Bigger doesn't always mean better, especially when we’re talking kitchens. Space and good design aren’t exclusive to a large home — all you need are some good small kitchen decorating ideas that keep your small space organized, functional, and beautiful.

These kitchens may be small on space, but they're big on style and efficiency. So let's take a look at some great ideas for your small kitchen!

1. Create a mixture: rustic and modern

For both modern and rustic lovers alike, we have one piece of advice for you: go bold and mix both styles for a beautiful and unique space! With certain characteristic materials such as brick, granite, and wood, you can easily incorporate rustic elements to an already modern space.

2. Apply minimalism: conceal storage

A properly designed small kitchen has minimal clutter and maximum productivity. For your small kitchen, discreet storage space works best. With no straggling pots, pans, or cutlery floating on or above the counter, this space is left looking magnificently open and free.

3. Make the most of every corner

With limited space, making the most out of every corner becomes a necessity. The open shelving provides a perfect harmony of storage and decor, and we think this matching central dining table and chair set is the perfect addition to comfortably sandwich in between the other kitchen elements.

4. Maximise vertical space

Walls aren't just for hanging beautiful pieces of art – they become functional spaces as well. Maximising your vertical space means taking full advantage of the height of your walls, because chances are, that's the biggest surface area you have in your tiny kitchen. Take special note from this space – there certainly isn't a lack of cabinetry. Take a look at our professionals if you want to employ similar ideas.

5. Avoid monotonous monochrome

The colour of walls, appliances, counters, chairs, and even dishtowels can change the atmosphere and perceived size of the kitchen. Pastels or light colours, with good doses of white, reflect light and draw the eye up, making ceilings look higher.

6. Use contrasting units

This pint-sized kitchen show us how contrasting colours help a small kitchen come to life. Keeping everything in the same colour family is boring, and these bold splashes of red offer great variation. Light colors, or all white helps too. These cabinets and appliances stand out from the walls, and surprisingly enough, things feel more spacious than they actually are.

7. Customise everything!

No two kitchens are created equal. We know this, and we're sure you do too! So why have what everyone else has? Why not customise each element to fit your personal needs? We suggest making a list of what you want in each corner of the room and for which purpose it will be used. Then, before you know it, you'll have a custom-made space that gives you uniterrupted workflow!
