Optimizing Small Kitchen Spaces

Published on September 29, 2023

In the world of home renovations, the kitchen often holds a special place in homeowners’ hearts. This central space, where meals are prepared and memories are made, presents unique challenges when space is limited. Yet, every kitchen, irrespective of its size, can be turned into a dream haven. URB Remodeling and Renovation Company has demonstrated this time and again with our wide-ranging projects.

From the scenic stretches of Evanston, Kenilworth, and Wilmette to the vibrant streets of Chicago’s Gold Coast and Lincoln Park, we’ve redefined what’s possible in kitchen spaces.

Open Up with Shelving

Ditch those bulky upper cabinets for open shelving. By doing so, you instantly breathe air into the space, providing quick access to essentials and an avenue to showcase your cherished crockery or decorative items.

Reflect with Mirrored Backsplashes

Size can often be a matter of perception. A mirrored backsplash not only offers a sophisticated touch but also multiplies the perceived depth of the space, giving your kitchen an expansive aura.

Embrace Multi-Functionality

Every item in a small kitchen should earn its keep. Opt for furniture that doubles up in function — tables that can be folded away or benches that open up to reveal storage space. It’s all about reducing clutter and making the most of what you have.

Illuminate Your Space

Shadows can be a small kitchen’s worst enemy. Illuminate every nook and cranny. Through strategic layering of ambient, task, and accent lighting, you can create an illusion of a larger, more inviting space.

Seamless Tones

Colors play a pivotal role in how we perceive space. A monochromatic or tone-on-tone palette can weave a seamless visual narrative, making your kitchen appear roomier. Soft whites, grays, or pastels can work wonders.

Think Vertical with Storage

When floor space is scarce, it’s time to think upwards. From tall cabinets to hanging storage solutions, use the height of your kitchen to your advantage. Innovative additions like toe-kick drawers can also add much-needed storage without encroaching on space.

Go Streamlined

Less is often more. Opting for flat-panel cabinet doors and handle-less designs can create an uninterrupted flow in the kitchen, enhancing its spaciousness.

Integrated Approach to Appliances

In a small kitchen, every inch counts. Built-in appliances, be it under-counter refrigerators or microwave drawers, provide both form and function, ensuring a cohesive look while saving on space.

Embarking on a renovation journey can be daunting, but with the right partners, magic can be crafted in the tiniest of spaces. Whether you’re located in the charming neighborhoods of Winnetka, Glencoe, or the iconic River North of Chicago, URB Remodeling and Renovation Company is here to unlock the potential of your kitchen.
