Kitchen Makeovers / September 18, 2018 / Alfred Johnson.
We’ve put together some small-kitchen decorating ideas that tackle the following issues with good design solutions. The three most common small-kitchen complaints are clutter, lack of counter space and a dark kitchen.
Install cabinet lighting. The importance of good lighting cannot be stressed enough, and in kitchens especially the lighting is often insufficient, coming just from ceiling fixtures in the center of the room. Add lighting under, above and even inside the cabinets to make the room feel much brighter and bigger, as the dark shadows around the cabinets would otherwise visually shrink the space.
To give your new display life, add LED under-cabinet lighting to highlight the items. Battery-powered lights are available if cabinet wiring is an issue.
Be aware of the pros and cons. With expert planning, an L-shaped kitchen will allow for an organized and efficient workflow. And because you can separate work zones in this layout, it can easily and comfortably accommodate you and another user simultaneously.
