Definitions of small size kitchens vary depending on location and of course, one’s understanding of ‘small’. But like you will find out, any kitchen that is less than 126 square feet is considered small. This does not mean in any way that you cannot and should not remodel a kitchen that small. All you need to do is consider the following tips kitchen ideas.
Your kitchen’s layout is extremely important. If it is less than 200 square feet, then incorporate the triangular working model. This allows the refrigerator, sink and stove to be placed in such a way that few strides need to be taken while working in the kitchen.
Reduce the amount of clutter on your countertop. That’s all! Simply go for kitchen shelves and cabinets for your daily necessities. To make your work easier, go for double stacked kitchen storage cabinets which use vertical space. Do not go for large cabinets if you have a small kitchen. You won’t use much of the space they come with.
Your kitchen decor should not compromise two things; light and space. Keep in mind that lighting in itself is considered as a form of kitchen decor. Keep in mind too that the placement and positioning of natural and artificial light sources in the kitchen can significantly contribute to the illusion of a sizeable kitchen. That is why you have to choose the right decor that can blend with the kitchen’s paint. With that in mind, seek the services of an interior designer.
Pantry cabinets are more than just ideal for small kitchens. What’s more, they are affordable and often last for long. Just remember to go for one that stretches up to the ceiling. This will offer you a nice place to store items that you hardly use in the kitchen.
