A Decorative Adjustment That Leaves a Little More Counter Space

Hey everyone, I just wanted to share a quick change I made in the kitchen that has made a huge difference, and a lot more space too!

There is a lot of counter space in the kitchen compared to where Kris and I moved from, but for some reason, we still find ourselves complaining that there isn’t any room for things like food preparation or keeping clean dishes out to dry. We have moved things off of or around on the counter in order to have more space, and sometimes we are successful, but other times it’s a pain to not have a specific thing sitting there because we use it frequently and hate having to take it out of a cupboard.

Kris came up with a great idea the other day, and it has made a wonderful difference! We moved the microwave off the counter and onto our food shelf. It’s lower to the ground which looks kind of funny, but now we have a lot more counter space because of it. After that, we bought a couple of food containers with lids that clamp down and we put the food we cook or eat most frequently in them like coffee and pasta noodles.

This was a small change that was necessary for sure! We were able to add a little decorative touch while keeping it useful and helpful all at the same time. I added the chalk labels to the jars for a little more convenience as well. This was only a minor change I suppose, but it’s the little additions or adjustments to a space like these that excite me. They can make a big difference and add so much character and fun. The little things are what inspire me. 😉
