Tips for renovating a small kitchen
The style we want to renovating a small kitchen is something very personal but there are a series of general guidelines that look good in the vast majority of cases and that can help us to gain space and improve the aesthetics of this room in our home.
These are the ones we usually apply to our clients’ projects:
Plan your space
Before starting any renovation project, it is essential to plan properly. Measure your kitchen and draw up a detailed plan. Identify the areas where space can be optimised and think about how you want to distribute the main elements, such as appliances, cupboards and worktops.
Opt for compact-sized appliances that fit perfectly into the space available in your small kitchen. There are many options on the market, such as small fridges, compact dishwashers and small cookers. These appliances will allow you to enjoy all the conveniences without taking up too much space.
Light and bright colours
The use of light colours in a small kitchen can help to visually enlarge the space. Opt for neutral tones, such as white, cream or soft pastels. These colours reflect light and create a feeling of spaciousness. Consider painting walls, cabinets and ceilings in light tones for a more spacious effect.
Good lighting can make all the difference in a small kitchen. Use a combination of general and focused lighting to create different moods and highlight specific areas, such as the cooking area or breakfast bar. You can also incorporate under-cabinet lighting to illuminate work surfaces.
If you have limited space available to open cabinet doors, consider installing sliding doors. These doors do not take up extra space when opened and will allow you to easily access the contents of the cabinets without difficulty.
Minimalist design for small kitchens
Choose a minimalist design for your small kitchen. Avoid cluttering the space with excessive decorative elements and opt for clean, simple lines. A minimalist design will create an elegant and tidy atmosphere, as well as making the kitchen appear larger.
As you have seen, there are different ways of refurbishing a small kitchen to make the most of the space and change its aesthetics to give a feeling of spaciousness. It is not necessary to apply all these tips, you can select those that best fit with the idea you have in mind of what your ideal kitchen should be like.
