Are you looking to design the kitchen of your dreams? If so, what kind of constraints are you working with? If you have an issue with space, in our latest blog, we share 3 tips for a small kitchen remodel. With it, we hope to help you make the most of your kitchen, no matter the size. With a good design, there’s no reason why you can’t get what you want.
Keep it Simple
The best way you can work a small kitchen is by keeping things simple. You can do this by first listing your priorities and organizing them in the best way that makes sense. Take a long hard look at all the things most important to you. Take into account the items you use the most in your kitchen and the items you could do away with. You can do this by writing up an inventory of all your kitchen supplies, narrowing down the ones you need the most, and ditching all the unnecessary items. For instance, maybe instead of keeping your stand mixer, you can opt for something more space-saving, like a hand mixer. Another great way to keep things simple is installing multi-purpose appliances like a toaster oven. A toaster oven conveniently serves three purposes: a microwave, a toaster, and oven. It’s a fantastic three-in-one solution. In keeping things simple, you leave your space free from clutter, allowing you to have a more “open” feel.
Consider an Open Space Concept
Keeping things simple isn’t the only way to make your kitchen feel nice and spacious. You can accomplish all of that and more by creating a design that allows for it. An open-space concept usually implies the removal of any physical barrier, allowing a sense of continuity from one room to another. Open concepts entail fusing the kitchen, dining room, or living room into one big open but balanced area. There are many ways to go about creating an open-space design. But keep in mind, every home is built differently and has its structural barriers to consider. Working with an experienced designer and contractor will give you a better picture of what will work best for your kitchen, considering your wants and needs.
Keep the Well-lit and Light
Another fantastic way to create a beautiful kitchen, regardless of size, is by implementing ample lighting and using neutral colors. Use light fixtures to highlight all the favorite parts of your kitchen and the most used parts of your kitchen. Select lighting features that add to your kitchen’s overall design and that can also be used to highlight the different parts of your kitchen you love the most. For some, they like to highlight their backsplash or intricate tile work, and for others, it’s their China dishware or other specialty items. Consider the lighting hues you use, as they can help make your kitchen appear cozier, inviting, and provide energy efficient features. Choosing light and neutral colors can also do the same thing. It helps remove any visual clutter and create the illusion of a bigger kitchen.
