Today’s small kitchen idea is perfect for those who are not blessed with a large and friendly kitchen-dining. Sure, you might not have room for a kitchen island, stove and dining table to cram guests around. But small does not have to mean boring. There are many clever ways to make your kitchen feel spacious.
Storage is one of the most important basic elements in a small kitchen. To maximize every inch of backup, rearrange areas that don’t work as hard as they should and add additional solutions if needed, you can turn a small room into Tardis. Start by thinking about how you use your kitchen and where everything is needed because this will help you decide what type of storage you need. Like some of the latest small kitchen design ideas for you to try. Please see some inspiration and tips below.
1. Clear away the clutter in small kitchens
Wall cabinets can really encroach on space, so consider doing away with yours. Open shelving can make a huge impact in a small kitchen, creating an open and airy feel, as long as you limit the number of shelves you use, and what you keep on them.
2. Turn every corner into a storage space
Identify places where there’s wasted space, such as the gaps between shelves, at the back of cupboards, below the sink, unused corners, and windowsills. Stack wherever you can and have a clear out of kitchenware that’s infrequently used or only has one purpose, so you have less to store.
3. Supersize the sink
Your small kitchen might not have space for a dishwasher, so it’s worth finding room for a double sink. Keep one bowl for washing and one bowl for dirty dishes. That way you’ll have somewhere to stack mucky prep kit and plates out of sight, and without cluttering up the work surface.
4. Consider compact containers
Put a windowsill, shelf or recess to work by adding a selection of strong baskets and use to stow bottles, packets or even fresh herbs in pots. Baskets are also a great way to store condiments, meaning you can take them all to the dining table in one trip.
5. Keep your kitchen scheme simple
Nothing makes a room seem larger like simple white walls, so why not take it further with sleek, contemporary details that open up space. Light, reflective materials and minimal designs are your friends in a small kitchen, so consider white or frosted glass cabinet doors, white stone or composite, or stainless-steel worktops, and white splashback tiling.
