Small kitchen design ideas are something that the kitchen designers at Performance Kitchens & Home specialize in. We all know that the kitchen is often the focal point of the family home. The kitchen is a place to cook, eat, gather, laugh and share in life’s special moments together. When a kitchen’s space is limited, it can take smart small kitchen design planning to create a kitchen that is both functional and aesthetically appealing kitchen. The following are some thought on how you can use small kitchen design to make the most of this incredibly important space in your home:
Brighten It Up!
When using small kitchen design ideas in a limited space, you don’t want to interrupt the line of vision, which can make your kitchen space look smaller than it is. Small kitchens can look bigger than they actually are when you use a predominantly white color scheme.
Incorporate Pull-out Drawers
When countertop space is premium and when size constraints act to limit workspace availability, you can get creative and add space with pull-outs, which increase kitchen work efficiency.
Expand the Fixtures
When space is limited you should try to expand on the kitchen’s fixtures. This can include wall art, clocks, quality drop lights, and other decorative ephemera.
Keeping a kitchen neat and uncluttered goes a long way towards making it seem bigger. Kitchen drawer organizers will keep all your kitchen stuff in place, away from plain sight yet within easy reach.
Minimalism is gaining a lot of favor in small kitchen design ideas. Clean lines, light colors and simple fixtures all help create that illusion of order and space in the kitchen.
Encourage the Light
Open up existing windows as much windows as much as possible to let natural light stream in. The opened windows extend the visual horizon making the room appear bigger.
