How to Make the Most of a Small Kitchen
A great kitchen should be functional and attractive, and it should have the perfect amount of "flow". If the kitchen in your home is smaller than average, achieving all of those things might seem impossible. However, no matter how large or small your kitchen is, if you utilize the space in a smart and creative way, you can create a comfortable, attractive, and workable environment.
The first thing you want to consider when you're renovating a kitchen how you use it most frequently. But if your kitchen is very small, you'll also need to put a strong emphasis on storage, which is likely to be your biggest challenge. The professional Macomb County renovators at P&B Finishers, Inc can help you design the perfect kitchen, no matter how much (or little) space you have.
Here are a few tips to help you make the most of a kitchen with limited space:
Focus on the Most Important Details First
When you're working with a smaller place, you need to be certain that you're using all of the space you have available, and using it wisely. Consider how you use your Macomb County home's kitchen the most and start there with the design:
- If you cook frequently, try adding features that will make that easier and more fun. A bigger food prep area, chopping block, and stainless steel surface can be fit into a smaller space and make cooking much easier. Stainless steel can also be used to place hot pans or cooked foods.
- If you're interested in baking, the most important part of your kitchen renovations will be a proper countertop.
- If you use the kitchen to socialize or it's where your kids do homework, be sure to include a great seating area first and foremost.
Add a Kitchen Island
If you have a small kitchen in your Macomb County home, a kitchen island is a must-have! Counter-tops are prime real estate in your kitchen, and putting in a kitchen island will give you more of it. Kitchen islands can also be used for storage, as a food prep area, or even an eating space.
Work with Your Lighting
The lighting of any room can dramatically change the way that it feels, and smaller kitchens can feel a lot bigger with atmospheric lighting. Pendant lights in the eating area, incandescent lighting underneath upper cabinets, or spot lighting above the counters can make the kitchen feel warmer, more open, and more comfortable.
