Finding new and innovative ways to ensure each room in your home is as stylish and aesthetically desirable as possible is always a hot topic for homeowners. As popular styles and fashions change over time, it’s important that homeowners source modern products and fixtures which accentuate a contemporary style of interior design they are trying to create; this is all well and good in rooms and areas which have a lot of open of free space to play with, but smaller more compact rooms require a much more tactful approach.
May cottages, bungalows and standard homes all over the UK come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and it’s not uncommon for them to feature a smaller, compact kitchen. Transforming smaller kitchens such as these into a suave, sleek looking room requires a little forward planning and good use of organisational skills, so with that in mind let’s take a look at a few great small kitchen design ideas that radiate style without compromising on space!
The small fixtures and features in your kitchen can have a huge influence on the style and ‘feel’ of the rest of the room. For example, choosing to add some of the Tapshop321 Traditional Kitchen Taps, your kitchen would evoke a classical and almost ‘vintage’ feeling; whereas a piece from our ‘modern kitchen taps’ range would add a more current and contemporary hint to the kitchen.
There are many styles in kitchen fixtures that you can incorporate into your small kitchen design, but it takes some forward planning to decide what theme you wish to adopt. Swapping out your standard old washbasin for a new countertop (of the same size, we’re trying to save space remember) and new fitted round basin can add a stylish new feature that your neighbour’s standard fitted kitchens certainly won’t have!
Use of Colour
When planning out your small kitchen design, try to incorporate a new colour scheme that fits perfectly with the theme you are looking to create. If you wish to create a light, summery kitchen the light tones of green or standard neutral cream, white or even peach tones may sit well in your home; alternatively a more modern and contemporary kitchen would likely benefit more from a black and white colour scheme, or a more vibrant red. Either way, is sure to carry the colour throughout the kitchen, if you can replace kitchen cupboards and draws with some which adhere to the colour scheme, you will add heaps of style to the room without taking up any extra space.
Add some colourful finishing touches to your rough draft of your small kitchen design by sourcing some kitchen accessories that continue the colour scheme and theme; dishcloths, cutlery, crockery and matts can all be bought to match, and if done correctly will add the perfect finishing touches to your kitchen.
