Small kitchens can be cozy and comfortable, but sometimes lack the storage space of their larger counterparts. If you're looking for ways to make the most of your small kitchen, there are plenty of design ideas that can help. Keep reading for some great tips on how to maximize space in your small kitchen.
1. Get Creative with Above Cabinet Space
One way to add personality to your kitchen is to use the space above your cabinets. If you have items you want to display or larger dishes, this is a great way to show them off and store them. Utilizing this space will give your kitchen a unique touch. You also extend your cabinets all the way to the ceiling, creating a dramatic kitchen cabinet look and providing tons of hidden storage.
2. Decorate Any Open Walls with your Dishes or Art Work
If you have any blank walls in your kitchen, put them to good use by hanging up some dishes, utensils, or even art work. This will not only save you space but also add a touch of decoration to your kitchen.
3. Opt for a smaller range and range hood
Kitchly offers a line of products, ZLINE's Alpine Series designed solely for smaller kitchens. Opting for a smaller range and range hood allows you to utilize valuable counter and wall space.
4. Put Everything Along the Longest Wall
If you're space is a little smaller, try to keep everything in your kitchen against the same long wall. To really maximize your space, stick with open shelving, stack your cutting boards, and use a magnetic knife block. Don’t forget to check out our sinks and faucets too.
5. Have Fun with Your Floor Tiling Design
Although you have less floor space to work with, you can still be creative with your flooring choices. With less space to tile, you will save money and it will provide your kitchen with a unique, and one-of-a-kind style.
6. Utilize Open Shelves
Open shelves allow you to optimize your space. If you have any cabinets, especially corner cabinets, you can take them out and install open shelves. This will allow you to display and easily find common use items.
7. Paint your Kitchen a Bright Color
Using paint that highlights the natural light in your kitchen will brighten it up and make it feel more open. Try to avoid dark colors because it will make your kitchen feel smaller, but you can use a darker color on an accent wall. Just make sure the colors complement one another.
8. Have a Rolling/Movable Kitchen Island
Adding a rolling/movable kitchen island is a great way to increase your kitchen storage, and provides the ability to move it around as you please. You can purchase one or get creative and make on yourself!
9. Pick a Unique Backsplash
Choosing a fun tile backsplash is a great way to add some personality and fun to a small kitchen. Don’t be afraid to go with a bright, colorful pattern. This will brighten up your space.
