How You Can Maximize Your Existing Space

There are plenty of ways for you to make better use of your current kitchen setup. You can make more minor upgrades and enjoy more room to work with as a result. One way to do that is to have new lighting installed. Having a new fixture as the highlight of your kitchen can not only attract attention away from the room’s size itself but with the right lighting, the area could create the illusion of more space.

Another option is to get creative with your storage space, whether that means storing things on top of your cabinets, adding compact shelves, or mounting racks on the walls. And, if you’re looking to upgrade the décor, consider installing new flooring, repainting the walls, or adding wallpaper. These small changes to the overall aesthetic of your kitchen can often make the space feel bigger.

How You Can Create Space With a Wider-Scale Remodel

If enough space is available, you can transform your entire kitchen by installing an island. With an island, you have a centerpiece that can serve as a counter as well as a table. Plus, if it has cabinets and drawers, it can provide you with added storage without taking up more space on the walls. And if it’s centrally located, it will still allow plenty of space for foot traffic around the rest of the kitchen.

Beyond the addition of an island, you can have the cabinetry updated to a sleeker style with no bulky handles, or get innovative with something like an appliance garage, which will allow you more counter space. With enough inspiration, the small kitchen design possibilities are endless.
