The kitchen is the part of the house where families usually come together in the morning to start their day and a place where everyone gathers in the evening while cooking for dinner. However, not all families have a large kitchen.
But, don’t let a small kitchen space cramp you from having a functional lifestyle. A small kitchen shouldn’t limit you from having an efficient and maximized kitchen. And just because you have a small space to work with doesn’t mean you can’t have a beautiful kitchen.
Small kitchens may be tough to keep everything organized but with the right tricks, you can turn your small kitchen into an efficient and functional space! From playing around with colors to make your kitchen look bigger, to giving your kitchen life and character… MTD Kitchen has smart ideas to inspire you to make the most of your small space!
Here are big ideas we give our clients for their small kitchen spaces:
LIGHT AND WHITE CABINETS CAN MAKE YOUR AREA APPEAR VISUALLY LARGER.
Having too much white in a space can actually make it look a bit dull, so we suggest… add some color by ptting on artworks, vases or anything that would give an accent to your kitchen!
You may also play accent our kitchen with your choice of BACKSPLSH and/or COUNTERTOPS of contrasting color! Or, you may also consider GLASS DOORS or OPEN SHELVING! It can keep the vibe of your kitchen light and spacious.
REFLECTIVE SURFACES CAN ALSO DO THE TRICK!
Instead of adding a mirror, we can pull light into the room by creating a mirror-like effect.
Dark cabinetry and soft hues or white on walls can also give an illusion of a bigger area.
SMART USE OF COLOR.
Bright colored cabinets and decorations move the eye around the room thus, also make the space look bigger.
GOOD LIGHTING HELPS!
Maximize natural light where possible and add adequate lighting. Pendant lights over an island along with under cabinet lighting will add style and ambiance.
BE CREATIVE AND MAKE EVERY SPACE EFFICIENT!
You may choose to have yor oven and stove completely in your island! Cook just right where you prepared it! Or there could be ways to add store by making them as decorations too!
ELIMINATE WHAT YOU DON’T NEED AND
KEEP ONLY WHAT YOU USUALLY USE EVERY DAY!
Keep out off your kitchen all those you don’t need or use often and
Make your kitchen efficient by keeping only what you need. Crowded and unorganized cabinets and counters make your kitchen look smaller.
ADD CABINET ACCESSORIES!
Drawer dividers, spice rack, magic corner cabinets, etc can maximize unusable space.
CONSIDER TURNING YOUR SMALL GALLEY KITCHEN TO AN ADJACENT ROOM!
You may choose to open your kitchen space to your living or dining room and put a bar and a seating area. This will give you an extra space for storage and a wide vibe in your kitchen.
OR, TURN YOUR KITCHEN TO AN EAT-IN KITCHEN!
You may add moveable benches that you may use for food prep at the island.
