If the size of your kitchen has been preventing your Arlington Heights home improvement project from moving forward, don’t let it. Just because you have a small kitchen, doesn’t mean it can’t be as functional or beautiful as a larger kitchen. If you plan carefully before your remodel, you can create a stylish and efficient kitchen in your home.

Kitchen space can be created in several different ways. Double-stacked cupboards, or cupboard mounted directly above each other, will use more vertical space rather than horizontal space. Most people don’t need space up that high, so this will create more space in your small kitchen. Installing drawers below the cabinets will also create more space in your kitchen. Rather than putting all your utensils in the drawers, you can use hangers on the wall. This will create much more storage space in your kitchen.

After implementing some of the mentioned changes, you can also try giving the illusion of space in your small kitchen. Mirrored backsplashes will create the feel of more space. If you don’t like the idea of a mirrored backsplash, white or light paint can also make a room appear larger than it really is. Make sure to keep your kitchen furniture simple. The less space the furniture takes up, the larger your small kitchen will appear! Buying smaller appliances will also create more space in a small kitchen. Smaller dishwashers and stacked appliances should do the trick.

Just because you have a small kitchen, doesn’t mean it can’t be a functional and beautiful space in your home.
