If your kitchen is on the smaller side, you can still take advantage of every square foot of space and make the room appear larger. Our free kitchen design service will provide you with attractive and creative solutions to getting the most out of your kitchen and turning it into a beautiful room, enjoyable to use and fulfilling your practical needs.
In general, the strategies for designing a smaller kitchen include the following:
In most cases, the cabinetry and the walls should be in white or light colors. Darker colors might make the kitchen seem more small and cramped, while lighter colors will do a better job reflecting light and softening any sharp edges that mark the boundaries of the kitchen. The space will seem larger and more airy.
Unconventional cabinet doors
If some of your prominent cabinets have glass doors, the glass will reveal the cabinets’ depth and enhance the feeling of greater space in the room. Plus, having some cabinets with glass doors means that you can use those cabinets both for storage and for decorative functions, putting some of your finer or more colorful tableware on display.
Another choice might be a cabinet door that rolls up rather than opening outward; conventional doors that open outward, particularly if they’re large, can take up too much space in a smaller kitchen.
Maximized cabinet and drawer space
If your cabinets are inefficiently designed and organized, you’re wasting valuable space. For instance, some of your cabinets may have inadequate shelving, or the shelves may be improperly spaced, requiring better planning. If you have drawers, they may contain a mess of items mixed in together; the space be improved by the use of dividers and other kinds of organizers, such as trays. When you can store more items in your cabinets and drawers, you’ll have less clutter on your countertops, which will also make the kitchen seem larger.
If your kitchen has a smaller area, it doesn’t have to feel or look cramped, provided you have the right design features.
