Renovating a small kitchen not only adds to a house’s value, but it will also infuse the home with warmth and charm. One of the biggest challenges in a small kitchen renovation is creating storage where none existed before. Be inspired by other homeowners’ remodeling solutions when searching for kitchen remodel ideas.
Think outside the box when hunting for elusive storage spaces:
- Look up and find some empty space above the stove, that space perfect for those pots, pans and china you only use once or twice a year.
- Create alcoves for spice racks and towel bars.
- Utilize both sides of the kitchen island; concealing a television in the side facing the living room will reduce clutter in that room, too.
Kitchen remodel ideas don’t stop with storage. Upgrading the plumbing fixtures, door hardware, cabinet handles and hinges and kitchen accessories will create big changes without spending a lot of money. Make sure to choose kitchen fixtures that fit the existing plumbing set-up to significantly reduce the budget.
Another aspect of a kitchen remodel is lighting. Beautifully lit kitchens can be achieved by breaking down a wall to open up the space to other rooms, adding a few windows to an existing outside wall or, if those are not viable options, by adding additional lighting fixtures. Make sure to include task lighting to the final design.
