Small Space Kitchens
If space is limited in the home, you can still create an attractive and highly functional kitchen space with the right design choices. Creating bespoke small space kitchens can be a challenge but when done effectively it can have a positive impact on the entire feel of the home. While there are limitations on how much space you can use, you can design it so that it offers uncluttered and inviting space.
Here are some ways that you can improve the overall feel of small space kitchens.
One of the biggest challenges when designing small space kitchens is finding enough room to store everything. Fortunately, there are a number of creative ways to maximise your available space without cluttering it up.
Purpose built cabinets and hidden pullout drawers and baskets are excellent ways to reduce the amount of clutter in the kitchen as they keep appliances and cutlery away until needed. Open shelving on walls can also create extra storage where cabinetry space is limited.
The choice of colour scheme in the kitchen is important when trying to make your space feel more homely. Choosing warm and soft colours is a great way to make your kitchen space feel more airy and spacious.
In addition, muted colours can create a sense of calm in the kitchen and avoid the feeling of being overwhelmed. Consider what sort of colour scheme will suit your kitchen, both in terms of painting the walls as well as furniture and cabinets.
In addition to colour, texture is another excellent way to improve the feel of your kitchen space and make it feel larger. For modern kitchens, sleek and glossy handleless cabinets and drawers can create a contemporary spacious look in the kitchen.
For more classic kitchen designs, light natural wood combined with stainless steel appliances can make for a great contrasting texture choice. You can also add some greenery to your space to give it a more inviting feel.
Lighting is very important when it comes to creating the right sort of atmosphere in the kitchen. A combination of natural light and strategically placed lighting is key to having a kitchen that is not only functional but also looks larger. Consider LED lighting that is skillfully positioned so it is out of the way during the day but illuminates the area at night. Consider well placed wall lighting and recessed lighting options to ensure your kitchen has the light it needs.
