Kitchen Design Ideas For Small Kitchens

As the lack of space problems represents one of the biggest home problems that 60% of the people are dealing with, it is no doubt that, in order to live a comfortable life, people have to find design ideas even for small spaces, such as kitchens and bathrooms.As concerning the kitchen, here are some kitchen design ideas for small kitchens.

The first one is related to the minimalist style. If the kitchen is already small sized, then decorating it with fade colors and small scale gadgets is the right thing to do. As well, it is known the fact that the kitchen furniture that suits the minimalist style is small sized, or at least it does not occupy too much space in the kitchen.

If the minimalist style does not suit the rest of the room, then decorating the kitchen using pot racks with only the necessary things like for cooking should be the wisest thing to do. After all, people can choose to eat together in other room than the kitchen, especially if there is a large family. Therefore, eliminating the table and the chairs from the kitchen can save its owners from a lot of thinking and problems, as an important part of the kitchen will not be occupied no more.

As well, with some little investments, people can choose to compartment the room in a solid mono block for each wall. Therefore, if they can find a solution to insert the cooking area and cooking machines on one wall, wall that would support some closets and maybe the cooking table as well – it can be a sliding cooking table-, then the rest of the room will be completely for free. This way, there will be enough room even for a table and some chairs and even for walking through the kitchen.

The last kitchen idea is taken from the American movies: instead of using a round or a rectangular table, try to use one long table stick to the wall. This means that the table will be more like a counter, but it will be just fine, as it won’t take too much space and the kitchen, even if it might be small will be unique. In order to save even more space, people are advised to add suspended closets over the table/counter, fact that will allow them to save even more space. Using this idea, the whole kitchen will look more spacious, and therefore, its owners won’t live with the idea that they have to deal with a small kitchen as, as you can see, even the smallest things can turn in into big ones.

    You have started a very interesting discussion on kitchen design. I’m a cabinetmaker who really does not want to make kitchens for a living, because the most of what is done in the US is just boxes with a “choice of doors and drawer fronts,” the most of which are made in a factory somewhere. Boring. I want to do something else if I can, but what?

    European design just absolutely blows my mind, and I find myself reading quite a bit on it, even though these are often modular kitchens that one would simply send away for and have installed by a local craftsman. But what fascinates me is the utter innovation of those designs, so I find myself returning to them quite a bit.

    I am also looking to design a kitchen for my wife in a too small space in a tract home, which necessarily lets out those wonderful European designs that excite me so. And whenever I find myself going out on a limb with some idea or another for our kitchen, my wife always grounds me by saying, “If you stick with the classics, you won’t grow tired of them.”

    So, what do you do that is different and yet timeless and practical and stimulating to make if you’re a cabinetmaker? Damned if I know, but if I ever figure it out, I mean to make it for us and splash that baby all over the Internet!

    What you’ve written, though, has given me quite a bit to think about, and I thank you for sharing your concepts.
