If you’re flipping a house with a small kitchen there are some clever ways to maximize the use and appearance of your space. Consider these tricks to make the most of what you’ve got.
When you’ve got a kitchen with a small footprint you need to make every effort to maintain clear lines of sight and to avoid blocking views. The clear, see-through nature of Lucite barstools can keep your kitchen looking light and airy, and they won’t hide the lower portion of your island or peninsula if you plan to make a design statement with tile, reclaimed wood, or other material.
Clever With Color
Splashes of color in your kitchen can keep the gaze of buyers moving around the room and make the space appear larger than it really is. For instance, a set of cabinets above the oven painted in a color that coordinates with light pendants and accessories throughout the room.
Some kitchens have an area that’s designed for things like sitting and paying bills, storing cookbooks, and posting phone messages. But in smaller kitchens this kind of space isn’t always an option. Chalkboard-covered refrigerator doors lets potential buyers leave notes for family members, keep track of appointments, write down phone messages, and give the kids a place to doodle—all without taking up extra floor space.
Some kitchen cabinets don’t reach the ceiling and allow room to display decorative plates or artificial plants. While this cabinet design leaves open visual space, which can give a kitchen the appearance of more volume, it reduces the amount of cabinet shelving. Small kitchens need as much storage as possible, so cabinets that reach the ceiling can be an ideal use of space and the best way to compete with the storage that potential buyers might find in kitchens with larger footprints. Tall cabinets also provide the benefit of making your ceilings appear higher by carrying the eye upward.
