6 Tricks to Maximize the Space of Your Tiny Kitchen

A pint-size kitchen may seem ideal for most of us, but there are actually lots of ways on how you can make the most out of your small kitchen space. Rather than hating the small details that seem unfixable, consider making some small changes like adding a new coat of paint or putting some additional storage. Although small, these tricks will surely help you like the kitchen that you have – even if it’s not that much.

  1. Go for Open Storage. Unlike close cabinets, open shelves offer the sense of having more space. It’s also a chic way to display your kitchenware – if you’re able to keep everything organized. Bonus points if you’ll be able to find a way to add a washer in your kitchen.

 

  1. Focus on the Small Details. If there’s anything that you can do, focus on the smaller details – especially if you’re living in a rental space. If you’re not allowed to change your kitchen’s layout, then settle for doing some small switch-ups like painting the borders of your cabinets or changing your cabinet knobs. That way, you get to add some personal touch to your kitchen space without breaking the rules of rental décor.

 

  1. Create a Focal Point. An easy and simple way to make your kitchen look bigger is to establish a focal point. Placing a statement pendant, a patterned wallpaper or a unique dining table in your kitchen will surely leave your guests focusing on the décor rather than the size of your kitchen.

 

  1. Go Dark. It may seem odd, but dark cabinets actually look amazing in smaller kitchen spaces. Aside from that, painting your cabinets with similar colours will also give a cool and cosy vibe to your kitchen. Although you can add colour to your walls, white paint can give a nice contrast to your cabinets while making your space feel brighter.

  1. Opt for Double-Duty Furniture. Since you don’t have a lot of room to use, make sure that every piece of furniture in your kitchen has a dual purpose. For instance, create a nook that you can use as your office, a dining area, or a counter space for your food prep.

 

  1. Think of Pot Racks. Short on space? Then utilize the space of your ceiling and walls by using pot racks. Not only is this a great way to organize your cooking utensils in one area, it’s also perfect for freeing up limited counter and cabinet space.

Having a small kitchen space can be really frustrating, but with these space-saving tricks, it’s now possible to maximize and get the most out of your tiny kitchen.
