Are you looking for some remodeling ideas to make your small kitchen look big and spacious? Not everyone is lucky enough to have a large kitchen, and trying to cope with a small kitchen can be a problem for some people. By using a few tricks you can give your room a look of spaciousness.
Just because you don’t have room in your kitchen for a six-burner stove, double-bowl sink or Sub-Zero fridge, it doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice function or style. Here are 10 ways to max out space in your kitchen, from chic small-scale appliances to innovative storage options and details that make all the difference.
1. Small but mighty appliances. Revamped vintage appliances, like the stove shown below (a 21-inch vintage O’Keefe and Merritt), and vintage-look ones, like the fridge (from Elmira Stove Works), can be found in smaller sizes that don’t sacrifice style. High-end makers like Bertazzoni and Viking also make small-space models, so even serious cooks can find something that fits the space and works hard.
2. Single-bowl sink. Simply going with a single rather than double bowl for the sink can save you a foot or more of counter space. Small-scale single-bowl sinks come in all styles — a farmhouse style like the one shown here still feels capacious.
3. Undermount sink. If you really want to save every possible inch, go with a small, single-bowl, undermount sink. You’ll eke out a smidgen more workspace on the counter beside the sink, because the edges of the sink will be concealed.
