Design Tips for Small Kitchens

A small kitchen doesn’t necessarily mean bumping into other family members when you cook or stuff the cutlery into an overfilled drawer. With careful spatial planning and innovative storage methods, you can transform small, messy kitchens into efficient and orderly style models.

 

The National Kitchen and Bath Association defines a small kitchen as a kitchen area of 150 square feet or less. To create a more spacious space, we recommend using a unique storage solution that blends natural and ambient lighting, wisely selects the device, and adds a personalized design.

 

Appliance Location & Selection

Proper placement and selection of your Appliance can greatly improve the productivity and traffic flow of the kitchenette.Save counter space by building the microwave into the cabinetry and by installing a range or placing a separate cooktop over an oven. An appliance garage or pantry can keep toasters, can openers, and other small appliances hidden and out of the way when not in use.Choose sleekly styled appliance models to reduce visual distractions and contribute to a streamlined look.

In small kitchens, sometimes we can consider using special-sized Appliance. For example, some dealers can provide 24-inch wide gas stoves for small kitchens, apartments, apartments and holiday homes.

 

Lighting and lighting colors
In a small space, good work lighting becomes very important. A light can be placed under the cabinet to illuminate the countertop. Or add more natural light to the kitchen by adding windows to make the kitchen brighter.

From a design perspective, lighter colored cabinets, wall paints, countertops and floors will have openings and brightening effects. Through the open shelves, the pot rack and the  glass-front doors add a sense of space.

 

 Organization And Storage 

Take advantage of all existing new storage options. Get valuable space for rarely used items through the upper cabinets all the way to the ceiling, make lower cabinets more accessible with rollout shelves, lazy susans, and tilt-out bins. If you don’t want to replace the cabinet, you can get more information from existing accessories, such as tray dividers; lazy susan partitions and storage containers; and chrome-plated backsplash systems with cookbook holders, spice racks and wire baskets.

 

Take Down a Wall

If you’re willing to explore changing the floor plan, the best way to expand a small kitchen is to literally open it up to an adjoining room, typically a family or dining room. Consult a professional to see if there is a non-load-bearing wall or two that can be removed, creating the space to add an island or peninsula. Or you could cut a rectangular hole in an adjoining wall, creating extra counter space for convenient serving and conversation.
