When decorating a small kitchen, a number of strategies can be utilized to maximize the space. Paint the walls with a light or bright color to create the illusion of more space. Install a tile backsplash, either above the stove or the sink, to liven up the small space with some personality.
Another idea is to install glass cabinet doors, or remove the cabinet doors altogether, and display dishes as decorative features. Take this idea a step further by placing some cabinet items in textured baskets or colorful containers as a way to keep everything on display in an organized and neat manner. Maximize wall space by installing shelving and displaying artistic decorations, mugs or spices. Another way to play up personality in a small kitchen is to install curtains with hold colors and patterns over the window. If curtains are not a desirable option, utilize the space between two cabinets flanking a window by building some shelves. This is a great way to create more storage for dishes or space to display art, vases or other decorations. And finally, select unique lighting fixtures or a small chandelier in order to shed some decorative light on any small kitchen space.
