Interior designers create an illusion of space with lighting under the cabinets and under the counter. The proper lighting can make your kitchen larger and appealing. Lighter color cabinet with glass doors creates the appearance that there is more space. Flooring tiles can be placed diagonally. In a galley, designed kitchen hardware floors can be used and still give the room a large appearance. If doing a modern small kitchen design and an island is desired, it is best to double it up as a work space as well. There are island designs that come already available and can suit your needs and preferences. The islands provide solutions to and space problems in your small kitchen.
Personalize your kitchen backsplash by finding something decorative for the space behind the stove then use a solid on the rest of the backsplash. Just make sure that the solid is one of the colors from your stove area. Try incorporating glass tile into a ceramic tile backsplash. Install the glass behind the stove and then as inserts throughout the ceramic field tile. This can be done as a border too. Another idea is to use a solid glass tile on the backsplash but run a border of color or blended colors through the middle or along the counter top.
The cart is very resourceful, and can be stored easily by sliding right in next to your sink. A small kitchen hutch is also a good idea since it has pullout parts like storage drawers and cutting boards. A small hutch also has glass doors on its upper portion where a few plates and fine china may be stored. An open plate rack can be built in or placed against the wall as an addition. Kitchen tables can be placed in a small kitchen. If there is an island in the kitchen, you are already saving space. However, if you want a place in the kitchen to be able to sit down for meals you can nestle a table against the island. This will leave more floor space around the work space and the table altogether. Additionally, you can conform your island into a peninsula by adding it to the end of your sink counter space.
