3. Realize that anything can become a pantry.
An old locker found at an estate sale then repainted? Yep, that’s your new pantry. Double points for adding a magnetic knife strip to the side and/or magnetic spice jars for even more storage that doesn’t take up counter space.
4. Add cozy accents that make it feel more like a real room.
When you have a kitchen that is really just the wall of another room, adding proper overhead lighting and warm accents like a good rug can make it feel more cohesive, a room you actually enter into rather than just a wall you have to visit to make tea.
