Just because you have a small kitchen doesn’t mean that you can’t be creative and stylish with it. There are a few things you can do to make it efficient and aesthetically pleasing at the same time.
Stick to the essentials
Now you might ask, “Doesn’t stick to just the essentials defeat the whole point of decorating your kitchen?” Well, you can still make do with the essentials and make your kitchen stylish at the same time. For example, you can get some stylish containers for your spices and cooking ingredients. Throw in a vase of flowers and a transparent bowl of fresh fruit, and you have a sleek-looking kitchen without all that clutter on your countertop.
Turn to your walls
You don’t want clutter on your countertop and your kitchen is small; so, where do you look for more space to unleash the creativity in you? Your walls of course. Install a couple of floating shelves on an open wall. They are easy to install and come in various styles.
Another way you can make use of your walls to add some personality to your kitchen is by setting up a gallery wall collection. Framed album covers, vintage dishes, baskets, or what have you — they can constitute your gallery wall collection, making your once boring wall much more interesting.
Brighten up your kitchen
The darker your kitchen, the smaller it feels. So while you’re at it, paint your walls with a light shade. A common go-to color would be white, which provides your kitchen some visual simplicity, making it appear larger.
You don’t have to stick to the white of course. Throw in some light or bright colors; your choice of color may depend on your personality or the kind of visual impact that you wish to make. If you’re aiming for a vintage appeal, for example, then your choices may include yellow and mint green.
And if you just can’t let go of your rich and dark kitchen cabinets and doors, then there’s a solution for that: good lighting. Under-cabinet lighting can accent your cabinets and brighten the work area at the same time. LED strip lights are easy to install: peel, stick, and plugin. You can also layer the lighting in your kitchen by having pendant lights that you can clip onto existing track-lighting systems. And those pendant lights can be used as accessories, too, so choose unique ones or those that contribute to the overall look you would like to have for your kitchen.
Play with seemingly trivial kitchen items
It would be safe to assume that you have stools in your small kitchen; paint them a bright or bold color. Colorful linens can also be used as kitchen accessories. Mix colors and patterns to add to your kitchen’s visual appeal.
Look for unused spaces
Look for unused spaces in your kitchen; it could be the space next to your fridge (where you can place a corkboard) or the top of your cabinet (where you can place a piece of art).
