It can be a challenge to reign in your wild design ideas if you are limited on space in your kitchen. However, the very best rooms are made by adapting to their conditions, and there are still plenty of successful kitchen designs out there that shine without the benefit of wide-open spaces. If you fall into this category and are looking for some inspiration to make your small kitchen a hit, then you have come to the right place!

Here at Kitchen Warehouse, we like to think we know a thing or two about kitchens. After all, we have been one of the top suppliers in the country for 15 years and have some show-stopping ideas for your home, no matter what shape or size it may be.

Using walls to your advantage

In a smaller kitchen, there is naturally going to be a lack of space on your worktops. With this in mind, you might want to consider using your main wall to store some kitchen essentials, such as knives that will inevitably be needed when preparing food. This addition can make your kitchen look busy without proving overwhelming to look at, all whilst making it a practical space to work.

Double up!

If your kitchen is on the small side, try to use its features for two or more purposes – combining day-to-day practicality and style. For example, you could use a kitchen island for both food preparation and as a place to socialise. Or use a small vase for storing cutlery.

Some of the very best small kitchen ideas incorporate this off the cuff thinking, resulting in a design that is truly unique to the home, functional and stylish.

No handles, no problem

Whilst the kitchen is limited on space in this instance, it doesn’t mean that it has to compromise on a trendy minimalist look! Handleless kitchen doors are a great way of incorporating this style into your kitchen, bringing it bang up to date.

If your kitchen is small, worksurfaces can easily look cluttered with a range of equipment and appliances. But by going for a handleless design, you can counterbalance this and make your kitchen look sleek and streamlined. A handleless kitchen helps simplify your look in a subtle way that can make all the difference.

Use complementing colours and styles

This is highly recommended for any kitchen but is very important for smaller rooms in which space is at a premium. You can often make your room look more appealing to both yourself and visitors by adding some warm coloured kitchen units – that can be found online at Kitchen Warehouse – that provide the perfect contrast for a patterned splashback, tiled walls or carpet.
