Do you ever feel like your apartment or tiny living space’s kitchen is too cramped? Having little to no elbow-room is a familiar problem for many folks, so know that you’re not alone. And, fortunately for you, K&A Appliance has a vast selection of brand-new, scratch and dent appliances in Lancaster, PA, that are perfect for any kitchen—big or small.

Whether it’s clutter, layout issues, lack of functional appliances, or just an understandable lack of square footage that’s making your kitchen feel small, don’t panic! Space-saving appliances are the perfect, cost-effective solution for your kitchen. They can even help you to avoid a complete room revamp.

In this blog post, we suggest six space-saving kitchen appliances that’ll make your home space feel more aesthetically pleasing while providing more value, functionality, and overall more accessibility.

Compact Refrigerators

When space is limited, finding the right compact refrigerator becomes a priority. But did you know this must-have kitchen appliance came in different sizes? A 24-inch refrigerator, sometimes referred to as a skinny refrigerator, is perfect for small kitchens and tight spaces.

With compact refrigerators, simple solutions can go a long way. Features designed to help you maximize space, such as LED lighting and full-width glass shelves for bright, generous storage, our apartment-size fridges are smart solutions for your space limitations.

Microwave Drawers

A stainless-steel microwave drawer is a perfect space-saving kitchen appliance and a way to reclaim vital counter space from countertop microwaves. A typical 24-inch microwave drawer can fit a 4-quart casserole dish and is tall enough for a 20 oz. cup of coffee. Many models of microwave drawers provide flexible placement options. So you can install them below an island, peninsula, or standard cabinetry, or even below your wall oven.

Wall Ovens

Fresh-baked bread tastes even more delicious in a small, cozy kitchen. Before purchasing a wall oven, consider your needs and compare product features. Small ovens offer impressive performance with multiple cooking modes and options or even wireless connectivity—all the features you need to make life easier.

Compact & Countertop Dishwashers

Smaller dishwashers are available with either front or top controls. Top controls permit a seamless, space-saving fit with your cabinetry, while front controls let you quickly check your dishes’ status. Whichever style you choose, you’ll always enjoy superior performance and silence.

Another space-saving dishwasher option that’s incredibly convenient for apartment dwellers or homeowners who don’t want an installed dishwasher eating up valuable cabinet space is a countertop dishwasher. Be sure to catch our earlier blog post on how to shop these unique, compact machines.

Dishwasher Drawer

Are you looking for energy savings in addition to addressing your space concerns? Then consider a dishwasher drawer. Depending on your personal dishwashing needs, there are one and two drawer options for you to choose from.

If you’re unsure whether to choose a one or two drawer dishwasher, factor in the number of dishes or glasses you go through regularly. If you’re single or tend to eat out most nights, then a single dishwasher drawer may be the right choice for you. If you need a high-volume workhorse, then go with a double drawer model, as it’s approximately the same size as a full-sized dishwasher but still has the energy and time-saving benefits to make a small kitchen more functional.

Small Cooktops

Our small-space cooktops use different technologies to serve one common goal: helping you achieve delicious results. Their secret lies in high-precision heat control, whether through direct level selection on our induction cooktops or the heavy-duty knobs on our gas ranges.
