Small kitchens are much more common in modern living areas, then a large kitchen. Most of the apartments and townhouses have a small kitchen. For those who enjoy cooking, a small kitchen can really be a problem. The kitchen usually has piles of appliances, dishes and other tools that are often used by skilled chefs. These appliances typically take up a lot of space, so that the kitchen should be really well designed.

1. Make a hanging bar for pots

To save some space and make your pots always available when you need them, and you will need them every single day, make a hanging bar for your pots. You can make a hanging bar from the ceiling or simply use an empty space on the wall.

2. Pull out slim pantry cabinet

Pull out pantry cabinet can be custom made for your kitchen. This is a very practical way to store kitchen necessities close to you. Best place for a cabinet is near the oven. That way you can grab what you need while you cook. A bad side is you have to crouch every time you need something from the bottom shelf. In that case, you can make a high pantry cabinet and use the bottom shelf for less used jars.

Many brands and companies now produce devices that are smaller than standard. Now you can save space by reducing the largest pieces in the kitchen (stove, fridge).

If you do not spend too much time in the kitchen you can consider using double burners. If you think better, when will you need all four burners at once? Slim dishwasher and slim fridges are easy to find, and they can satisfy all your needs.

6. Smartly choose colors for your kitchen

Colors also play a big role when it comes to the appearance of the small kitchen. White and bright colors will visually make the kitchen look spacious and attractive.

If you still choose to have a bolder style, use vibrant colors, even if only for a closet or ceramic tiles. Living in different colors can be a smart choice because color variation makes each piece looks isolated, but it is a good idea only for fans of various colors.

As far as material, select the one you like the most whether it was wood or metal. Worktop can even be made of marble, which looks really classy and chic. Always keep your desktop neat to have enough usable space.
