Making the Most of a Small Kitchen

A large kitchen is the end goal for most homeowners as they are much easier to navigate and provide a much smoother cooking experience. Unfortunately, the majority of traditional homes in the UK are fitted with compact kitchens that can leave property owners longing for their ideal design. Luckily, the PS Contracts team have a few tricks up their sleeve in order to help clients make the most of their small kitchens without having to sell their family home. Read on to find out more information…

Layout

The way that a room is displayed can affect its size in a variety of different ways. After all, it is important to take the positioning of key appliances like the oven, microwave and sink into consideration in order to ensure that they are easy to navigate for the property owner. As a result, a small kitchen often benefits from a gallery layout and lack of island.

Storage

If there is one thing that a small kitchen tends to lack, it is storage space. In fact, it is not uncommon for homeowners to find that they have to sacrifice certain appliances in favour of others because they simply do not have the room to store them. Luckily, homeowners can take advantage of the walls in order to generate as much space as possible by implementing cabinets and shelves.

Design

When ripping out an existing kitchen and installing a brand-new layout is not an option, it is still possible to make a smaller kitchen seem bigger than it actually is through design. For example, neutral colours, tall cabinets and large floor tiles are all simple features that make a big difference when it comes to kitchen space and size.
