Remodeling a kitchen can be a very stressful task regardless of the size and scope of the project. However it can be particularly challenging when you are working with and trying to get the most out of a small space. As our population grows and more people are looking to move into cities and therefore forced to downsize, this becomes a very common issue in the Berlin, Connecticut area.

We have compiled a list of tips and tricks below that our specialists recommend to make the most out of your kitchen.

Maximize Your Storage: In order to tidy up an area everything must be in its place. This task becomes nearly impossible when not everything has a place. When you have a disorder what is already a small space can feel much smaller so it is particularly important in a small kitchen that there is ample storage. When designing your kitchen make sure to utilize all of the space you have by using blind corner shelves, filler pullouts and toe kick drawers. This will eliminate dead space and make your kitchen feel more spacious.

Think Outside the Box: Upper and lower cabinets are not the only storage spaces at your disposal. Think outside the box. If you have high ceilings consider putting in additional cabinet space above the ones you have. Another idea would be adding a pot and pan wrack to save even more space in your cabinets.

Multi-Task: Another way to maximize your space is to find multiple purposes for each area. For example the place where you prepare the food can be cleaned up and used a place where you eat or do work. Another space saver is to get stools or chairs that can fold or stack when they are not being used.

Keep it Light: Using bright colors and shiny finishes always gives the appearance of more space so don’t be afraid to use them. Also having mirrored cabinets can make a big difference. Make sure your kitchen is well lit and if possible has a lot of natural light. This will make it feel more open and less cramped.

Work With a Professional: The best way to make sure that you are using all of the space at your disposal is to work with a professional.
