Having a small kitchen is not necessarily a liability. When carefully considered, a small kitchen can be so appealing that some remodeling jobs now aim at reducing the size of a large kitchen in favor of a more manageable space. Small kitchens are cheaper. The kitchen is the most expensive remodel in the house. Keeping the space small reduces the use of expensive materials, bringing down your overall cost.
Best Remodel Ideas For Small Kitchen Turns To A Gorgeous Cooking Area
Adjust The Lighting
The first piece of advice for a small kitchen is always to lighten up your kitchen paint colors. By doing this, you instantly add the feeling of space because light colors reflect lots of light. Consider hanging pendant lights that bathe your eating area in a more appetizing color.
The proper lighting will increase the shadowing of the space. Giving the area greater visual movement through light and dark contrast as opposed to cabinetry simply shown in the cold blue of fluorescent lighting.
Downsize The Sink
The massive sink and countertop made popular by the kitchen design industry is not always the best choice. In a small kitchen, sequester the sink in its own area, freeing up other parts of the kitchen for food prep. In a small kitchen, it’s crucial to make wise use of every space. You may be able to save a bit of space by using scaled-down or innovative appliances, including refrigerator and freezer drawers and pint-sized microwaves, stoves (some with just two burners), and single sinks.
Fill Up Space
Storage is problematic in limited-space kitchens the instant you increase your storage, your work area shrinks. Fortunately, kitchen cabinet manufacturers have gotten smart about how and where to create storage space. For example, filler cabinets with sliders, as narrow as three inches wide, can help you store baking pans, spices, utensils, and other smaller items.
Another idea is to install pantry cabinets and wall cabinets that reach to the ceiling. Although the gap at the top can be visually appealing (it does make the wall cabinets feel less imposing), in a small kitchen this is valuable space being wasted. Fill it in!
