Big Remodeling Ideas for Small Kitchens

Rightly deemed the “hub of the home”, your kitchen is more than a space confined to cooking.

Now, with the evolution of technology and architecture, it has morphed into one of the most frequently visited parts of home — where families not just cook, but eat, gather, do homework and taxes, pour drinks and catch up for true bonding time.

That’s a lot of activities for a place primarily designated for cooking! So, of course, it only makes sense that the bigger your kitchen, the better.

Unfortunately, every home has its own set of drawbacks. And if yours is space, you may consider keeping your kitchen plain and simple.

Thankfully, innovations in remodeling have allowed homeowners to completely redesign a small kitchen into a vibrant, aesthetically appealing space that’s both functional and pleasing to the eye!

Let’s dive into some of these big ideas!

High-Gloss Accents

If you live in a condo or co-op apartment, you probably don’t have enough space to eat in the kitchen — consequently making it a small and forgettable part of your home.

Luckily, thanks to a gorgeous variety of center islands, your dining area can easily become an extension of your kitchen.

Maybe your apartment makes up for the space by boasting stunning views of the city. Complement the interior with high-gloss finishes in true metropolitan fashion, including shiny accents for contemporary cabinets, countertops and other amenities.

Modern White and Chic Black

Who says small can’t be sophisticated?

There’s nothing trendier than black-and-white combinations. And if you’re a stickler for checkered flooring, you’re going to love pairing your white kitchen with crisp black accents!

Not only does this fantastically modern combination add a stylish flair to your formerly humble cooking space, it also does an excellent job of complementing ultra-chic light fixtures!

Small but Spacious

One of the biggest challenges to a small kitchen is mobility and constriction due to awkward architecture or cramped space.

Once again, creative innovation comes to the rescue to resolve this very common kitchen conundrum.

White kitchens are an excellent way to create the illusion of more space. With an airy color palette, you can match your sweet and simple design with lovely limestone flooring for example and marble countertops for a bright and fresh aesthetic that’s always cheerful and inviting!

These are just a few of the many ideas you can try to “live large” in your small, modern kitchen!
