Our Guide To Designing A Kitchen With Minimal Space
Probably everyone’s dream kitchen is a large and spacious one that has all of the best amenities and equipment, but we all know that in reality that isn’t always what we get! The facts are that many households around the country only have a small amount of kitchen space to work with, and we have to come up with fun and inventive ways to make the most of what we have.
Here at Large’s Furniture & Cabinet Makers, we specialise in residential kitchen design in Rockhampton for all space sizes and have lots of different ideas that might work for you. Here are some suggestions for how to design a small and compact kitchen.
Focus On Light
Any room that is filled with natural light automatically feels bigger, so make sure that you make the most of any windows that you have in your kitchen space. Nice big open panes that aren’t burdened with unnecessary curtains or shutters.
A small kitchen can benefit from a small size sink. As long as you can wash a good amount of dishes in it, you don’t need an oversized sink that is going to take up valuable counter room that could be otherwise utilized.
In a similar way to the natural light trick, you want to be choosing bright and light colours to decorate your kitchen. Off whites and duck eggs are perfect for creating an illusion of more space than you actually have.
If you live alone or with just one other person, then you can probably afford to switch out a regular sized fridge for a slimline fridge/freezer combo that doesn’t take up nearly as much space. When you don’t have much room to play with, you don’t want to be hoarding frozen goods and then never actually taking them out to cook with them. A smaller fridge/freezer forces you to be more economical and the freed up space can be used for other things.
