Lighting can play a big role in the way your kitchen space can appear in size. A small kitchen does not need fluorescent lights as they can depress a small kitchen. Any lighting that can be put up under wall cupboards will not make the room appear too bright or too small. Lighting should blend in with your colors and overall décor to give the room a good contrast.
Another of my budget kitchen design ideas is to grow a window box of fresh herbs. You could also go for an arrangement of dried flowers in a corner. If you cannot do that, fill a small wicker basket with fresh fruit and place it on a counter to brighten up your kitchen.
Kitchen tables can be placed in a small kitchen. If there is an island in the kitchen, you are already saving space. However, if you want a place in the kitchen to be able to sit down for meals you can nestle a table against the island. This will leave more floor space around the work space and the table altogether. Additionally, you can conform your island into a peninsula by adding it to the end of your sink counter space.
If you want more space to move around with while working you may add and assign extra space for a work area like chopping, slicing and dicing area especially for times when your kitchen will be very busy. This also proves helpful so you will have a view of where to place electrical outlets, as commonly is the overlooked aspect. You may also wish to provide a room for a separate pantry and an area dedicated for office work. Ensure also the lighting design especially your work areas. Take note of the appliances that you will be using and have the correct measurement of each including your cabinets. To give you ease and accuracy in planning your kitchen, try using a kitchen design software. There are various templates of designs that help you to create your dream kitchen.
The appliances should be next to each other when you are designing the kitchen. This increases their efficiency and prevents you from having to walk across the entire room to get from one appliance to the other. If you do not require a large refrigerator, you can purchase a smaller, deeper one to save more floor space. There are software design tools that can help you come up with design ideas for your small kitchen and appliances. You can also get great ides from home improvement stores.
