Kitchens have always been considered one of the most important places in a house. Although there was a time when the basic emphasis was not on the design of a kitchen but things are no longer the same.
Good kitchen design means having a layout for your kitchen that provides an efficient and pleasant area in which to prepare meals and do related tasks.
Since we have a small kitchen to design, the problem of designing a great kitchen boils down to just what you can fit and where.
To create a more spacious look for your small kitchen design, it is recommended to design it with more unique storage solutions, mixing natural and ambient lighting, taking advantage of more space saving appliances, and adding personalized touches.
A small kitchen design requires creativity in coming up with storage solutions. Some ideas to try include:
· Putting an island in the center of the kitchen that can provide freestanding storage that is also convenient from any spot in the kitchen.
· The use of light colored cabinets with glass doors.
· Another interesting challenge in small kitchen design is creating an illusion of space with under cabinet lighting or under the counter. You can use glass tile for your wall and with the proper type of lighting the kitchen can be made to appear larger and more pleasing.
Remember most kitchens are small. When you look in kitchen design magazines you naturally notice that the kitchens featured are large and so you might think your small kitchen in inadequate. But good small kitchen design means being able to create space and incorporating ample storage facilities and being able to fit in all the necessary appliances.
