Small kitchen? No problem!

Having a small kitchen can be discouraging when looking to upgrade. Here are some pro tips to turn a small kitchen into an attractive room with maximum space and more storage.

 

TALLER CABINETS, MORE STORAGE

You may not have enough walking room in your kitchen for larger cabinets, but taller cabinets are a great upgrade in a kitchen with taller ceilings. Rather than a standard 36" upper cabinet, choose a 42" upper cabinet to maximize storage in the given space.

 

LIGHTER COLORS OPEN THE ROOM

Light colors can be the difference between a claustrophobia inducing clutter, and a welcoming, open kitchen. Choosing a lighter finish for the cabinets creates the illusion of a more open space. Darker colors tend to make rooms look smaller, plus, dark wood shows more dust and scratches which can become a problem in a busy kitchen.

 

STAY NEAT

In a small kitchen, counter space is a rare and valuable resource. Try to minimize the number of containers and trinkets on the counter. Find a cabinet or drawer that can be dedicated to these various items. Roll-out trays are a great tool that can be used in a small kitchen to maximize storage.
