Small Kitchen Transformations
You don’t need a huge kitchen for it to be beautiful and functional. When it comes to kitchens, a small area has the ability to be designed uniquely with lots of character. What helps accomplish this is to use the “less is more” approach. For instance, let’s consider your countertops, cabinets, and backsplash.
With less square footage, less counter area and cabinet area you can budget to splurge a little on these items. Within your budget, for example, you may be able to go up a level in granite or quartz.
Cabinets can be ordered with pull-outs to maximizes storage efficiency. With fewer door pulls, knobs, handles or cup pulls to purchase, you can spend a little more in this area to add charm.
There are endless options for your backsplash. You can include in the design high-end tile mixed in with low-cost tile to make a real eye-catching element to your kitchen. Our designer can help give you many ideas and options.
TIP: If your budget has no room for the expensive tile you had your heart set on, create the illusion of expensive tile by adding a strip of similar wallpaper. Today’s wallpaper is amazing. When syles change, so can your wallpaper.
Illusion of Space
You can design the illusion of space by doing these 3 things:
- Install corner cabinets, not blind cabinets.
- Flush style cabinet doors create clean simple lines.
- Under-mount sinks make the countertop appear larger.
With a small kitchen it is important to utilize every inch of the space efficiently. When this is done you can be absolutely sure you will have the storage you need and enjoy using your kitchen.
TIP: When shopping for countertops ask to see if there are any remnants that match the square footage you need. Remnants are discounted no matter what level they may be.
