Whether you’re a pro or a novice in the kitchen, it’s important to have a kitchen that’ll inspire you to whip up your favorite recipes or new gastronomic delights. Luckily, you don’t have to break the bank to achieve the look you want for your dream kitchen.

Here are some tips to help you upgrade your kitchen into a stylish and organized space!

1. Add an island for extra storage

A kitchen island is a great addition to your kitchen space especially if it’s a super-sized one. It provides more than enough storage space not just for all of your kitchen tools and equipment but also a good way to hide appliances to make sure that your kitchen looks cohesive. You can even add more seating around your kitchen island which is definitely an advantage when you have guests over.

Customize your kitchen storage with the METOD system. There are plenty of styles that you can choose from to fit your personality, whether it’s the knobs, interior fittings, drawers, or cover panels.

2. Light it up!

Good lighting is important, especially in the kitchen. Not only to maximize visibility but the lighting you choose can also change the mood of the space.

When natural lighting is not available, focused lighting like the bold SKURUP pendant lamp will go well over your island counter, perfectly highlighting your delicious spread.

Need more light? Add TERTIAL work lamps to your shelves, worktops or walls for that additional spotlight.

3. Maximize vertical space

In the kitchen, you can never go wrong with more storage. That is why KUNGSFORS wall-mounted kitchen shelves and accessories are perfect for maximizing your vertical space.

This open shelving solution made of durable materials gives you the look of a professional kitchen while giving you easy access to kitchen tools you need regularly. You can choose from the ready-made shelving styles or create your own combination.

4. Turn unused space into your kitchen extension

With people spending more time at home than before, it only makes sense that you add more room by transforming unused space like the back porch or closed balcony into an extension of your kitchen.

Make sure to create a seamless transition and set up items such as the TARNO outdoor table and chairs or SVARTA LED lights to fully enjoy the cozy winter weather.

5. Go green!
