Designing a kitchen can seem like a tough feat, especially in small city-living apartments. Though most kitchens may seem the same from the outside—spaces equipped with cooktops, countertops, and other appliances—there are many stylistic ways to make the space your own.
In this article, we’ll be giving aesthetic and practical kitchen design ideas. If you read until the end, you’ll also learn helpful tips to help you avoid a cluttered mess in a small space.
Small Kitchen Ideas
Even in petite spaces, it’s possible to make your kitchen ideas pop. Here are a few small kitchen ideas to help you get the most out of your small kitchen.
Make the most out of your countertops
Creating multipurpose countertops can add more space to your kitchen layout. Counter space can be a place to cook, wash, and dine all in one. We recommend installing a few shelves above countertops instead of storing things on them. Open shelving can make the space seem more open and inviting.
Opt for smaller appliances
Smaller appliances like a narrow electric cooktop from Goldline can reduce that cramped feeling in a small space. Goldline sells the most narrow gas cooktops and electric stovetops on the market to fit in modern kitchens. It’s also a good idea to minimise the number of appliances on countertops to make the space seem less cluttered.
Get creative with splashbacks
Splashbacks are an easy way to customise a kitchen and elevate its design. You can add mirrored tiles or a shiny surface to make the area look better. Any material that reflects light will make the kitchen look bigger and brighter.
Kitchen Island Ideas
A kitchen island is another way to create a kitchen more suited to your needs and lifestyle. Most people place a sink on the island, but why not install a cooktop? If you lack countertop space, an island can be transformed into a cooking space itself.
Another stylish option is to use a bar cart or a small, decorative table as an island. This design choice will make your kitchen stand out from the rest. You can also add barstools to the island to get more functionality out of it.
Finally, there’s the option to use a dining table as an island for something different. We suggest choosing one with a similar shape as an island, such as a long, rustic dining table.
Elevate Your Kitchen Design with a Goldline Cooktop
Even with the perfect layout and design, the kitchen’s overall aesthetic appeal might be lacking. If this is due to old, rusty appliances, why not swap out your old stovetop for a Goldline cooktop?
