How to Make the Most of Your Kitchen Space

TIP: For easy holiday entertaining maximize kitchen space.

For more places to eat and work get an island.

TIP: Cut template out of cardboard to check size before buying.

TIP: Island on rollers doesn’t need installation.

Add bar stools for extra seating.

Get freestanding pantry to hold holiday food.

TIP: Label shelves to keep food organized.

To store glassware and dishware, remove upper cabinet doors and paint shelves dark color; add contrasting dishes and faux holiday plants.

Light new spaces with under-cabinet, battery-powered, adjustable LED spots.
