Creative Solutions for Solving Your One-Wall Kitchen Blues

Originally called the “Pullman Kitchen,” this space-saving wonder can fit your kitchen cabinets and your appliances into any space, no matter how awkward or small. They’re patterned after the long sleeper cars on passenger trains from the 1800s, which made the most of every inch of space on the train. But being a problem-solver isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be, and if you’re suffering from a case of the one-wall kitchen blues, a run-of-the-mill kitchen overhaul won’t solve your woes. If you’re looking for ways to update your Pullman Kitchen and bring it out of the 1800s and into the 2020s, here’s a few tips to get you started.

Think vertically to increase your cabinet space

One-wall kitchens may save space, but they can also leave much to be desired when it comes to storage. Don’t get trapped with traditional, off-the-shelf Pullman Kitchen cabinets. Custom cabinetry will allow you to create vertical solutions for spice racks, pantry foods, and that strange space between the refrigerator or stove and the wall.

Other designers only offer off-the-shelf, mass-produced solutions that they call “custom.” The design experts at KitchenFX carefully measure every inch of your kitchen to make the most of your space with creative custom kitchen cabinet options that are truly custom.

Go underfoot to take back wasted under-cabinet space

Under-cabinet drawers are uncommon right now; you’ve likely never heard of them, but you will. Creating space is about creating solutions. Most cabinet systems can be altered to accommodate small under-cabinet drawers that increase space for your awkward-to-store items, like cookie sheets and muffin tins.

The designers at KitchenFX also do something uncommon: we listen to what you need. Our design experts use your “pain points” and your dreams to come up with kitchen cabinet solutions that maximize both your space and your budget.

 Rethink your layout

When you’ve lived with a one-wall kitchen for years, changing your layout can be terrifying. The good news is that you can make small, affordable changes that make a huge difference. Adding a kitchen island immediately adds storage and counter space, while changing your layout to a galley with a walk-through corridor. Depending on your space, you may even be able to upgrade to an L-shape kitchen without sacrificing your open space.

Other designers might tell you that your kitchen requires a full renovation. The design experts at KitchenFX work with you to find workable solutions to create “your” kitchen.
