kitchen is at the heart of family life. And whether you’re cooking, indulging, socialising or entertaining, it’s one of the busiest spaces in your home.
The good news is, if you don’t have a large kitchen space, this doesn’t mean that you can’t create an environment that is functional, comfortable and inviting.
We’ve created a list of 4 small kitchen ideas that will allow you to make the most of your available space.
Mess and clutter can instantly make a space feel unloved and smaller than it actually is.
With this in mind, when it comes to re-designing your kitchen, make sure that you make the most of all the available storage space, even if it is in the most unlikely places. This will allow you to keep your worktops clear and tidy.
For example there is now a whole host of smart storage solutions such as pull-out corner drawers, drawer dividers, ceiling-to-floor units and innovative wall shelves that will help you to optimise the space you have available.
Make wise colour choices
Did you know that the colours you choose to populate your kitchen can have a huge impact on its entire look and feel?
This is because dark, imposing colour ways can make a room feeling enclosed, small and claustrophobic. Instead, you should opt for lighter colour ways such as pastels and neutral tones as this will make your small kitchen feel bigger, lighter and brighter.
Let in the natural light
It goes without saying that you should certainly embrace any natural light sources in your home, especially if you are working with smaller spaces.
Natural light is a great way to open up a space, and of course, a skylight, patio door or window also make appealing focal points, especially if you are looking to increase the value of your property.
Thanks to advances in technology, more and more of us are populating our kitchens with the latest gadgets and cooking equipment. However, if your kitchen lacks space, large appliances will make your it feel even smaller.
Instead, why not incorporate integrated kitchen appliances into the design of your kitchen? This will allow you to save space and disguise large, unsightly appliances that are never going to do you any favours in the style stakes.
A mirror is not only a practical addition to a room, it can also create the illusion of space. They are also great for adding a striking focal point to your kitchen.
