With property prices in South Africa forever skyrocketing, there’s not many of us that can afford a home with a large, luxurious kitchen. Most of us have to make do with smaller spaces, including kitchens.
And this is not always a bad thing, as a smaller kitchen can be easier to clean, and allows for truly charming designs. As professionals in kitchen designs in Pretoria, Cupboard Value gives you a few ideas on how you can make a small kitchens really work in your favour.
Keep the Kitchen Free of Clutter
Your smaller kitchen can easily feel a whole lot smaller if the countertops are cluttered. You also don’t want to have unused items taking up your storage space. It would be a good idea to a complete declutter of your kitchen every few months.
Working with a Professional Kitchen Designer
If you really feel as though your kitchen is too small to work with, getting the help of a professional kitchen designer may help you gain insight in how your kitchen can be tweaked or renovated to suit your needs better.
Use Light Colours
Dark colours in a smaller kitchen may make the space feel dingy, but light colours tend to open the space up and make it feel larger and brighter. Stick to neutrals with bright pops of colour if you have a kitchen that’s on the smaller side.
Adding a mirror as a backsplash or behind open shelving is an easy an affordable way to trick the eye into thinking that the space is actually larger than it really is. The same goes for any other type of reflective surface.
Every kitchen needs sufficient storage for cutlery, crockery, appliances etc. In the case of a smaller kitchen, you may need to look into alternative storage and ensure that you’re making the most of the vertical storage space available to you.
