A small kitchen can be a beautiful space for cooking and enjoying great food. Here’s a few examples on how to make its small size work for you and your family!
To give the illusion of more space, keep your cabinets lighter in color. White paint brightens rooms, making them feel larger. A hint of pale blue is provided with the subway tile. The effect is soft and pretty.
Having said that, don’t be afraid to add a bold splash of color to a white kitchen. Navy blue paint on lower cabinets and the kitchen island create depth and warmth in a small kitchen.
White paint lends a monochromatic color scheme to a city apartment. Nothing jars the eye, leaving your vision to travel through the galley kitchen to the outdoor balcony. A patterned rug is used to add a little bit of color and interest.
A small kitchen in a guest cottage enjoys bold color with a bit of golden glitz to razzle dazzle visitors.
When a small kitchen is short on natural light with just a single window to let the sun shine in, white cabinets create the opportunity for the light to bounce around. Bright blue lower cabinets ground the space without darkening the room.
A small kitchen doesn’t mean you have to skimp on style. Beautiful wood beams highlight a painted wood plank ceiling. Custom cabinetry with glass fronts open up the space while high-end counter tops add a bit of luxury to the room.
Tall upper cabinets create much needed storage in a city condo. Pale turquoise paint personalizes the small kitchen while a metal pendant light adds the finishing touch. There’s no need for a small room to be uninspiring – you should always feel free to experiment.
Sometimes all that’s needed in a smaller kitchen is high end counter tops to make the room feel rich and welcoming. Pair a gray counter with white cabinets for timeless appeal.
A variety of appliances are available that work well in a small kitchen. Here, a skinny refrigerator fits snugly into its corner. A vaulted ceiling instantly expands the space while a trio of black pendant lights add an interesting focal point.
My own farmhouse kitchen isn’t huge, but I do love its quaint charm. Sometimes I wish I had more counter space but the addition of a free-standing kitchen island and square farmhouse table come in handy when cutting veggies and measuring ingredients. Plus, there’s less kitchen to clean!
