Are you try to figure out how to best optimize the space in your kitchen before you go ahead with your York kitchen remodel?

You can approach your remodeling project with space-saving in mind in order to maximize the efficiency of the space you have. And C.C. Dietz can help you do it! In this week’s blog we’ll talk about some tips to remodel your kitchen and get more space than you ever thought you had, without changing the floorplan of your kitchen.
6 Space-Saving Tips for Your York Kitchen Remodel
Cabinets: Going Up
A good design tip to consider for your York kitchen remodel is cabinets that go all the way up to the ceiling. Often, the space on top of cabinets is wasted, so why leave any space there at all? Shift this space inside the cabinet so you can use it for more storage, so your small kitchen will be less cluttered.
If space and design constraints would make it hard for a cabinet door to swing out in a certain location, consider sliding, pull-out cabinets. A great place to apply this concept is with kitchen trash cans, which can easily be slid in and out of view instead of living in a corner and taking up space.
Move Seats Under the Island
One design trend that both looks nice and is incredibly practical is to extend the island countertop out and over the seating for the island. This gives you a space to store the seating and prevents it from being stuck out in the middle of the floor.
Hang Up Pots and Pans
Because of their non-standard sizes, pots and pans take up more space in your kitchen cabinets. A great way to deal with this is to hang up pots and pans on a wall fixture as opposed to putting them in the cabinet. This gives your kitchen a cool vintage look and frees up cabinet space.
When it comes to creating the visual impression of a larger space, mirrors are your friend. Add mirrors to the front of your kitchen cabinets to make your small space feel bigger.
Lighter colors tend to give the impression of a larger space as well, so opt for white, gray, or other neutral light colors for your cabinets, etc.
