There’s no getting away from the fact that modern homes are getting smaller and smaller. As the amount of people living in cities increases living space is in short supply and as such we have to make compromises on style and features to ensure to compensate for the lack of space. One of the first places in the home to loose that extra foot of space is the kitchen. With changing lifestyles a large family sized kitchen is not always required so it’s no surprise that the kitchen is the first place builders tend to shrink when space is an issue.
If you live in a place where the kitchen is small we’ve put together a few design ideas for smaller kitchen spaces.
In small kitchen spaces ensure you utilize the walls and ceilings for storage, Narrow units will help the room feel airy and welcoming while wall mounted kitchen racks will ensure you’re making the most out of the space available.
Glossy, Reflective Units
Letting in as much natural light as possible is really important in small kitchens, Dim, cluttered kitchens should be avoided as they can let a house down by itself. To maximize the space available in a small kitchen open up the windows and install glossy reflective units that create the impression of a larger space.
Utilize Your Windows
The way you use your windows can make or break your room. As mentioned small kitchens needs lots of natural light so try to keep windows free from clutter, avoid drapes and fabrics and use roller blades or window film if privacy is an issue for you.
