Kitchen Style: Small Space, Big Dreams
Is your kitchen small, but you’re dreaming of renovating it to turn this limited space into an enjoyable place to spend time in? Don’t despair! These days, there are a number of available options to help you make this dream come true.
First of all, would it be possible to borrow a little space from one of the adjoining rooms? Demolishing a cloakroom or decreasing the size of your dining room, for example, would help you gain some additional space, that is, of course, if you have the money and the place to do it. Second of all, you need to figure out how you can tidy up the space; a cluttered area always looks smaller than it really is. The optimal use of all available space is a top priority. You can optimize your storage space by installing cabinets that go all the way to the ceiling. And why not have a full-height cupboard? That way, you can store more things in the same space. The use of rolling or sliding doors can also be a good way to open up your kitchen, as they won’t intrude on your space while you’re trying to cook.
Third of all, think about how you can optimize the use of your kitchen cabinets. The addition of a place for the microwave, a drawer for sponges or a hook where you can hang dish towels inside a cabinet are all little changes you can make to improve organization in your small kitchen. The use of drawers rather than doors is usually a great option for maximizing limited space in a kitchen. Silverware and non-perishable food items will be easily accessible to the whole family.
Last of all, you can avoid the oppressive feeling of a small kitchen by painting the walls a lighter color, by adding mirrors to create an illusion of space and by uncluttering and uncovering the windows to let in a maximum amount of natural light.
As you can see, it’s possible to convert a limited space into a beautiful kitchen. You just have to take the time to determine your needs and carefully plan out the work that has to be done.
