A small kitchen doesn’t mean you can’t have a stylishly decorated and very inviting space. We have shared many common ideas for designing a small space or corner, but today I want to dig deeper and share some clever ideas to create a cozy and comfortable ambiance in your small kitchen. Let’s take a look at the simple and genius ideas I have prepared!
Contemporary aesthetics also make a small space feel bigger because it’s laconic and clean. Such decor usually does not contain many details and items, which means that you can get a beautiful kitchen design without making it smaller. Make sleek cabinets and countertops and don’t be afraid to add color to your kitchen. Remember to create a visual contrast between the cabinets or at least use some building materials like wood, plywood, marble, stone, etc. to add more interest to the space – a contemporary, sleek space doesn’t mean having a boring one!
The more light you have in a room the bigger it seems – this tip always works and I think if you use it it will not only make your kitchen look bigger but also more inviting. If you have large windows and possibly skylights, filling your kitchen with natural light is ideal. However, you will also need built-in lights, chandeliers or pendant lights. I would highly recommend putting some lights on the top cabinets or along the kitchen splashback to make cooking more comfortable.
Many homeowners tend to make their small kitchens too laconic and therefore boring, believing that lighter shades are optimal and no clutter or decoration is needed. We recommend some colorful details and prints to make your space more interesting and inviting, and to improve your mood as you walk in. A bold tile backsplash, colorful rug, bold cabinetry and even appliances will help you achieve this effect.
An opposite idea of going all white with no colorful accents can also be nice and maybe more popular for those who love minimalism. Add some marble, whitewashed wood or brick to add interest and texture to your kitchen.
