Small Kitchen Design Tips

It is not difficult to feel like the walls are closing in when you are in a small kitchen. In such kitchens, countertop space is more precious than gold and you have turned opening the doors to the dishwasher and oven doors at the same time into an art. In spite of a small kitchen, you can still have a sense of space with the right design techniques.

Rolling Island

Maximise the area you have to prepare and serve food by utilising a rolling kitchen island that you can keep in another area of the home, like in the dining room as a buffet when you do not need it in the kitchen. Then, when you do need to use it for food preparation, roll it into the entrance of the kitchen so it does not take up any additional space that you may desperately need. A rolling island is also a good option for couples who like to cook together so they do not get in each other’s way.

Hang Pots and Pans

Take advantage of the vertical space in your kitchen by hanging your pots and pans from a rack mounted from the ceiling. Using a pot and pan rack will free up space in your cabinets and you will have extra areas to store other appliances or food.

Kitchen Lighting

It is not unusual for bad lighting to accompany small kitchens. Remedy this by installing under-cabinet lighting and a light over the kitchen sink. Kitchen Designer Ideas states that the extra lighting will make the kitchen appear larger and more pleasant.

Glass Cabinet Doors

Create the look of a country kitchen by refacing your cabinets with a light colour and installing glass doors on them. Doing this will result in the appearance of a larger open space.

Replace Cabinets

If you own your home and have a small kitchen, replace the cabinetry in the kitchen. This can give your kitchen a facelift without having to remodel the whole room. Homeowners who have nonfunctional cabinets or a poor kitchen layout because of poorly placed cabinets should especially consider replacing their cabinets. Doing this can instantly open up more space in the kitchen and make all of your cabinet storage areas accessible.

Elevate the Microwave

Even if your home did not come with an above-the-stove microwave, you can still get the appliance off your counter. Do this by installing a deep shelving unit 16 to 24 inches above a counter. Installing a corner shelf with this purpose in mind will also give you additional space to store small kitchen items that you want to show off.
