How to decorate your small kitchen beautifully?
Beautiful kitchens can always making working in it easier and worth the pain. But in cities where space is an issue, getting a big kitchen to work is very hard to find. It is impossible to spare a big space for the kitchen in the 750sq ft to 1500sq ft flats.
Most of the homemakers usually say “the kitchen is very small, it would be nice if it was a little bigger” or the complain by saying “if one is working in a small kitchen, there is no space for the other to enter it”.
However, there are always ways and tips that would help you turn the small nest to a work friendly kitchen.
The ideal size of a kitchen is 5ft by 5ft and they are usually of one galley design or of a L shape. The design you chose will depend on the space you have in the kitchen. If the kitchen has rectangular and liner space then one gallery is suitable for you. In this care, put the kitchen sink in a corner and keep a place for chopping by its side.
Placing the stove in the other side will be beneficial but make sure not to place it with the kitchen door.
Because you have a limited space, create cabinets under the stove, sink and your chopping space and keep all your required utensils there.
On the other hand, keep space for chopping in the beginning, sink in the middle and stove at the end if you have a L shape kitchen and place the cabinets below.
Use colors like light yellow, white or off-white to make your kitchen look bigger. You can even use bigger tiles and hang spot lights under the cabinets placed on the upper side of the kitchen.
A lot of use of water and chopping of meats and fishes take place in the kitchen, so make sure to have a proper system for the entrance of light and air in it. You can have kitchen hoods and exhaust fans too.
Never place the stove in front of the window rather keep the chopping space there. And if you can have a veranda near the kitchen then you can keep the less needed things there. This would make working in the kitchen much easier.
