Big Ideas for Small Kitchens

Small kitchens can be hard to decorate without making the room feel cluttered. However, smaller kitchens cost less to makeover and small projects can make a dramatic impact.

Backsplashes

To make a dramatic statement without painting the walls or cupboards, try adding a backsplash. There are a variety of styles, patterns and colors to fit any kitchen. They are also easy to wipe clean if food particles get on them while washing dishes or cooking.

Color

Go bold in the kitchen with a bright color. This can be achieved by painting an accent wall or colorful kitchen decorations such as rugs, decorative dishware, towels, and wall hangings.

Bold Patterns

If the kitchen has a window above the sink, find a window covering with a colorful, bold print. This focal point could be used to draw color inspiration for other decorations in the kitchen. Or, find a patterned wallpaper to put in the kitchen. This is a great way to bring color into a plain, white kitchen.

Open Shelving

A kitchen trend that has caught on recently is open shelves and cabinets for displaying interesting dishes or fun containers. This idea is better suited to those who like to keep their storage areas really tidy. Textured or colorful baskets or bins can be used for organization while bringing in a decorative element as well. Colorful dishes could be put on display as too.

Smaller kitchens are a good place to go bold, whether it be with color or patterns. Pieces that are both decorative and functional work well, so they aren’t just taking up much needed space.
