How often have we heard that a kitchen is the heart of every home? That’s totally true. A kitchen is more than just shiny surfaces, sophisticated stainless steel appliances, stylish cabinets and fabulous backsplash. Even a small kitchen doesn’t need to be plain and cramped. If you’re planning on a small kitchen remodelling, make it a space that is functional and easy to work in by following these experts’ tips.
1) Arrange items in such a way to make easier activities
It’s all about arranging things with how and where will you use kitchen items in mind. To promote effectiveness in your small kitchen, remodel it in such a way like storing breakfast meals and bowls near the dining table. You can also keep aluminium and plastic wraps in a container and store it in a handy spot near the work surface for easier wrapping. Remember to put dishware near the dishwasher to make the unloading process easier.
2) Use a table for two
If you have a very small kitchen and there are only two persons in the home, you can use a table for two instead of the full set dining table. You can also save some square meters by creating a double-function surface that can also be use as a bar or dining table.
3) Round dining table can seat more people
If you live with more than one person in the house, you can opt for a round dining table, which can seat more people compared to its square or rectangle counterparts. Roundtable also makes an optical illusion that your kitchen looks bigger that it actually is.
4) Organize with floating shelves and cupboards
Remodel your small kitchen by adding some floating shelves and cupboards to organize tableware and cutleries, as well as pans and small utensils. That way, you will save some extra square meters to be used as a dining area or additional surface for your cooking and other activities.
5) Take advantage of the windowsill
In a small kitchen, having a windowsill is like a greatest gift. In the kitchen remodelling project, you can place a long, narrow rectangle dining table and use the windowsill as your dining chair. Add a cushion to turn it into a bench, add some fancy pillows, and you’ll get a gorgeous, little dining nook.
