A small kitchen remodel can be challenging due to the limited amount of space that’s available. That doesn’t mean your kitchen can’t be functional, as there are a number of ways you can maximize the space that’s available in order to ensure it completely meets your needs.
If you have an older home with tall ceilings, consider stretching your space vertically. Add floor to ceiling cabinets complete with glass doors or open shelving near you’re the top in order to provide the maximum amount of storage space possible. Items you rarely use can be placed at the very top, and you’ll still have plenty of room for everyday items down below.
Using light-toned wood for your cabinets will help your kitchen look somewhat larger than what it actually is. Add a mirrored backsplash along one section of your counter in order to open it up even further. Consider using rows of shelving along your walls rather than cabinets, and you’ll also avoid the temptation to accumulate more things than you actually need.
Just because you have a small kitchen doesn’t mean you can’t include an island in your remodeling plans. An ideal island for a small kitchen would resemble a narrow bench, and could even contain wheels so that it could be moved out of the way easily whenever it is not being used.
In a small kitchen, there may be a limited amount of counter space available for small appliances. By adding a roll-down door underneath one of your top cabinets, you can easily provide space to tuck these appliances into. Best of all, when the door is down, your countertop will appear open and uncluttered, which in turn will help visually enlarge this tiny area.
