Not all houses or studio lofts come with big kitchens. With a few changes here and there, a small kitchen can trick the eye and look quite roomy.
Here are some ideas to make your small kitchen stand out:
- Make use of the upward space – homeowners can have ceiling-high cabinets installed that make efficient use of vertical space that is seldom used for anything.
- Downsize – there are pint-sized microwaves, refrigerator and freezer drawers, and similar appliances that are smaller versions but offer the same functions.
- Incorporate glass – one of the simplest ways of making a small kitchen seem big is to make use of glass that can create the illusion of spaciousness. Maximize its use—from glass counters and tabletops to door cabinets and kitchen doors.
- Tucked-away seats – make use of stools that can fit under counters to save space when they are not in use.
- Lighten it up – making use of light colors and tiles instead of dark ones; in this way you don’t feel like the kitchen walls are closing in on you.
A small kitchen may be limited in size, but there are a lot of things that you can do with its design to make it look like the perfect place.
