Small kitchen design ideas


Use these simple design ideas to get the most out of your small kitchen space

The kitchen forms an integral part of any house, after all, this is the one spot where everyone catches up with each other after the day is done. However, small apartments have less space dedicated to the kitchen, which can make food preparation and storage quite a task.

There are a few tricks and tips you can employ to make the space seem bigger than what it is. Play with colours – experiment with colour blocking and muted shades; invest in open shelving and etageres, utilise the dining table as an island kitchen while prepping food and plan your lighting smartly, illuminating dark corners and spotlighting the essentials.
