The kitchen is more than just a cooking space; it is said to be the heart of a home. A small kitchen can be as cozy and warm as a big one. Small kitchens can also be functional, beautiful and practical, despite the design challenge. Even though you may have a smaller space, that doesn’t mean you cannot still create a beautiful kitchen. In order to make use of your kitchen space and make your small kitchen seem brighter and bigger you don’t necessarily need the help of a professional. You just need these few simple but significant small kitchen remodel ideas.

If you plan on remodeling the kitchen, we advise you to give up your old appliances and consider newer models with modern designs. On you can check out some state of the art dishwashers. Some of them have glossy finishes that can match modern kitchen designs while others can be integrated in the furniture as they come with customizable doors. The refrigerator or the microwave oven can also be integrated in the kitchen furniture.

A great way to save space in a small kitchen is to choose multi-purpose microwaves. For example, an over the range microwave will help you save a lot of countertop space. It works both as a microwave as well as a range hood. If you are interested in buying such an appliance, visit, where you will find reviews of the best over the range microwaves of the moment.

If the difference in floor space is a matter of a couple of square feet, consider placing deeper counters near the dishwasher and some cabinets near the oven. This way you will cover the needed area. But try to pay attention to each and every measurement when placing the cabinets— a few inches can make a significant change, especially in not so spacious kitchens. Another space saving tip is to have built-in appliances so that your kitchen will seem more spacious. To hide small appliances such as mixers or toasters you can opt for sliding shelves.

Every kitchen should have a pantry, in order to store pots or cutlery. To save space, try placing these kitchen items in a closet outside the kitchen area. Also, try to opt for a large sink. Ar first, you might think a large sink covers a large area of the kitchen but in terms of functionality, you can use it as a utility sink. With the help of a bigger sink it will be much easier for you to clean those large pots and pans. You can save more space by placing a wire basket on the inside of the cabinet to hold trash bags or cleaning items.

When considering various small kitchen remodel ideas, a great tip is to make your kitchen seem bigger by changing the color of walls, counters and stools. Using pastels, light colors or simply white you can increase the visual size of the kitchen because light shade colors reflect light drawing the eyes upward and thus making the kitchen appear taller.

Sure, with all these small kitchen remodel ideas we know now how to make a small kitchen seem bigger and brighter. But consider this: you can create a cozy, warm space with the existing architecture. Ultimately, small decorations or even DIY projects can make a big difference.
