It’s common knowledge that the kitchen is the gathering spot in a home. Families spend time eating and talking there, and dinner guests have a tendency to congregate in the kitchen. The kitchen is used as an office, the place where kids do homework and the spot where exciting plans are made. Your kitchen is a meeting place, but if it’s small and cluttered you may not enjoy the time spent there. Maximize storage space and make the kitchen the most desirable room in your home with these remodeling tips for your small kitchen.

Lighten Up

Rooms with a lot of light feel bigger and more open. Include can or recessed lighting and, if practical, a skylight in your remodel plans. Also choose light colors for your walls and cabinets. Lighter colors make a room feel more spacious.

See Clearly

Consider glass doors and open shelves for some or all of your new upper cabinets. Reduce eye clutter by storing clear and light colored glasses, dishes and bowls in these cabinets, saving large platters, pots, pans and kitchen accessories for bottom cabinets with solid doors.

Keep it Simple

Choose simple designs for cabinets, lighting, window coverings and décor. Large appliances and ornate cabinet styles may be appealing in a large space but have no place in a tiny kitchen. Also, select a simple flooring style with flow such as large ceramic tiles or laminate, and consider having it installed at an angle; giving the illusion of a bigger room.

Add Storage

For extra storage incorporate a small island, extended cabinet or additional shelving above your refrigerator into your remodel plans, and have a pot rack installed. For odd shaped corners you may want to include a cabinet with a turntable or lazy Susan to keep utensils within reach. Remember, clutter makes a space feel smaller and will detract from your kitchen’s appeal.
