Ever found yourself wishing that you have bigger kitchen space in your home in Metro Manila? Well, unless you plan to move to another house, or are actually living in the provinces, the prospects of you ever having a spacious kitchen are indeed very unlikely. However, there are some helpful kitchen tips that could make it more spacious. Here are a few:

Buy less food.
Surprised about this suggestion? Don't be. Most of the time, our shelves are full of food that would probably be used in the next few months yet. Although, having a full cupboard is nice to look at, it's not only a waste of money, but takes up valuable kitchen space as well. Remember to buy just enough food that could last for at least two weeks --- this is enough lead time for possible emergencies.

Invest in stackable containers.
These plastic containers may hold anything and everything whether food or even kitchen implements. Keeping such items could readily give a kitchen an organized look and is hygienic. Plus, they can serve double duty as well, as toy can use them in taking food out of the kitchen for picnics and get-togethers.

Invest in new appliances and furnishings.
If you have enough cash and are inclined to buy new appliances, then by all means do so. Some kitchen appliances like refrigerators, ovens and the like; are actually slimmer and smaller guaranteeing more space for your kitchen.

Some "new" kitchen furnishings are also space-savvy. Collapsible chairs and tables may be used in lieu of the traditional kind; while modular kitchen counters can be bought according to the amount of counters space one needs.

Eliminate the center island.
Unless you want to compromise traffic flow in your kitchen then don't build a center island. Although, having a center island is ideal in a spacious kitchen; having one in a space-challenged kitchen is just not practical.

Keep your kitchen clutter-free.
The kitchen is just for food and food preparation and is not what we Pinoys call a bodega. As such, it's not a place for keeping such things as old newspapers, bottles and other stuff that accumulates in the home.
