Small Kitchens

Not all homes are blessed with spacious rooms, but that doesn’t mean you have to settle for a drab kitchen.

There are plenty of small kitchen design ideas to play around with. And here at Designer Kitchens, we can help you to make the most of the space you have and create a stunning kitchen.

Small Kitchen Layout

When it comes to small kitchen design, the layout is arguably more important than the size.

We recommend using the “working triangle” theory – clustering your fridge/freezer, oven and sink together for easy access. This will help to free up space for a table and seating.

Keeping your kitchen units to one wall will help to create a more linear look whilst saving on floor space. Offering an uninterrupted length of counter space, this type of small kitchen layout will make your room more functional.

A galley layout is great for rooms with smaller footprints. With cabinetry occupying one or both walls, it ensures you have the work surfaces and appliances you need, as well as practical storage for your kitchen essentials.

If there’s not enough room for a dining table and chairs in your compact kitchen, a breakfast bar or small island with stackable stools are both excellent alternatives and will ensure you have somewhere to eat with your family.

Small Kitchen Remodel

If your kitchen is on the smaller side, you may benefit from using a German make of kitchen. These typically incorporate streamlined units, allowing you to move freely around your kitchen, and reflective surfaces which help to create the illusion of more space.

Neutral colour schemes are often used in compact kitchens, including white and pale grey. White walls and units are guaranteed to make your tiny space feel bright and open, but they can also look a little clinical. Grey, on the other hand, can soften your interior and provide a cosy feel. It can be combined with various colour palettes too, helping to deliver design impact.

Another way to maximise space in small kitchens is to opt for handleless cabinets or those with integrated handles. As well as giving your kitchen a sleek and stylish look, you won’t need to worry about knocking into handles or knobs or getting your clothes hooked up on them.

To get the most out of your small kitchen remodel, you need to use every corner and wall. But keep in mind, whilst wall cabinets are great for freeing up floor space, use too many and you run the risk of making your room feel darker and more claustrophobic.
