The Cosy Kitchen Part 1

Oct 7, 2022 | Blog

Over the coming weeks we are going to explore some ‘cosy kitchen’ or small kitchen design ideas, as well as look at some of the things that you can do to prep yourself for a new year refurb.

1. Natural light

Prioritising natural light is a must when you’re working with any type of small space as it can well and truly maximise and enhance the feel of a room. Boxy small fitted kitchens positioned around the window are sure to restrict light within the space, so opting for open shelving is an option worth considering as well as inserting a sink below a window.

2. Slimline

Not all small kitchen ideas are super pretty, some have to be practical too. When it comes to choosing appliances for a small or even tiny kitchen, opting for slimline versions is a great solution to tight spaces. Not only will you save on space but it will probably better suit your needs and decrease your energy use too.

3. Favourite Features

Small but perfectly formed, having a small kitchen doesn’t have to mean compromising on the features you love. Draw attention to design features such as high ceilings, quirky shapes or a state of the art range. Showcasing your favourite elements means you could loose space but clever custom designed built in appliances and floor to ceiling cabinets can add it back for a high quality, considered small space.

4. Floor Attention

Adding bold patterns and colours into a small kitchen can be tricky and overwhelm the space. So instead of spending ages trying to choose a wallpaper that works or a paint colour that isn’t too much, look to the floor for adding pattern and colour instead.

Whether you’re looking for practical small space storage solutions or just need inspiration on which colours will give the illusion of space, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. We’d love to help!

Have a great weekend
