Small Kitchen Ideas

Living in Australian cities can mean higher rent, which means you may end up with a smaller kitchen. However, a tiny space doesn’t have to sacrifice efficiency or style. Even though you might not have a spacious kitchen, you can still have room for everything you need.

For everyone with small kitchens: this article is for you. We’ll discuss the best small kitchen ideas and design tips from our kitchen experts at Goldline. By the end of reading this, you’ll have a better idea of how to optimise your small kitchen design.

Small Kitchen Design Tips

Goldline’s engineers have spent over 34 years developing state of the art cooktops for small kitchens. Here are our best tips on how to maximise efficiency and style in your kitchen, even if it’s tinier than most.

Work with the Layout

The key to small kitchen design is to work with the layout of your space. For example, if you have a one-wall kitchen, put the cooktop, countertops, and cabinets all on one wall. Don’t try to cram elements on both sides of the kitchen.

Hang Things Up

Another small kitchen idea is to hang as many things as possible. Hanging cooking tools, pots and pans, and other kitchen gadgets will save a lot of space. We also recommend a magnetic knife strip, which allows the knives to be put away neatly.

Embrace Minimalism

To keep your kitchen from looking cluttered, only have two or three appliances that you can’t live without. For example, you could have a toaster oven, electric cooktop, and a fridge. If there are any extra appliances such as a rice cooker or tea kettle, you can donate them.

Maximise Storage

To making the most out of small kitchens, we recommend using smart storage. Instead of traditional wall cabinets, try using open shelving for cups, plates and bowls. You can sort items according to how often you use them. For example, less often used items can go on higher, harder to reach shelves; more frequently used things can go on lower shelves.

Narrow Electric Cooktops

A narrow electric cooktop is ideal for smaller spaces since it can easily fit onto a small countertop. Goldline manufacturers the most narrow electric cooktops in Australia, which are also highly efficient.

The hidden secret in Goldline’s electric cooktops lies in the nine-stage power setting. With the touch of a button, the cook can take their dish from boiling to the perfect simmer—no more guesswork or burning your food.

We believe that we’ve manufactured the best electric cooktop on the market in terms of aesthetics and functionality. The sleek continuous ceramic glass matches with nearly any kitchen design. It also ages beautifully since it’s so easy to clean and maintain.

We hope that this article inspires you to make the most out of your small kitchen. With a simple change in appliances or storage, your space can look brand new.
