Top tips for renovating small kitchens
Small spaces can be challenging when renovating. It’s tricky to achieve function and form when you have limited space to work with.
It is important to carefully consider the kitchen layout before you get started, here are our top tips to get the best results when renovating a tiny kitchen space:
1. AVOID BULKY HANDLES
Concealed handles are the best choice for petite spaces as every centimetre counts. Avoid bulky handles and go for push-to-close cupboard doors or finger pull drawers.
2. OPT FOR TALL BUILT IN CABINETS
The standard height for kitchen cabinets is usually about 60cm. However, cabinet makers can make you taller cabinets which will allow you to make the most of your space.
3. SAVE BENCH SPACE
Under mount sinks are great because they give more bench space. You can also purchase draining trays and even chopping boards to sit within a sink, giving it double functionality.
4. GET THE MAXIMUM USE FROM YOUR CUPBOARDS
To get the most storage out of cupboards and draws incorporate clever space savers such as pull out bins, pot and pan slide out trays, and drawer organizers. A pull out pantry is another great option if it is possible in your space.
5. INTEGRATE APPLIANCES
By integrating as many appliances as possible you can save bench space and get a more streamlined look. By reducing clutter you can make a petite kitchen feel more spacious and organized, and increase efficiency and functionality.
6. THINK LIGHT AND BRIGHT
When selecting a colour palette for paint, cupboards and bench tops, go for lighter shades that give the illusion the space is larger than it is. LED strip lights under top cupboards are a great addition for task lighting and also a space saver.
