It’s a common struggle, kitchen space isn’t easy to come by so you need to utilise every little bit of space that you have and it can be a worry for people as it is often one of the smallest rooms in the house. Just before you consider expanding on your kitchen why don’t you try find a much easier solution by making the most of the space you already have. Here are a few tips you can use to maximise what you already have…
Take Advantage of Space
When you’re limited with kitchen space then it means that you won’t have room for extra cupboards so you have to think outside the box a bit. Be creative, put some hooks on the walls or even shelves as that way you can take advantage of any space you have near the ceiling and you can store kitchen utensils that you don’t use on a regular basis up there.
Completely Avoid Using Dark Colours
Dark colours can actually somewhat look like an illusion by blocking out any light, the best colours to opt for are clean creams and pale cold colours as these will help to reflect natural light and make the room appear larger.
Only Buy What You Need
Sure the American Fridge, massive washing machine and tumble dryer look good but do you actually need them? Ask yourself could you potentially downsize a bit and still get things done. Downsizing appliances can save you a lot of space and it may even make room for extra appliances if you require any, so think before you buy and measure the size space you have to work with.
Don’t let your kitchen get messy prevent clutter is small kitchens by putting away your utensils and small appliances in the correct spaces. Reposition your toaster, microwave, kettle or coffee machine if needed to make it appear as though it offers more space.
