Slide 1: Green and White Kitchen


One design benefit of having only a small amount of wall space to work with is that you can mix and match colors and patterns without fear that the look will overpower the room. Here, a tiny patch of wall surrounded by white cabinets becomes a canvas for a cheerful checkerboard of blue and green tiles; the green-and-white shade at the window adds a whimsical touch.

11 Inspiring Kitchens That Defy Their Small Size

Many homeowners dream of a kitchen with loads of workspace, lots of storage, and all the latest gadgets. But what if your kitchen is so small that you're unsure it can accommodate your vision? Fear not. Remodeling a small kitchen can be a big success if you keep a few key concepts in mind.

First, minimize clutter and maximize efficiency. Get rid of unitaskers and anything that doesn’t have a real practical purpose. Find the very best storage for every drawer and cabinet, and if storage elements are out in the open, make sure they add to the overall design of the room.

Next, focus your design details. Make the most, visually, of the space that you have. Open up the areas that you can. A counter bar with backless stools will create an open sense of flow, while providing necessary seating, and consider open or glass shelving instead of traditional cabinets. When you use color, make a statement, whether it’s an accent wall of tile, or a bold color choice for cabinets.

The 11 inspiring rooms that follow prove one important point: Just because your kitchen is small, does not mean you have to skimp on style when remodeling. With clever color choices, smart storage ideas, and an eye for detail, you can remodel a kitchen of any size into the room of your dreams.
