Here are a few tips on how to make the most of a small space.

Organise strategically

If you decide to add shelves for additional storage you want to avoid the cluttered look. Arrange bowls, mugs or utensils by colour so that everything appears cohesive and easy on the eye!

Keep it clutter-free

Your kitchen should be a functional space. Clutter-free worktops create the illusion of a more spacious area.  Whether the clutter is on the work surfaces, shelves, floor, or in the cabinets, all it does is make an already small kitchen appear even smaller. Begin by purging! take aside away any utensils, cutlery and even food you no longer need, use, or has gone out of date. The next step is to make the best use of the storage spots available in your kitchen, pack away everything (neatly) into your cupboards, there are even smart storage pieces available that work great in those pesky corner cupboards helping you make the most of a space that usually goes to waste. If you don’t have the space for a pantry pull out larders are a great practical and alternative place to store your cereals, tins and seasonings.

Appliance placement

Strategic placement of your kitchen appliances can improve the ‘flow’ of a small kitchen. Simply just storing away appliances that you don’t use every day such as blenders, toasters, slow cookers etc can free up much-needed work surface space!

Bright & Simple Lighting

A statement light piece works great in small kitchens with high ceilings. However, you want to avoid this if you have a low ceiling as needless light fittings can make the kitchen appear cluttered. Integrated lighting in smaller kitchens works very well as they are small yet provide bright light making the kitchen appear larger and airier, even during dull and dark days.

Colour schemes

Simplicity is key. White is a classic colour which not only naturally reflects light but creates a simple seamless space making the room appear larger and can even be enhanced an additional pop of colour. Remember that too much colour creates visual barriers which can actually make your kitchen appear smaller and more cluttered. You want to stick to one or two colours and select similar shades for the flooring, walls, cabinets and work surfaces.
