A kitchen is a space where a woman spends a lot of time. Well, these days’ men also spend quite sometime in the kitchen. Still, less heed is paid while designing a kitchen. In many homes, all the big spaces are utilized by bedrooms, drawing room, et al, and only a small space is given to a kitchen. If this is the scenario with you, we have some help at hand. We bring to you some amazing ideas to design a small kitchen and make the most out of the small space. Go through these ideas before you take a step ahead and make your small kitchen efficient and beautiful.
The first thing that you should keep in mind before starting anything is that, the kitchen should be very efficient and least cluttered. As the space is already small, a lot of clutter will make it appear even smaller.
1) Keep A Reflective Surface
A reflective surface, i.e., a mirror will reflect light, illuminate the space and will give an illusion of larger space. Install mirrors in a small kitchen to make it look big.
2) Install Backsplash Shelving
In a small kitchen, storage options are limited. In that case, you can use the space above the counter for additional storage. Install small shelves to keep the stuff that you require regularly.
3) Use Under-cabinet Lightings
Lighting is an integral part of designing any space. If the lighting is not proper, the space look cramped. A small kitchen without proper lighting would appear dingy, dull and claustrophobic. Use sufficient lights. You can go for under- cabinet lightings.
4) Design Everything Smartly
When working in small kitchens, organization is the key. Organize and divide the kitchen so that everything has a designated and required amount of space. Design plate rack as well as trash can inside a cabinet.
5) Use Open Shelving
Open shelving make kitchen look airy and large.
6) Install Hanging Storage
If you want extra storage space to your small kitchen, hanging storage is a good option. You can hand your pans and bulky pots overhead. For small things you can use hooks.
7) Kitchen Counter Bars
If you have a very tiny space and cannot make space for a proper kitchen counter, you can opt for a bar countertop. They consume less space and can be utilized for preparation as well as eating.
Create elements that perfectly fit the space, leaving no dead space. Make sure to be using every single inch of your kitchen, but aesthetically. If done wisely, you can design an efficient and beautiful kitchen.
