INNOVATIVE SMALL KITCHEN DESIGN FOR SMALL SPACES

In today’s world, often kitchen areas are small but using innovative small kitchen design, you can create the illusion of a much larger space. Whether it’s storage, counter space, or cabinetry, there are ways to make the most of a small kitchen with design and strategic layout.

Turning your counter into a counter bar and adding stools adds seating area and transforms the space into a welcoming hub. Another thing to do is keep the countertop and visible items to a minimum. The less exposed to the eye, the less crowded your kitchen will appear. Instead, utilize a few essential accent items that may have a splash of color or shine that may be instrumental in your daily kitchen prep.

In the picture above, you will also notice the use of white. You can create the illusion of expansiveness with white on white in any room. It brightens the space while also providing a clean, modern look. You can either opt for white appliances in a white kitchen or go for a pop of color with an accent colored fridge or appliances.

MODERN KITCHEN DESIGNS FOR SMALL KITCHENS

If you don’t have a lot of space using baskets on top of cabinets solves not only storage but also adds height. Baskets can give a touch of country feel, or used in modern kitchen designs for small kitchens. When spaces are higher, it provides the illusion of it being more extensive.  You can store things up high and make your kitchen look bigger. Do keep in mind though that items stored up top will be more challenging to access regularly, so store things there that aren’t used as often.

Other types of baskets beside wicker baskets are baskets of different kinds of materials such as paper coil, raffia, seagrass, pine, willow, and wisteria. You can also use storage containers such as wooden boxes, brass bowls, or clay pots. Use your imagination, local cultural inspirations, or go for a modern urban feel with state of the art pieces that bring a touch of flair and glamor.

Hanging pots and pans not only makes a kitchen more fun but is also very helpful for storing them. Rather than keeping your expensive pots and pan collection out of sight, you can make them a central feature of your kitchen. High-quality kitchenware is not only attractive but practical and hanging them either on a wall or from the ceiling gives you easy access to what you need when you need it.  Even if you don’t often cook, having them on display will make it appear as if you do.

Other items you can hang to save on storage are things such as plates on walls or kitchen utensils. Use your imagination and a bit of creativity to find what works for not only your space and aesthetic but also your cooking habits and preferences.

CORNER KITCHEN DESIGN

Using plants in a corner kitchen design can make it feel warmer and more inviting. Depending on the type of plants you select, you can change the feel. Other things to consider with plants is the type of pots to use or whether they are hanged. Plants do require sunlight, so if you have a window, plants are a perfect way to add joy and happiness to any space.

Using Subway Tile (vertically aligned tiles) in your kitchen can also help it feel broader and larger than it is. Again white is a good choice here, but you may want to look at other options. If you go with Gloss on the counter or your tiles, this too will help make your space larger in appearance due to the added reflection of light.
