How to Make the Most of a Small Kitchen

A luxury kitchen renovation is possible for homes and kitchens of any size. All it takes is a little creativity, and a small kitchen can be transformed into a luxury haven, completely bespoke to your aesthetic and lifestyle needs.

The best interior design methods for bespoke kitchens involve storage solutions, intelligent design, intentional colour palettes and a creative consideration of floor space.

So, what steps can you take to make the most out of your small kitchen?

Storage Solutions

Storage is one of the most important elements of a new kitchen renovation, especially for smaller spaces. Maximising every inch, including additional storage, and reorganising the floor plan to one that complements the room will transform a small kitchen into a stylish yet intelligently functional room.

The right storage will help to keep your kitchen free from clutter and keep your home looking sleek and stylish. Consider both your floor and wall space – can additional shelving units be added where a cupboard won’t suffice? What about hidden storage for your kitchen bin? Identifying your unique needs will help you decide on a design and storage solution.

At AOK Kitchens, our expert kitchen designers consider every aspect of your room to create a plan for the perfect kitchen renovation for your house. This includes careful consideration of your needs and intentional thinking with cupboard placement for maximised storage and efficiency; all while ensuring the style and luxury element of your new kitchen renovation is consistent throughout.

When renovating a small kitchen, choosing a colour palette that expands the space and give the illusion of a larger room is essential.

Bright neutrals can create a fresh, airy feel in a small kitchen. Depending on your personal style you can continue this theme on both the walls and cabinetry, or you can opt for a bold shade on your cupboards to create a striking presence in the room.

The right combination of colours on your walls, cabinets, and even ceilings can help to create an optical illusion that makes it feel as though your kitchen is larger and has higher ceilings than it actually does.

Our traditional and modern kitchens all come in a range of colours so you can be sure that your renovation perfectly fits your colour scheme.

Smart Design

Whether you want a contemporary kitchen, or prefer a more traditional style, an intelligent design will ensure that the efficiency of your small kitchen is maximised.

Flexible storage options that are multi-functional are growing in popularity; consider a breakfast cupboard for appliances, which will help reduce the number of items you have on your worktops.

When it comes to the design of your cabinetry, be sure to ask your kitchen designer about smart solutions for corner pieces. Creative cupboard and drawers placed in the corner sections of smaller kitchens are a great way to increase the amount of storage in your home; resulting in less clutter.
