You don’t have to worry about small kitchen areas, as there are various ways to maximize your kitchen space through thoughtful planning and remodeling. Let go of your kitchen space woes with these remodeling tips from kitchen and exterior remodeling expert DreamMaker Bath and Kitchen of Greater Grand Rapids.
The Ceiling is the Limit
Don’t hesitate to reach the ceiling when installing wall cabinets. Choose a wall that can best accommodate a floor-to-ceiling cabinet, as this greatly increases storage space for all your cooking implements. Additionally, you may consult your remodeling contractor regarding the safest and most space-efficient way to access the topmost shelves. Taller cabinets free up counter space and effectively utilize your kitchen’s vertical space that will be wasted otherwise.
Consider the Island
Kitchen islands offer an effective storage solution, especially when fitted with back-to-back shallow cabinets or cabinets that open on both sides. This design hack prevents items from getting lost in the back of the cabinets. You can also choose cart-style islands for your kitchen remodeling. Compared with their cabinet-based counterparts, cart islands are less bulky and can open up the floor space by allowing more light to pass through the area.
While lighter colors can make any space look larger than it really is, you may consider experimenting with darker colors when it comes to your kitchen. Contrasting light and dark color combinations, such as dark gray, black and white, can work to your advantage. Just mind the execution of the color combinations to avoid ending up with a kitchen that looks stifling.
Use floating shelves to open up the wall space. These trendy storage solutions go best with rails which you can use to hang various cooking tools such as hand towels, ladles and even cups or mugs.
