If you are working with a small kitchen area and are looking for ways to make the most of the space you have, then we have some fun and unique ideas to help you do just that!



The first thing that comes to mind is storage. Being savvy with your storage can make your life ten times easier and more functional, as the last thing you want is to come home to clutter. Mixing it up with some open shelves allows you to have extra storage as well as get creative with some fun décor. Openly showcasing your best cutlery, crockery, and pantry supplies in neat glass jars can add some aesthetically pleasing elements to your kitchen.



Using bright or bold colours will help to enhance the space, such as using contrasting colours. You can add colour by simply painting your kitchen cabinets or making your kitchen island a focal point.



Opting for slimline appliances, where possible, will save on space. Options such as an under-counter fridge will make the world of difference when working in tight spaces.



Natural lighting is a game-changer. This is a great way to make a space feel larger as well as enhance the entire look and feel of the room. Try not to block natural lighting by placing appliances or other objects directly in front of a window – instead, ensure that you have as much light coming through as possible.


Breakfast Nook

Breakfast bars have become a huge trend as of late, as has become a popular option when you do not have enough space for a dining table and chairs. Instead, opt for a small but practical integrated breakfast bar with high stools. This doubles up as great counter space for food preparation.



Lastly, mirrors offer a great optical illusion for making small spaces feel bigger and brighter. Using a mirrored backsplash can serve as a great feature wall as well as make your kitchen look and feel bigger than it is.
