Modern house layouts usually have a kitchen next to balconies or a backyard. You might not have thought about this before, but this feature of modern houses is very helpful. Use the backyard space as an extra kitchen storage area. 

You might have an empty wall or section right next to your kitchen. This space can be your kitchen equipment keeper. You are only required to add a few extra kitchen cabinets, racks and (if you prefer) floating shelves. And your outdoor kitchenette storage is ready to use. 

These little additions will make the outdoor storage more functional and contemporary. Floating shelves or cabinets are the best option for modern outdoor kitchen storage. But ensure to cover the outdoor storage when not in use, especially protect it from rain. It will prevent moisture and rust on your kitchen equipment.

You might think that corridor is a small space to accommodate a kitchen. But as corridors have more length than width. Thus, you can add various features to your corridor kitchen without worrying about the space. Pro tips to decorate a small corridor kitchen are:

  • Go for lighter colours to enhance attractiveness. 
  • Apply floor to ceiling cabinets.
  • Avoid clutter on countertops.
  • Choose creative storage options.
