Moving into a smaller house is always an adjustment and acclimating to your new, tiny kitchen will definitely take some getting used to. In fact, a tiny kitchen can make cooking a challenge, but embrace it!
One of the most common myths when cooking is that you need a lot of space. Sure, if you have a lot of counter space, a couple of sinks, and six burners on the stove you can come away with a culinary masterpiece. But, you can do all that with your small kitchen as well. So, moving into a smaller house doesn’t have to hurt your gastronomic adventures.
A tiny kitchen almost forces you to transition into a greener lifestyle and more eco-friendly cooking, whether you like it or not. Here’s how:
- In a tiny kitchen, you naturally reduce your waste. You just won’t be able to store as much as in a larger kitchen. With a lot of storage space you might overbuy or overstock.
- If you have a small kitchen, you may become a much greener cook. How? Without a large oven or stove, you may want to do a little more outside grilling. Get a solar-powered grill and make the most of it.
- Because you will have less storage space, you’ll likely buy less pre-packaged foods. That means that you’ll be eating healthier and fresher foods.
- Smaller kitchens are easier to clean!
