Just because you have a small cooking space doesn't mean you have to de-prioritize the decor in your kitchen to make it functional. Even if your kitchen is not spacious with marble countertops, endless storage space, and an extra-large stainless steel fridge, you can maximize even the tiniest space with some better small kitchen ideas that prove you can do more with less, without sacrificing style Some of the Major design ideas for small kitchens have been classified below in detail for your view.
1. TIERD SHELVES:
Utilize all that wall space by stacking more layers of open shelving on top of each other.
2. CREATION OF FAKE BREAKFAST COUNTER:
If there's no room for an eat-in kitchen table, install a wood countertop against one wall and add high-top chairs.
3. DRAWERS SPACE:
Cut down on countertop clutter by skipping the produce bowls and dedicating a drawer to items that don't need to be refrigerated.
4. MINIMALISTIC DESIGN:
Pare down your clutter and your tiny kitchen is guaranteed to feel bigger. Gray subway tile and wooden open shelving help the pared down vibe.
5. BE MAXIMALIST:
Or go in the other direction: Over-the-top patterns, colors, rugs, and accessories. Piling it on with purpose will help your space feel cozy, not overwhelmed.
6. EXTRA STORAGE:
If you have a small kitchen, make a custom kitchen island do triple duty as a breakfast nook, food prep station, and storage space with open shelving on the sides.
6. EXTRA STORAGE:
Can also go with some textured wall papers rather than paint too. But a textured floral wall papers cause the space smaller than usual whereas the paint of light colours shows up the space larger, airy and maximised.
7. LINEAR KITCHEN:
Classic horizontal subway tile can help a kitchen space feel wider.
8. COLOURFUL RUG:
A rug is sure to warm up a small kitchen, adding color and texture into it.
9. HIDDEN REMINDER STATION:
Make use of shutters as hidden reminder station, otherwise forgotten interior cabinet door by turning it into a place to jot down your grocery list and save coupons.
10. FIX MIRROR:
If you don't have a big kitchen window install a mirror instead — it will reflect light and make your space feel brighter.
This genius concept is definitely one you'll want to steal if you're short on counter space. Get yourself an over-the-sink rack on Accessories, complete with hooks and pockets to hold even more kitchen utensils.
If your cabinets are too cramped to fit all of your kitchen gear, stealthily use the cuter items as decor. For instance, chunky vintage cutting boards or bright colanders can double as artwork. And a row of matching mixing bowls stuck above cabinets looks intentional, not messy.
13. Install storage under benches:
Not only does a breakfast nook bench take up less space than chairs, but this one also has storage hidden underneath the seat cushions for less-frequently-used items, like holiday tablecloths.
14. USE EMPTY WALLS:
Open shelving can offer a ton of flexible storage, but requires a full commitment for it to look stylish. A wall dedicated to floating shelves looks like a purposeful design statement, but a lowly cart just looks like clutter.
