Design Ideas for a Small Kitchen

Design Ideas for a Small Kitchen

If you are in need of design ideas for a small kitchen then look no further, our design consultants have a vast amount of ideas up their sleeves.

 

A kitchen is the focal point of a home, it’s where we gather to prepare food, entertain and of course cook our favourite meals.

If you have a small kitchen then these ideas may help make the most of the space;

 

Light and Cheerful

Choosing the right colour in your small kitchen can make all the difference.  The lighter the colour the better as this helps to create an illusion of space.

Using whites, creams, light blues and light yellows can help to keep things light and cheerful in a small area.  Team these colours with natural light and it will make the kitchen feel more spacious than it actually is.

 

Storage

You can now buy kitchen units that have excellent storage ideas such as pull out pantry’s, carousel units, wine racks, and many more.

A pull out pantry is perfect for hiding away all the tinned foods and spices that would normally take up cupboard space.

A corner carousel unit is also a great way to store kitchen foods such as pasta, tins, cereals etc.  It is easily accessed and also a modern must for any kitchen.

If you are a wine drinker why not have a wine rack installed at the end of a cupboard run to store all those bottles – no more wire wine racks taking up space!

 

Mirrors and Glass

Mirrors can double the effect of the size of a kitchen.  You can now get mirrored splash backs – why not give this option a try, the only downside is obviously keeping up on the cleanliness of it to maximise the effect.

Glass fronted cabinets also work well especially on the upper part of the kitchen walls.  It gives the cabinets a lighter look and can also lead your eyes to the depth of the unit.  The only drawback would be, you would have to arrange the contents and glassware neatly so to not spoil the illusion.

 

Whatever your idea’s, whatever size of kitchen you have, Milestone have the experience and knowledge to help you create your dream kitchen a reality.

Kitchen Extension Sheffield

Kitchen Extension Sheffield

If you are in the Sheffield area and are wondering where to start with a kitchen extension, Milestone have a few pointers to help you on your way;

Firstly you need to find a professional. One of the best ways to find an experienced designer, architect and builder is by asking family and friends who’s projects you have admired when visiting.

Check out the boards and signs that architects and builders put up outside a site whilst they are undertaking the works and check them out on social media, google and their website. Get a feel of the work they’ve undertaking, check out their testimonials and compile as much information as possible before you make a decision to commence your project with them.

Most industries have a professional body – search online and check their credentials out.  Also ask to see their current and valid insurance certifications.  You have every right to be sure you are dealing with a true professional whom truly cares about you and your project.

Make sure that when the said professional visits you in your home they are not too sales orientated, they listen, they discuss and most importantly they make you feel at ease in their presence.  This is an extremely good indicator as if they do none of these aspects how do you know you will get what you have paid for?

A good professional will not only listen to your specifications but they will advise you on certain aspects.  It’s a good indicator if they bring some idea’s to the ‘table’ and even give you idea’s that maybe even you haven’t thought of.  A true experienced trades person or professional will be able to advise you on not only the legalities of undertaking a project but also the little extra’s that will give a project the WOW factor.

As mentioned before, check out their social media, most successful professionals will be on all of the social media platforms like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter to name but a few, also search for them on YouTube, most give regular video updates on the site which gives you a clear indication that they actually care about the work they do and shows you what they can do.
