How to Create Small Functional Kitchens – Tips from Kuechen Harmonie
New Places for Appliances
Your kitchen doesn’t have to be the place you put the washing machine and tumble dryer in a home! If you’re compromised for space, consider finding another location for your larger appliances. Many people choose to relocate their freezers, washing machines and tumble dryers. Often putting them in places like under the stairs, back porches, and most commonly in garages. Also, don’t think that moving these appliances will hinder the functionality of your life. You’re just making minor changes that you will definitely become accustomed to.
Space into Storage
As we mentioned in our last post, there is always the opportunity to create additional storage in any area of your kitchen. Small functional kitchens rely on the clever use of space – if you’re afraid of being creative with your storage then you won’t make the most of your current kitchen!
So, identify areas of wasted space. Does your kitchen have any unused corners or window sills? Are there gaps in the shelves? To help you make the most of your storage, think about investing in drawer divider. These can help to keep a range of kitchenware items tidy. And, re-access your open shelving! Compact containers can be used to store cupboard foods while also keeping herbs and condiments fresh.
Finally, make the space light and vibrant. It is often the case that smaller kitchens are limited with light flow. Therefore, as kitchen designers, we need to be very conscious of what materials and colours are used and where we place certain elements. Make sure that the fixtures, fittings and furnishings of your more compact space are lighter in tone, making for a more open and airy kitchen!
