Kitchen Design Ideas for Small Kitchens

Posted on November 2, 2018

Given that every home has a kitchen, people are looking for interesting ways to decorate it. With smaller kitchens however, decorating can be a difficult task. Keep in mind that a good kitchen should have three distinct areas; namely, the storage area, the preparation area and the cleaning area. In addition to this, you will also need to think about other necessary elements such as kitchen lighting and aesthetics. To give you an idea on how to decorate a small kitchen, look for a good kitchen showroom with display areas catering to smaller kitchens. This way, you will have an idea on how to proceed. Here are a few more tips you can use to decorate your own small kitchen.

Proper Lighting

A well-lit kitchen will look larger than a dimly lit kitchen. Make sure to have an adequate number of lighting fixtures to illuminate your kitchen. You should also use under cabinet lighting to light up dark areas like kitchen counters.


Mirrors are a great way of adding the illusion of space to a small area. Some designers refer to this as negative space and it is a good method of fooling the eyes into thinking that a room is larger that it seems.

Smaller Kitchen Appliances

If you have a small kitchen, going for large appliances such as a three-door fridge or a full sized oven might not be a good idea. Look for smaller appliances that can help free up additional space in your kitchen. In small rooms, every single square inch you can free up can be used for something else.

Avoid Unnecessary Clutter

If you find yourself lost in a kitchen with too much clutter, it’s time to take out the “trash.” Go through all of the items in your kitchen. If you find items that you don’t use on a weekly basis, then maybe you don’t need them.
