Maximizing Space in a Small Kitchen

Depending on the condo building and floor plan, you can often find your Midtown Atlanta condo kitchen lacking in space. It might be the counter space or the cabinet space. But there are ways to make it your own! 

A small kitchen doesn’t have to mean dark or cramped, you can maximize a small kitchen by using these clever tips. From tricking the eye to great ways to get extra storage, these easy design ideas will help you love your small kitchen.

Tone on Tone Colors Scheme – Trick the eye by using subtle variations of the same color palate.

Strategic Shelving – Add a shelf above the backsplash to add room for spices or décor; place on a wall to display glasses or dishware and gain extra storage in the process.

Design with an Island – If possible, open a closed off kitchen to the family or breakfast room, use an island as double duty by adding a breakfast bar on one side and sink, dishwasher and storage on the other.

Tile a Whole Wall – Consider making a blank wall a focal point by tiling the space floor to ceiling. Glossy tile brings interest and light to the kitchen.

Big Style Elements – There is no need to shy away from large fixtures simply because the space is smaller. Large retro pendant lights are a great way to not only light the space but add interest and a modern vibe to the kitchen.

Seek Extra Storage – There is plenty of hidden storage opportunities in most kitchens. Pull out drawers are a great way to access the recessed areas of pantries and cabinets.

Small kitchens can be just as inviting as their spacious counterparts. With a little creativity and stagecraft, your kitchen can be the heart of the home, at any size. 

I hope these tips for Maximizing Space in a Small Kitchen were helpful to you! Who can't use some great tips, right?

My first home had a tiny counter underneath cabinets which made it difficult to use. I wound up using the small kitchen table as a place to cut veggies/etc. Some of these suggestions above would have been helpful also!
