Usually kitchens tend to be at the heart of the home and the most-used room in the house. You need to be able entertain, cook, bake – but what happens when you don’t have enough room and are struggling for space in your kitchen?
Maximise your Kitchen Space with Clever Design
There are several ways on which you can make the most of the space you have got and we have included a few of these here:
Storage – this is key with small kitchens. You can utilise wall space by building cabinet storage upwards to store pans, baking trays and small appliances such as toasters. This helps to keep your work surfaces free from clutter and give you more room for preparing food. Another option is to go for open shelving for cookbooks and crockery or wall hooks/magnetic strips for pots, pans and utensils.
Flooring – this needs to be practical as well as stylish and large tiles are perfect for creating the illusion of space in a room and require less maintenance than smaller tiles. A light grey or beige colour is ideal to contrast against lighter coloured units and adds to the feeling of space.
Décor – clever use of paint shades and types are a really good way to make your kitchen appear bigger than it really is. Pale shades with a glossy finish are good at reflecting light, so painting your kitchen cabinets or introducing some white accessories is a good idea. Using white tiles will also help with this and to keep your kitchen looking as fresh and clean.
Underfloor Heating – the perfect solution for small kitchens, as this will be sufficient to heat the area and you can save wall space that would normally be taken up with a traditional radiator.
