Having a small kitchen can be challenging. Sometimes, there just doesn’t seem to be enough space to do anything. You can make your small kitchen feel bigger by changing some simple design flaws and by finding creative storage ideas.
Copper Pipe Shelving
If you’re lacking wall space and have a window in your kitchen, don’t write it off as unusable space. By putting open copper pipe shelving in front of the window, you can add a lot of storage to your small kitchen. Use it for your dishes, hang mugs from the pipes, and even display spices, coffee, and cutting boards. It all comes down to how you organize the space in order to make it look good. The great part about open copper pipe shelving is that you still get the light from the window, which automatically makes your small kitchen feel bigger.
The paint color in your small kitchen can have a huge impact on how your kitchen feels. If it has dark or muted colors, then it will feel small and cramped. Brighten up the area with an off-white paint, or a light mint green, or a faded light gray-blue. The key here is to choose a light color. You can paint your walls and your kitchen cabinets to make the entire room feel bigger.
Even though counter space is precious, a large sink can make a big difference when you’re doing dishes. If you’re washing dishes in a small sink, then your whole kitchen will feel cramped. Upgrade to a large apron front sink, sometimes called a farmhouse sink, so you can have room to wash pots and pans.
A cluttered kitchen counter will instantly make your kitchen feel and look smaller. By clearing out the clutter, it opens up the space and makes it feel like there is more space to move. There are a lot of different storage ideas that can help you organize your small kitchen.
