Small kitchen design is more commonly had in modern kitchen design today. More people live in smaller home or apartment with small kitchen space. It increases the demands to have effective kitchen design so the space can be still functional and comfortable to cook and prepare the foods. Not only for single homeowner, but small families also often own a small kitchen. So you can also be nice and functional since you plan the designing well. Make sure the kitchen design can carry all tasks although the space is limited. Use every space efficiently in order to use every square foot effectively.
To start this project of designing your small kitchen, you will need some things such as ruler, graph papers, and pencil.
Make the Kitchen Plot
By using a piece of graph paper, plot the measurements of your kitchen on it. To make accurate size, make every square foot of the kitchen same with one square of the graph paper. Also draw every immovable fixture of the kitchen such as doors, windows, power outlets, pipes, etc. with certain marks.
Special Spot for Cabinetry
As a dominant feature of the kitchen, you should prepare special space for the cabinetry. Make sure the small kitchen design has every area for cooking, washing up, preparing foods, and serving. Determine every main appliance you need to have in the kitchen such as sink, cooker, and refrigerator. Place each appliance in the right spot but keep away them from door. To save the space, don’t install unnecessary appliances and items. Prefer to choose compact appliances, under floor heating system or wall mounted radiator (that is cheaper) so you will reduce the clutter.
Perfect Furnishing Designs
The right furnishing designs should be chosen for your small kitchen so it looks larger. Tall cabinets in light colors are great options to bring more spacious look. Make sure you have sufficiently high ceilings in the kitchen. On the high cabinets, you can store seasonal things that are seldom to use.
For tiny space of kitchen, you can choose foldable table with tucked stools. If you don’t have sufficient countertops, you can alternate the food preparing zone to cutting boards. Wall-mounted faucets with goose neck design are perfect for small kitchen sink. Choose kitchen sink with cabinetry beneath it so the space can be used as storage solutions. Besides, you can install mirrored backsplashes as a trick to make the small kitchen design looks larger.
