How to make the most of your small kitchen

Not everyone is fortunate enough to have a large kitchen space. However, just because your kitchen is small, doesn’t mean that it can’t be stylish, functional, and inviting!

There are lots of different ways to make the most of a small kitchen, allowing you to cook, indulge, and socialise in optimum style and comfort.

After all, the kitchen is often the social hub of the home and it’s important that it is able to meet the demands that come hand in hand with everyday life.

So, if you have a small kitchen, don’t be disheartened. There are plenty of ways that you can overcome the challenges that come with small spaces… here’s our guide to just some of the ways that you can make the most of your small kitchen – we hope you find it helpful!

Maximise ceiling to floor space

When working with any small space, it’s vital that you maximise every square inch available and this means opting for ceiling to floor kitchen cabinets.

This will instantly create more storage space and prevent space from being wasted.

Maximise your cabinet space

Your kitchen is home to an endless supply of utensils, pots, pans and cooking equipment… meaning it can quickly become messy and cluttered in no time at all. And team mess and clutter with a small space and your kitchen will instantly feel claustrophobic and a lot smaller than it actually is!

Instead, you should concentrate on making use of all of your available storage space, even if this means creating storage with storage! For example, a smart use of space is to use dividers and organisational tools to create designated areas for your kitchen utensils.

From integrating roll out trays into your cabinets through to adding dividers to keep everything in its own space, there’s lots of ways that you can maximise your available space.

Chose a light colour palette

When working with a small space, it’s vital that you choose the right colour for your kitchen cabinets and walls as this can have a huge impact on the look and feel of a room.

For example darker colours can make a small space feel enclosed and even smaller than it actually is whereas lighter shades can open a space up, making it feel lighter, brighter and bigger!

Keep clutter to a minimum

Finally, keep clutter to a minimum, especially on your kitchen counters. This means integrating your kitchen appliances into your cabinets and making sure that you have enough space available to cook and prep food on your countertops!

And if you do have windows in your kitchen, make sure you welcome as much natural light as possible into your space as possible, as this will instantly brighten and lighten the room.
