Remodel Your Small Charlotte Kitchen

Remodel Your Small Charlotte Kitchen

Kitchen remodeling is an exciting but confusing task. You have got so much to do on hand in a limited amount of money and time, and particularly when you are an owner of a small kitchen, the task becomes even more complex. With a larger kitchen space, you have certain freedom that you don’t get to enjoy with smaller kitchens. However, with a little bit of planning you can take control of the matter and remodel the space into a functional, elegant kitchen. Here are 6 of the best ways to remodel a small Charlotte kitchen.

So, here is a list of basic things you should be doing to spruce up your kitchen into a modern looking, spacious kitchen.

1.     Downsize on kitchen appliances

You need to accept this fact that a small kitchen cannot be a jack-of-all-trades. So, focus on the main things first. Make sure that you have enough space for the appliances that you use frequently. You may save some space by using scale-down appliances, such as small two-burner stove, microwave oven, single sink, etc. This way, you get the function, but with minimum square-footage.

2.     Try open shelving

Small kitchens may give a claustrophobic feeling with overhead cabinets towering over your heads. Therefore, consider replacing them with open shelves. This way, not only your kitchen will look more spacious, with open shelving you can also show off your favorite shiny pots and pans and give a more traditional look to your kitchen.

3.     Lighten up

Probably the best way to make any room look more spacious instantly is to use fluorescent lighting. Consider adding lights underneath the upper cabinets to make the space look more open up. You may also use mirrored glass on cabinet doors to reflect more light and to make your small kitchen look more spacious.

4.     Color it bright

Play with colors. Lighter colors reflect more light, drawing the eyes upwards and making the room seem larger. So, choose light pinks or pastels for your kitchen walls. Also, make sure that the kitchen appliances and furniture that you choose compliments your kitchen’s color theme.

5.     Have more storage

Kitchen is one of the most active areas of your home therefore make sure to add a lot of space. To avoid wasting storage space above the refrigerator or the oven, consider installing ceiling-high cabinets. These ceiling-high cabinets are usually eight to ten feet high so you have plenty of storage space for your not-so-fancy pots and pans.

6.     Get more organized

Make your kitchen as clutter-free as possible. Use baskets and trays to organize your grocery, frequently used spices and herbs, etc. Using light-brown colored trays and baskets will not only help you make your counter top clutter free, they will also give a warm, natural ambience to the kitchen.
