Choose the correct color scheme
Don’t go with what color you like but go with what color looks best here. You might like colors that are bright and bold or maybe even dark whereas the small space in your kitchen needs something light to make the kitchen look bright and airy and larger than it is. Light colors reflect light and make the surroundings airier, which makes it an illusion that the space is big whereas darker hues tend to make their surrounding look compact than it is. For small kitchens, prefer using white and natural hues such as wood. You can use silver as the color for your appliances.
Limit the cabinetry
Cabins take up most of the space in a kitchen. To make more space and less limitation, try to accumulate the cabinets in a precise manner. For example, if you have a cabinet on the opposite walls try remodeling them and get them to just one side of the kitchen. Group the cabinets vertically for extra space. Use sliding doors to open the cabinets and drawers that have a lot of capacity. Try and utilize the space such that you can roam around and cook freely and still have lots of space for storage.
Focus on good lighting
This is the aspect often neglected while designing a kitchen. For small kitchens, lighting is one of the important points. Lighting can either make or break the whole look of the kitchen. make sure you have a good source of light in your kitchen whether it be a good big window or bright lights fitted to make the kitchen brighter. Use good lights in your kitchen and try using the white ones instead of the colored ones. Windows can make a huge difference as they bring natural light into the room and makes it look spacious.
Customize your space
You can customize and make certain things multipurpose. Cabinets and drawers can be customized to the space available or according to the shape or design of the walls. You can customize the kitchen island and utilize it and both the island and a dining table. Plan accordingly and build some high-functioning kitchen with multipurpose furniture.
