Beautiful Ways of Sizzling a Small Kitchen

Small spaces may be a sprain to design than the large spaces. There is more to work when you have storage and tight quarters, while you are expected to maintain the style so that the typical kitchen has the required fixtures and function.

Thus, you can save space by using innovative or scaled-down appliances, this includes the freezer drawer, refrigerator, stoves, pint-sized microwaves, and single sinks. Consider a counter-topped cart or a small-scale island to be rolled into a closet when it is not in use.
Open it up
Small kitchens give a claustrophobic feel with cabinets towering overhead in the already tight spaces. In fact, the problem is many cooks are unable to reach them, while there is no room for a ladder or a step stool. If you trade to have open storage as the top cupboards and enjoy an overall boxy feeling, you may consider pot racks, shelving, etc. This will ensure a spacious kitchen look and is also an amazing way of showing off your shiny pans and pots or favorite dishes.

You can counteract it by considering hanging pendant lights bathing in more appetizing color the eating area. Try these ways of increasing the small kitchen size:
- Use incandescent lighting underneath the upper cabinets such that it shines down on the countertops. Have ceiling spotlighting at the cabinetry directed. This will increase the space shadowing and offer a greater visual movement through dark and light contrast such that the entire cabinetry appears cold blue in the fluorescent lighting.
