Make the Most of Small Spaces
Put Function First
Create space based on your personal habits. If you never eat in the kitchen, for example, remove the table to make way for
more clutter-busting, useful items, like a Pier 1 Imports under-cabinet glass rack ($12, pier1.com), and an Ikea Vurm wine rack ($10, ikea.com).
Create a Triangle of Efficiency
Make sure you can move unencumbered among the three key work areas: sink, stove, and refrigerator. An efficient work area
is made by installing an Ikea Värde base cabinet ($249, ikea.com) with drawers and a countertop that is 30 inches deep, 10 inches deeper than average.
Far from boring, this go-to neutral can take any room to new stylish heights.
