Kitchen / April 3, 2018 / .
When selecting your paint, flooring and fitted kitchen, try to keep everything in the same tone or colour family. Bold, bright contrasting colours work best in large kitchens, whereas subtle differences in tone work best in small to make the most of the space and make it appear larger. Sleek, modern appliances will make the kitchen feel less clunky. Think about the size too, if you do not need a double-dishwasher or American sized fridge, then do not buy them. The smaller sized Smeg fridges will give a kitchen an elegant, sleek sense of style without being too over powering, especially in a small space.
Small kitchens present tough storage challenges. Countertops often become crowded with appliances, but eliminating clutter can help any space feel larger. Use a corner appliance garage in your kitchen and reclaim lost storage space. The cabinet conceals coffeemakers, toasters, and other small appliances, while keeping them easy to access for food prep.
Instead of traditional closed upper cabinets, go for storage that feels airy instead of bulky. Only and repeat only, do this if you are not a tornado in the kitchen, and can keep everything neat and tidy. This is not just keeping things tidy and tucked away, although it is that too. It is about maintaining clean lines, without tons of overly decorative details. Avoid things like corbels and ornate cabinet pulls, and opt for a more minimalist look instead. The small metal hardware and modern cabinet fronts in kitchen keep things open and fuss free.
A small kitchen dictates small-scale furnishings, but take it a step further by choosing a work island, bar chairs, or stools that are visually lightweight, such as this small industrial island. Clean lines do not distract the eye, and the furniture piece allows you to see the floor and walls beyond, making the room feel larger.
