“Although it might be small it is always mighty,” the saying may not be exactly about interior designing but it sure does come in handy when describing a small kitchen. Just because you have a small kitchen does not mean you can’t fill it with beautiful décor that makes the space feel bigger and more put together. The key is selecting key pieces and working them in. We have put together a list of small kitchen décor options to help you achieve your perfect look.
A modernly decorated kitchen is the perfect way of having a small space feel larger. The reason being modern décor is typically sleek which means there aren’t as many components to it just a beautiful trendy kitchen design.
Multiple Light Fixtures
The brighter the room the larger it will appear. That is when having multiple different similar light fixtures will come in handy. You want to display a few light fixtures that make sense to brighten the room while providing an intricate focal point that doesn’t take away from the space.
Instead of trying to make the kitchen area appear larger consider embracing the size of it by working around that by adding color. Color is excellent for any area that needs a bit of an upgrade without having to do much work. The brighter the color the better.
There is something whimsical about having an all-white kitchen. There is just this sense of an undeniable peace that screams beauty. This is a perfect idea for a small kitchen because white is brightening so pair it with a few key color elements to allow the area to have a personality of its very own.
Do not be afraid of darker cabinets because in all reality they can make the space feel edgy and masculine instead of small. The key is working with darker hues that make sense to the space. If it doesn’t feel trendy, don’t add the hue.
Vintage kitchen island
Kitchen islands can be great, but they can also be large and take up a lot of room. Instead of having a traditional kitchen island consider having a vintage one. Vintage kitchen islands are smaller and more compact which makes them perfect for smaller areas.
Minimalist yet colorful
Minimal décor does not mean it can’t have essential pieces, it simply means the essential pieces are less bold. Keeping it minimal allows you to work in color easily and effortlessly. Use a combination of bold hues and neutrals to create an elegant contrast.
One mistake many homeowners do when they realize they have a small kitchen is they keep the space simple with little to no décor. However, what this does is create a bland effect that makes the kitchen feel impersonal. Instead of maintaining the space bland change the flooring. Consider a colorful, bold floor or even tiles put together in a pattern.
Do not underestimate cabinets and what they can do for the kitchen. Custom cabinets are excellent because they were created specifically to fit the sizing of your kitchen. Therefore, they will take up less space but have the same amount of interior space.
Wallpaper is another excellent way to add color and texture to a small space. Apply wallpaper to an accent wall for that pop of color that is not overwhelming. Choose a pattern that stands out yet feels natural to the space. Doing so will make it easier to decorate around it.
