Working with less square footage in your kitchen shouldn’t hold you back from a wonderful kitchen design! Small kitchen redesign ideas are smart and stylish. We understand the challenges of working with limited space, so each decision must enhance the look or functionality of your kitchen. Let’s jump into these small kitchen redesign tips and inspiration!
Tried and True Light
This is always considered a tried and true tip for any type of home or room design: add more light. Having ample lighting in a kitchen is essential anyways, so there are plenty of ways you can mix up the lighting situation in your kitchen. Go for statement light fixtures for added visual interest. Plus, changing your ceiling lights don’t take up any precious kitchen floor space.
Clean and Classic
Keeping your small kitchen redesign clean and classic usually gives the impression of more space than there is. Subway tiling backsplash or light-colored wood floors are simple and elegant details that look timeless in many designs. Try keeping the color-scheme bright and neutral to make the kitchen feel more open.
Cabinets and Shelves
Storage gets trickier with smaller spaces. Maximize every inch of your small kitchen in order to find more areas to install cabinets. Even having your cabinets reach the ceiling or over the range hood will increase your storage space dramatically. Opt for simple, or no hardware on your cabinet doors make the design feel minimal. Conversely, open shelves are a practical and space-saving choice that lends itself to many customizations. Glass, wood, or metal shelves add interesting contrast when mounted across the kitchen walls.
Some homeowners love the look of small kitchens because it has an inherently cozy feel. Using the right accents like gold hardware, toasty colors, and an area rug can give more warmth and personality to a small workspace.
Do you have a small but open kitchen that leads into living space? Or do you have an eat-in kitchen? Coordinate your kitchen design elements to flow seamlessly into the next room to give the impression of a more expansive space. This can be done using the same flooring and wall color in both areas or using similar textures and materials to decorate the rooms to create a cohesive design.
