A kitchen, no matter its size, is one of the most important rooms in the house. Everyone gathers in the kitchen, but what do you do if your kitchen is too small to hold your family? Can it still be an important room if it’s small? Absolutely it can and these small kitchen design tips below may even be able to make it seem bigger.
Many kitchens have a lot on their countertops. There’s the cookie jar, the toaster, the coffee maker, the sugar, coffee, and tea containers, among others. If your kitchen is small, any of that you can put away will help add space as well as a decorative touch to your kitchen. Clutter is never decorative, but clean lines in the kitchen can be. Having all of these things in the cabinets instead of on the countertops will create the clean lines.
Believe it or not, one of the keys to small kitchen design and decorating is bright colors whic will help to open up the kitchen. If you prefer the wood grain for your cabinets, the walls can be painted a bright color. A textured look, depending on the texture, and color of the mix, can add to the openness of the room. A soft yellow, sky blue, or field green may be a good choice for this room because they are all colors that are reminiscent of the expansive outdoors. They will help add to the illusion of more space. If you’d rather take on the look of painted cabinets, again, choosing the softer shades will be a nice touch to the cabinets and it will also enhance the space in the kitchen.
If you have wall space and would like to display artwork on the walls, choose just a few pieces so as not to clutter the walls. If possible, choose pieces with scenery of open spaces. This will further enhance the illusion of space in the kitchen while retaining an inviting decor. Make sure the pieces that you display are not large. A moderate sized few paintings add a nice decorative touch to a small kitchen.
Functional items with decorative touches are another nice touch to this kitchen. These will add to the decor while being necessary pieces of your kitchen. A holder for your cooking utensils made designed to match the colors or items in your kitchen will enhance it without making it look cluttered. These are great items for the small kitchen because you will use them often, yet they become wonderful integrated parts of your decor.
A small kitchen is one with a cozy feel. It brings everyone together and strong bonds are made in this room. A feeling of unity within the decor of the room further enhances those bonds created by friends and family.
