How to Make the Most of a Small Kitchen

Homeowners often note small rooms as one of their biggest challenges, and tiny space is even more of a hardship in the heart of the home. For those of you plagued with small kitchens, we’ve compiled some helpful tips from House Beautifuland Better Homes and Gardens that will not only make the space look larger, but also will make it more practical and functional for use.

  • Take the cabinets higher to add storage space and a more expansive look.
  • Mirrors make any room look larger. Take advantage of this in the kitchen with a mirrored backsplash.
  • Use any available natural light. If you have a window, limit the treatments to let the light shine in.
  • Knock down part of a wall so the kitchen looks more open.

Of course, remodeling is also a great option when it comes to small kitchens. A kitchen renovation could literally make the room larger or a remodel could incorporate the best cabinets and appliances to make the most of the available space. Gelotte Hommas Architecture in Bellevue, Washington, would be happy to help you solve your tiny kitchen dilemma, so contact us today.
