Many homeowners who opt for a one-walled open kitchen design compensate for the lack of storage in clever ways. A large kitchen island is a familiar sight in a one-walled open kitchen, and islands can be a great storage option, as well as offering several other important uses, from seating and dining to food preparation. Some open kitchen designs even feature islands with sinks, to maintain the classic work triangle between the sink, refrigerator and stove. When it comes to storage, islands in a one-walled open kitchen may feature sets of pull-out drawers, cabinets, and even appliances or convenient features like a lazy Susan or pull-out garbage can. If a one-walled open kitchen design isn‘t in the cards for you and an L-shaped or other design is planned, you can still easily feature a kitchen island if the space allows.
Don‘t believe what you‘ve been told! Small kitchens do indeed have the potential to charm as much as their larger counterparts. Because visual clutter can minimize an already small space, approach your small kitchen redesign with the charge of keeping things simple. Attain simplicity by keeping countertops clutter-free. Take advantage of unused space, like a bare wall, the alcove above the cabinetry or an empty window sill to add decor sparingly. Uniformity also produces simplicity, as evidenced in a monochromatic color palette and grouping similar items. For example, create visual continuity by pairing like items such as a collection of decorative plates, a set of storage baskets or a grouping of photos in coordinating black frames.
Another great option for decorating kitchen walls is shelving. Especially in a smaller kitchen space, low profile shelves decorated with accents or supplies can be both attractive and efficient. You can even use them to add pops of color to the space by purchasing or painting them in bold hues.
When it comes to the appearance of your kitchen peninsula, you‘ll only be limited by your imagination and your budget. Most homeowners choose to mirror the overall design of the kitchen, particularly since it‘s usually connected directly to another area of the kitchen, with a single countertop marrying the entire design in an L- or U-shaped kitchen with a peninsula. That said, a peninsula can provide an opportunity to add some visual interest to your kitchen design via unique countertop decorations like glass or porcelain storage containers or bowls of elegantly displayed fruits and vegetables.
