If you could give your kitchen a makeover, would it be big with a lot of open space, or small and crowded?
I think most of us would want to knock down a wall or two, but in reality, expanding your kitchen can be expensive so this may not be an option.
It might be a good idea to work with the existing charm of your small kitchen, so here’s the good news, there are some tricks of the custom kitchen design trade to help you with this dilemma
1. Keep it simple
When it comes to the overall design of your kitchen, using clean, simple lines to style your space is your most useful tool
2. Use Similar Colours
To keep your design continuous, paint your cabinets the same colour as your walls.
This will erase the visual boundaries that having contrasting colours creates.
Stick with lighter hues and pale colours that tend to reflect light and make the space appear larger.
3. How about recess storage
Keeping clutter from your countertops and having proper storage space is important to keeping a small kitchen working like a large one.
Recessed storage is a great way to maximise your storage space while keeping your countertops and flooring space open for cooking and food preparation.
4. Open shelving
Open shelving creates an interesting effect, because it keeps the space from appearing broken-up giving the illusion of a more expansive space.
Open shelving is also a great way to keep counter space open. You can use your open shelves to display your favourite focal pieces or to store everyday essentials for easy access.
These ideas will help enlarge a small kitchen space, but if you have any questions or need help with a custom design, please get in touch
