A small kitchen always has its advantages: It is more comfortable, you don’t have to search for different things because everything is at hand. There are some ideas on how to make a small kitchen cool. A rustic kitchen with rough wooden shelves and furniture would look great in a country house. A kitchen with an industrial touch – a rough wall – is cool, especially with smooth surfaces and a kitchen island with a dining area to save space. If your apartment is very small, you can use built-in furniture and appliances and set up a dining area in the main room. A smart idea is to use a long table – this is where you can cook and then clean the table and use it as a dining table. You can find some more ideas below.
Furniture and appliances
What furniture do you need in a small kitchen? First of all, some cooking facilities – cabinets with countertops are welcome! Cabinets also give you enough storage space for various things, and if not enough – choose open shelving, as open shelves don’t look heavy and offer storage space. If you want to visually dissolve, give preference to wall cabinets as these will hide all of the things you keep. Imagine a kitchen island – since the kitchen is small, you can opt for one that doubles as a dining room. If you have enough space, go to a separate dining nook or dining area with a small table and chairs. Built-in appliances save a lot of space, although you can also use the usual ones.
Accessories and decor
Brighten up the room with something bold – artwork, photos, and so on. Freshen up the space with potted greens or blossoms and add tiny details of your chosen style – rustic, farmhouse, minimalist or modern. Pay attention to the lighting, especially if there isn’t much natural light in here. Use pendant lights and wall lights to save space.
