When space is limited in your kitchen, every square inch matters. Being clever and creative will help you maximize the space in your kitchen to be able to create the gourmet goodies your family loves.
If you’re able to start from scratch with a full small kitchen remodel, you will want to create as much efficiency as possible in the space allowed. If you change the order of your appliances such as by putting the microwave on the wall on top of the stove which is situated next to the sink, you are making clean up easy and utilizing all of the counter space available.
By making your kitchen taller, you are creating more space. Purchase kitchen cabinets that reach up to the ceiling. Before you start the remodel, take into account the self-height and where you would like to store items. If you’re planning a custom pantry to store dry goods, envision where everything will be stored and plan accordingly.
Create a dining space that is comfortable, fits into the design of your kitchen and is also functional. If you have the space available, create a breakfast bar instead of a standard kitchen table. This will not only provide more open floor space in your kitchen but can also double as extra counter space while you are cooking.
Details can make all of the difference to change the appearance of your kitchen to make it look bigger. By choosing a large 12″ by 12″ tile and placing them on a diagonal, you can give your kitchen the appearance of being wider. An oversized, deep sink can provide more space to place dirty dishes to be kept out of the way during prep time.
The details mean everything to a small space so use your imagination, be creative in your organization and plan as much as you can before starting your small kitchen remodel. For more information regarding custom kitchen designs for your space, contact us today.
