Ask anyone if they could use more counter space in their kitchen, and the answer would likely be, “Yes!” Many people have a kitchen footprint that is limited for one reason or another. Here are three solutions with loads of options.
Whether you’re in need of more work space for prepping your culinary creations, or your goal is to be 100% clutter free from end-to-end, there are many creative options to fully maximize the space in your kitchen–even the hidden corner nooks.
You might not expect your kitchen sink to serve as a tool for organizing and prepping, but with tiered stainless sinks like the Kohler Prolific, you’re in for a surprise.
The stainless steel Prolific comes equipped with a bamboo cutting board that fits into the sink’s tiers to provide a sturdy prep area. The accompanying dishwasher-safe bin and colander also fit into the grooved sink walls to provide space for rinsing produce or soaking dishes. You can even use removable plastic grates to let dishes dry out of the way, rather than putting them in a cumbersome countertop dish rack.
You can constantly reconfigure the sink’s tools to your liking, while enjoying efficiency and loads more workspace! What’s more? The drain is
designed to more quickly handle disposal so you waste less water while rinsing. It’s also durable and very easy to clean. This sink doesn’t need an apron!
Have you ever wished you could blink your eyes and instantly find more surface area in your kitchen? Ultracraft’s super-functional cabinet accessories offer many alternatives to traditional kitchen challenges.
You can open a drawer to access a dishwasher-safe cutting board workspace and then close it away from site after you’re finished.
We know bakers tend to love their big, beautiful mixers, but might not always have the counter space to spare for this large appliance. If you have a love for baking, the UltraCraft Mixer Stand accessory will quickly become indispensable. Not only does the stand let you store your mixer, but it offers quick and easy access by helping you lift the mixer out of its storage spot. The stand is even strong enough to use as a surface while it’s in the up position. You can also use a specially designed pull-out drawer that sits under the mixer to store all your mixer accessories. Many wonder how they ever baked without these tools.
Other kitchen essentials are not quite as attractive as the mixer. When company comes, do you find yourself stashing away your unsightly drain plugs, sponges, brushes, or dish clothes? You’re definitely not alone. With tilt-out plastic or metal cabinet trays, you can keep it all available at counter level while decluttering the area around your kitchen sink. The tray’s exterior is concealed with the same finish as the rest of your cabinets. Sponges never had it so good!
You can also make a special home for your garbage or recycling receptacles, rather than leaving them in the open or using a shared space where you keep non-waste items. The corner recycling unit lets you keep multiple bins and spin to sort. Ultracraft’s hanging or floor-mounted trash bin accessories are their most popular, and for good reason. Two 43-quart trash bins fit into only 18″ of space. And a floating lid keeps odors in their place. You can free up a lot of precious kitchen space while better containing waste.
In addition to the classic Lazy Susan accessory for easy access to items in corner base cabinets, Ultracraft offers the Blind Base Pull Out for smaller out-of-the way nooks—no more bending, stretching, or crawling on hands and knees to get to what you need. This accessory makes perfect use of that nook and presents its contents to you with ease.
Top tip lists from organization experts often recommend having consistent places for putting items away. These kitchen accessories offer just that, while maximizing both storage and counter space in your kitchen.
