6 tips to decorate a small kitchen.

The kitchen is the heart of every home – no matter the size. Here are some simple kitchen decor ideas and designs, to turn your kitchen into a warm and welcoming space for the entire family.

1. Choose space-savers

Storage in small kitchens can prove quite challenging, and call for smart space-saving solutions. In such cases, we recommend using custom-made pantry ladders, pull out drawers and tower units. These not only add functionality to your space but in turn, free up more space in the kitchen.

2. Use lighter tones

The right lighting can make all the difference in making space feel larger than it is.

When dealing with a smaller kitchen, avoid cherry dark cabinets and darker shades.

Lighter shades make the room appear brighter and bigger. A slightly more flamboyant option would be installing LED strips under shelves and cabinets.

3. Unclutter your space

Minimizing clutter goes a long way in transforming a kitchen space. The saved space, in turn, helps create possibilities for hanging works of art – like a painting or textured pots and vases.

4. Try accessories from nature

Adding a touch of green through indoor plants help bring a natural warmth to the kitchen. Pots can take up an unnecessary amount of space though, so we recommend using a pot rack to keep them up and out-of-the-way. This gives you extra storage while also incorporating the pots into the kitchen.

5. Make a bold splash

A simple, yet effective way to decorate the kitchen is to work on the Dado area. What is the Dado area?  The space between the base and wall cabinets. A splash of colour in this space can do wonders for your kitchen’s aesthetic appeal.

6. Add some art

Hanging art on your walls is a simple way to personalize your space. A contemporary painting or a mix of vintage works, or even personal gallery-style photos can change the mood and be an effective decoration. While it’s up to you to choose between a single large piece or a collection of smaller ones, we’d recommend one large painting. As this creates one large focal point, which works wonders in a small kitchen.
