A convenient way to think of kitchen design style is to start by dividing the many styles available into two main categories: traditional or modern/contemporary. Each of these categories contains many subcategories and offshoots, but by first identifying which of the two appeals most to your personal style, you‘ll go a long way towards narrowing the list of styles you‘ll have to choose from.
First, eliminate the extras. Exchange pendant lights for recessed lighting and swap space-hogging appliances for models that can be tucked in drawers. Secondly, make a place for everything and put everything in its place. To this end, consider a pullout pantry or extend a windowsill for an extra storage perch. So that your tiny kitchen layout works double-duty, install a retractable eat-in peninsula that doubles as counter/dining space. Opt for chairs that also serve as seating in the living room. Every culinary headquarters needs a space for dining. Whether you have an island or a peninsula, utilize this surface in your small kitchen design for cooking prep, dining and as a buffet for entertaining. Bringing in an island on casters provides a mobile dining space when you need, it and it can be rolled away when you don‘t. Another idea for designing an eat-in space in your small kitchen is to install a built-in booth to accommodate the tight space. With a thoughtful design, you can also use the space underneath the seating for extra kitchen storage.
One of the first things you‘ll need to consider for your open kitchen is how many walls you want to keep standing in the space. If any of the walls are load-bearing, your decision may be made for you (you should probably keep those). But if you‘re relatively free and clear to take down any internal walls, you‘ll have an opportunity to keep as few as just one. Single-wall open kitchens are not uncommon, and they create the most open feel of any design—but you‘ll sacrifice a bit of storage to implement a one-walled open kitchen design.
The options for kitchen wall decoration are just about limitless, but a good place to start is with one of the more common candidates for wall decoration: artwork. Kitchens aren‘t always thought of as primary spaces for the display of wall art. However, as in other rooms in the home, artwork displayed on kitchen walls can add tremendous visual interest and personality to the space.
