5 Genius Ideas for a Small Kitchen in Your Home
When looking at brand new fitted kitchens in the catalogue or online, they’re all big and spacious. If you have a small, or more bijou kitchen space, you might find yourself gazing in lust. However, you can utilise space really well by incorporating a few of our definite ideas for a small kitchen, making your small kitchen both more stylish and more practical!
Thinking positively, a small kitchen space means a cheaper renovation and its going to cost a lot less to get a brand new fitted kitchen in your tiny space than a big room might cost to fill, and with our genius ideas for a small kitchen too, you’ll be well on your way to at least feeling as though you have lots of space!
Top of the list on our ideas for a small kitchen is to clear some space! It seems obvious but the first step on our ideas for a small kitchen is to declutter! Kitchens come with lots of appliances and accessories and by only leaving out what you use daily, you can expand your counter space, and let’s be honest, have you used that breadmaker since you got it last year?
Increasing the Counter Space
If you’re having a new fitted kitchen, talk to us about increasing the counter space with a few simple ideas. Hinged counters that fold up when not in use are a great solution, and sink units can become chopping boards with the right fittings too.
Walls and Ceilings
Forget pictures, use that extra wall space for pot racks and extra shelving, you can even hang your pan rack from the ceiling to empty out an entire cupboard and use every bit of space you have! Additional narrow shelves in even the smallest space can add lots of storage, and those unused corners can offer another space for extra shelving too.
Light those Dark Corners
Although this won’t actually give you any space, spotlights and lighting all the dark corners can at least make a room feel more bright and spacious! A single light on the ceiling can create lots of dark corners but spotlights and under cupboard lights can combat this giving an impression of light and space.
A Moveable Feast
We’re not suggesting inviting Hemingway around for dinner, but his book title offers a little inspiration. If you want to dine in your kitchen but don’t really have the space, look at furniture that can be folded away, drop leaf tables, fold up bar stools and a moveable breakfast bar can offer loads of extra room, and it doesn’t need to be up all the time. If you’re looking for extra counter space then a butcher’s block or rolling cart can offer a ton of storage without being a fixed fitting!
And mostly, talk to our team of professional kitchen fitters and let us know your budget, and we can offer our professional advice and ensure that you get a small, but spacious kitchen that you can use for years ahead.
