Saving Space

Guest Author - Gayle E. Santana

In today’s homes, at a time when real estate is at premium price levels, space is truly an issue. Just ask any New York City Manhattan apartment dweller and you will find story after story of how they make the most of probably the highest priced per square foot real estate in the country. Designing rooms that have more than one function like the office/bedroom or family room/dining room/office is very common.

When I look around my own kitchen, I find like most, just too many appliances. We have the toaster, coffee maker, bean grinder, toaster oven, toaster, microwave, Cuisinart, waffle maker, and this is only the beginning of a list that could go on forever. I almost need a room just to store them all. If someone can make a washer/dryer combo that only takes of the space of one, then the possibilities for other space saving devices has to be endless; and they are. In my travels around the net, I have come across appliances that combine two, even three, of your usual kitchen activities thus saving valuable space.

Coffee Maker/Grinder

Instead of having a coffee maker and separate grinder, a natural combo, these coffee maker and grinders combined make perfect sense.

Here is another grinder/brewer combo by Kalorik

If coffee and toast is your thing, you may want to consider using the Toaster & Coffee Breakfast Set from who else but a company called Team.

Here is a nice one as well by Danby:

Now if you really want to cut down on space, here is the ultimate. The 3-in-1 mini toaster oven, coffee maker and griddle. According to the description on the website, “This toaster oven, griddle and coffee maker can warm or toast breads, heat pot pies, cook mid-size frozen foods or cook an egg, hamburger, sausages or a pancake. It also brews 4 cups of coffee.” I mean think about it; breakfast, lunch, dinner and coffee. Do you really need anything else?

You know, if I put this into the living room, maybe the kitchen could become an extra bedroom. Hmmm...
