Our South Pasadena Buyers Agents say sometimes a small kitchen is a reality, and that’s okay with us, but that doesn’t mean it has to “FEEL” small.
Our South Pasadena Buyer’s Agent say it is very possible to create an airier ambience in a small space, while at the same time creating an extra room with a few design revisions, AND still keeping style, personality, and functionality in tune.
Let Go Of It
Minimalism may not be a style that you’ve thought about before but it may be just the ticket for your tiny kitchen. Stripping the kitchen of “extra” visible items creates a clean streamlined appeal which in turn makes space look spacier.
- Our South Pasadena Real Estate Agents suggest that you par down any items that look like it is bullying counter, shelf, or cabinet space. Additionally, try to hide the clutter that doesn’t get routinely used.
- Here’s a less obvious tip: remove the cabinet and drawer hardware. Our South Pasadena Real Estate Agents say there are great cabinet doors that have the built-in streamlined pulls, or the “magical” touch activated options. Taking care of any pull hardware lets the eye smoothly gaze smoothly, (no “eye stop”) past the storage without any stops, and without snagging the hems of long sweaters.
No Dishwasher? Or Small Dishwasher?
Our South Pasadena Buyers Agents say if you have a small kitchen then maybe you only need a small-sized dishwasher? These 18-inch appliances become more in demand: think what you can do with those extra 6 inches of space?!
Okay, So You Do Need That Regular Sized Dishwasher
Lets make dinner plates blend in with the rest of your incredible kitchen; it’s the magic of streamline design. South Pasadena Real Estate Agents say panel ready appliances can be fronted to coordinate with the rest of your kitchen cabinets without that “eye stop” we mentioned in the tip about no more hardware.
Up Your Shelves
Our South Pasadena Real Estate Agents say if this is helpful to your kitchen lifestyle, think about removing some cabinetry and instead install amazing open shelving. Moreover, our South Pasadena Buyers Agents suggest you use this type of shelf for showcasing the kitchen items that you enjoy and make you feel great while looking at them.
This might include everything from hand me down cookbooks, small potted plants, or all of those little jars that were meant to be displayed. The open shelving is, once again, good for an open-air layout and aids in opening up a tiny space.
If this is too committed, our South Pasadena Real Estate Agents recommend that you remove the doors of a few cabinets and try the open design that way. If you’re not feeling it, simply re-hinge the doors.
Light, Any Way Possible
Light, any kind of light for that matter, is nowhere more essential than in the kitchen. And kitchen light is often not always that great. Make it better. After all, there’s nothing that makes a room feel dark and small than darkness.
- Add lighting to the cabinetry: under, over, and even inside.
- If you have a window, unveil it. Remove the valance or blinds and let the natural light inside.
