A small kitchen can be frustrating, especially if you love to cook. But sometimes, you simply have to try and make the most of what you have got to work with. The good news is that even the smallest of kitchens can be turned into a functional and stylish space in your home with the right steps. We’ve put together some tips to help you create more storage space in your small kitchen and hide the clutter, while improving the overall look and feel.

Keep Colors Simple

A small space can quickly look overcrowded if there are too many different colors going on at the same time, so it’s best to keep it simple. Pick one or two colors that you like and stick with it. Natural colors like beige combined with white and black tend to look very stylish in a kitchen, and this can help your smaller kitchen appear more spacious and airier too. You can find complementing kitchenware including plate sets from Kinto. The Kinto range from SSENSE includes some seriously stylish pieces including kettles and jugs to complete your kitchen’s look.

Hang Your Pots Up

If you’re short on cupboard space, then hanging up your pots and pans instead of stacking them in a cupboard can be a simple yet seriously effective way to create instant storage space. And, pans hanging up in a kitchen can be a feature that is both decorative and functional at the same time. You can find stylish pot rails that will fit in with your décor, and even invest in a brand-new set of pots and pans that match everything else to create a stylish and uniform look.

Use Integrated Appliances

Integrated appliances can make a small kitchen look much more stylish and less cluttered. Cupboard doors covering your appliances means that you’ve not got items like the fridge or freezer dominating the space and you can easily match the doors to the rest of your kitchen cabinets. This can also make the kitchen appear larger as even though you know that there are appliances behind those cabinet doors, it does look like you’ve got more cabinet space at first glance.

Use Cabinet Tidies

When you’re working with a small kitchen that might not have a huge amount of cabinet space to use, the good news is that you can get various inexpensive tools to keep things organized inside the cabinets and make the most of the space. For example, you can get shelves for stacking your tableware in a corner easily without the risk of it breaking or shelves for your pantry so that you can make the most of the space and easily see what’s at the back of the cupboard too.

Small kitchens feature in lots of houses, but just because your kitchen is small in size, doesn’t mean that it can’t look great at the same time. If you are dealing with a small kitchen space, there are several things that you can do to open it up, maximize storage and create a stunning look.
