Small kitchen design is quite wonderful. You get to choose great finishes and decide what goes where for your comfort.
I have been very fortunate to have lived in homes with large kitchens and small kitchens. Each provided me with one common thought and that is, it's all about functionality. Appreciation of a great looking space is a fundamental process however, that alone especially in a kitchen just isn't enough. It's has to be a place where your flow is seamless.
Below you can seen a bright open space however, the kitchen work space is actually small.
To the right is a contemporary styled kitchen by the uber cool Italian design by the company Bofi. This type of kitchen is called 'modular' and is free standing. They are super space savers so this may be something worth considering if you're limited on space.
Below are some other examples of modular kitchens which create a fantastic individual small kitchen design. Ideal to add something totally different into your home.
The design is modern and has been cleverly developed to hold everything that is essentail in a kitchen. They may be small but they are smart and totally unique.
The best tip I can give you for any small space is to keep it clutter free. Try to include some excellent storage into
your space to help you get organised! Store the things you frequently use near by
so that they're within easy reach. Clear plastic containers are great to
use and they are especially good and useful in a small space.
If you're able to dine around your kitchen area, select furniture that is proportionate to the surroundings. In other words don't buy big items as these will take up too much space and also make your room look smaller.
Check out this futuristic kitchen below right. This may or may not be your 'to die for' kitchen however, it is a great example of small kitchen design and what can be achieved in a super quirky design. On the left side there is a very practical layout of a convenient kitchen within a minimalistic design. It may be small however, it suits the space.
Keep your lighting soft however, make sure it's bright enough on the worktops so that you can see what you're doing. You don't want to be adding salt into you coffee when you're looking for the sugar! Have a look in the LIGHTING section for some further information.
