put your flour and sugar jars, for example.

Many people tend to forget that their cabinets often have space above them. That’s where you can place kitchen items that you may not use very often.

If those options don’t work, you can always install your own shelves above the countertop but below the cabinets. This can help free up a lot more countertop space for food preparation. Installing a folding shelf on the side of a cabinet can also act as a bonus space saver.

These are just a few kitchen space saving ideas you can try out. With a little ingenuity, you won’t have to worry about limited countertop space.

If you’re not interested in trying out these techniques and you’re ready to make the move to a place with more counter space, get started on your search for your new home now!
