Measure your kitchen. Before you do anything else, measure the dimensions of your kitchen so you know exactly how much space you have to work with. This is incredibly useful when it comes to picking out furniture and appliances as you can start to imagine where the different things will fit. A lot of people estimate with their designs and it comes back to bite them at a later stage. Don’t be one of these people.
Unlike larger kitchen spaces (which provide you with more design freedom) small kitchens need to be optimized for function before you take aesthetics into consideration. More than anything else, it’s important that you are able to accomplish all of your cooking tasks as comfortably as possible when you're working in a limited space.
Finishing Touches: once the heavy appliances and furniture pieces are installed, take a step back and think of what else space needs. Here are some ideas for finishing touches:
Think logically. What things from your existing kitchen are you planning to keep? What are you going to throw away? What will need replacing? What can be refurbished and re-used? All of these questions can give you a headache so make lists of what you’re throwing away and what you need to buy. That way you’re always in control and won't end up with two of anything. When deciding what new furniture and appliances to invest in start by listing what you need and then move on to what you want. Fitting in the necessities should always be your priority.
If you are in an apartment or small house, or just have a limited amount of space in your kitchen, it is a good idea to visit a kitchen showroom to get some ideas about what might work for you. There are innovations such as rollaway work benches, multi hinged doors and so on that will help you maximise the space that you have available in your small kitchen.
