How to make a small kitchen work

These days, making the best use of a small kitchen space is a trick many of us have to master. Here at Amberth, we’re often challenged with this very need. As this projects shows, a small kitchen can feel just as airy, and be just as functional as a spacious one.

Below are a few tips on how to maximise space in a small kitchen:

  • Place your cabinets so that they meet the ceiling. This makes the space appear taller – you also create more storage space.
  • Stack kitchen appliances above each other. This will save on space and offers a more natural way of cooking.
  • Choose appliances that are scaled in proportion to the space, without compromising on functionality.
  • Shiny surfaces make the space appear larger and lighter, by reflecting the light.
  • White is one of the best colour choices for small kitchens. To avoid a white kitchen appearing plain, add texture and colour with a bold splashback and bright accessories.
  • Storing your kitchen trinkets and spices on the wall will free-up drawer and cupboard space. It also adds interest.
  • Roll-out cabinets and space dividers will utilise the space more efficiently and make sure your kitchen is well organised.
  • Make the best use of corner cabinets. Install rotating and pullout shelving for storing large items such as pots and pans.
