13 Oct Clever Design Tips for Small Kitchens
Having a small kitchen area doesn’t mean it has to be small on style and efficiency as well. It just means you have to be careful about your kitchen design and make the most of the space you have. Small kitchens can have minimal clutter and maximum style with some clever considerations. Create some kitchen style with these creative design elements for smaller kitchen spaces.
Reflective Kitchen Finishes
Glossy surfaces are great option for small kitchen spaces as they reflect the most light and will make your kitchen appear larger and more open. Use light colour schemes for all areas in the kitchen and try to match your bench top, cabinets and walls. Your kitchen elements will flow seamlessly from wall to floor and trick the eye into gliding over the surfaces, with the illusion of a bigger space. Mix and match different textures and finishes in white and high-shine surfaces within your décor to keep your small kitchen stylish and minimalistic.
Smart Kitchen Splashbacks
A mirrored splashback is a sneaky design trick doubling your kitchen size and helping light bounce around the room. A glass window splashbacks will flood your kitchen with natural lighting and allow you to see straight through your kitchen to the outside. Light coloured and reflective splashback materials such as white subway tiles will help to brighten up your kitchen.
Storage can have a big impact on how big or small your kitchen feels. Large and bulky cabinets can make a kitchen feel cramped. Reduce visual weight by using open shelving, a bulk-free and sleek look, or replace solid cabinet doors with glass or mirrored door fronts. Save space on your kitchen bench tops by hanging cooking utensils on the walls.
Open up your Kitchen
Avoid designing your kitchen with closed off walls and tall cabinets. Small layouts such as u-shaped and galley kitchens can be opened up to the rest of the home with a breakfast bar on one side, merging the kitchen into the dining and entertaining area.
We hope these creative tips for your kitchen will help you make it feel larger and spacious. With these design ideas you can utilise all of your available space and turn a small area into a beautifully designed spacious kitchen.
