Making a Small Kitchen Feel Spacious
Many homes have kitchens that can be a little on the small side. If you live in a home that has a smaller kitchen, then there are things that you can do to make the most of the space and make it work for you.
From both an aesthetic perspective and a functional one, making the most of your smaller kitchen is important. Here are some tips to help you to do that…
Light is important in a smaller room. Using lots of lighting can help to illuminate dark corners and make it feel larger, and you can also use lighter colours to make the room feel lighter and brighter.
Using shelving is not only a good way to create more storage space, but it also gives your kitchen depth and interest which can make the room feel larger than it is. Shelving can be placed on walls and hooks can also be used on ceilings which helps to break up the space a little and also make it feel larger.
Your units and appliances are also important. Integrated units like this semi integrated dishwasher can save a lot of space in the kitchen and you will find that unlike freestanding appliances, you wont have space that is being wasted at the side of the units.
If you do have gaps in the kitchen between units, these also make fantastic storage. These areas can be used for storage of items like bottles and carrier bags.
