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

Keep it clutter-free

Your kitchen should serve a practical purpose. Clutter-free worktops create the illusion of a more spacious area. Clutter on work surfaces, shelves, the floor, and in cupboards only serves to make an already small kitchen appear much smaller. Start with a purge! Remove any tools, silverware, and even food that you no longer require, use, or that has expired.

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 allowing you to make the most of a space that would otherwise be wasted. 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.

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!

Appliance placement

The ‘flow’ of a small kitchen can be improved by strategically placing kitchen appliances. Simply putting away appliances such as blenders, toasters, and slow cookers that you don’t use every day will free up much-needed work area 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 well as they are small yet provide bright light, making the kitchen appear larger and airier, even during dull and dark days.

Colour schemes

The importance of simplicity cannot be overstated. White is a timeless colour that not only naturally reflects light but creates a simple seamless space making the room appear larger, and can even be enhanced using an additional pop of colour. Keep in mind that too much colour can create visual barriers which can 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.
