If your unfortunate that you are stuck to cater with a small kitchen, here are some fantastic ways to make it feel and look and bigger. The lighter the room is, provides a deception of appealing to be larger. So, consider your flooring, wall paint, splashbacks, bench tops and cabinets in lighter colours, as this will give the impression of openness and a larger feel to your small space.
With the light-coloured walls, they help to maximise reflection of natural light giving it an openness feel. Try to keep the floor and walls in the same tone of each other to make the area feel relaxed, balanced and harmonious.
Forget chunky or heavy Cabinet hardware that might overcrowd a small space, making it look too busy and which could catch on your clothes. Think of slimline handles or knobs that allow you to move around freely in a tight space, match with simple streamlined cabinets for a simple space saving visual effect.
If you have only a few cupboards for use, think of using knobs or eyelid pulls that will give you the freedom to move around but will not overcrowd your space. Our K48- Wagga Wagga Knobs or C76- Eye Lid Pull Handles for two splendid examples.
For that extra space saving prospect look into modern lip pull handles like our C137 Caloundra Cabinet Handles, these Handles fit on top of the door or drawer to give a minimalist look. Our C81- Flush Ring Finger Pull Handle is another perfect space saver cabinet hardware as they are flush but have a comfortable and practical ring pull use. Or choose a slim line pull handle that has a straight flat bar with a small lip pull, our C87- Bundall Cabinet Handles these come in various of sizes.
Choose handles or knobs that still give you the easiest comfortable, functional and most practical of use. You do not want handles with long over hangs that will catch your pockets as you turn around in your kitchen. Try finding a handle that suits the space and you.
Bow handles can give you the flexibility of design with functionality, like our C18- Maroochydore Cabinet Handles that come in two different two-toned finishes. Cup Pulls are also has a great look, they are safe and comfortable to use in small spaces.
