Small Kitchen Ideas to Create a Foodie Dream Space

Cozy kitchen designs can be fabulous. When upgrading fixtures or tackling a remodel, improve the efficiency of the space by installing sleek, stylish features with innovative functionality. With a little DIY know-how and inspiration, it's simple to use these small kitchen ideas to create a culinary dream space.

Choose a high-arc faucet

Is it troublesome to get juicer accessories, stock pots and pitchers under the current kitchen faucet? Upgrading to a high-arc style that swivels instantly takes out the guess work of making large kitchen accessories fit in the sink when washing and filling. For added luxury and cleanliness, choose a faucet with hands-free motion-sensing technology to keep germy fingers off levers and reduce water waste.

Indulge in a deeper sink

No space for a dishwasher in a galley kitchen? Invest in a kitchen sink with a basin large enough to submerge colanders, saucepans or blender carafes to easily soak away cooked-on foods and dried smoothie residue, making dish washing much easier.

Install a filtered water dispenser

This small sink add-on ensures a fresh consistent supply of purified water for cooking or drinking. A built-in filter eliminates the need for a large water cooler, space to store jugs of water, lugging water home from the store or refrigerator space for bottled water. Plus, filtered water just tastes better.

Get a butcher-block countertop

Install a wooden substrate on a small section of the kitchen workspace and it becomes a multi-tasking center. In addition to being able to slice and chop with ample room, hot dishes directly from the oven can rest on the wood without melting or scorching the resilient surface. Plus, butcher block adds a pro-kitchen vibe to the room.
