6 simple steps to make your small kitchen work

Nothing visually cramps up a space like dark colours. And even though there’s something elegant about charcoal-tinted walls and black kitchen islands, one really needs to reconsider the colour palette when it comes to small kitchens.

Make your cooking space more open and light with white (or off-white, or cream, or soft beige, or light grey… ) walls. Take it further with sleek, contemporary details that help to open up the space and spread the light around. 

Remember that light, reflective materials and minimal designs are crucial for small kitchens, which is why we recommend white or frosted glass cabinet doors, white stone or stainless steel worktops, and backsplash tiling in subdued colours (and with as little pattern as possible). 

And don’t overlook the lighting, as good lighting can make any kitchen (regardless of colour) look bigger. Consider the following: 

• LED strip lights under cabinets and on shelves to illuminate a small, dark work zone

• Replacing incandescent light bulbs with modern energy-efficient ones

• Pendant lights that can clip onto existing track-lighting systems to add more layers to your kitchen lighting

• Adding a mirror to a kitchen wall or opting for a mirrored backsplash to help spread the light around.
