Small Kitchen Ideas

Whether you’re living in a house or apartment, small kitchens can pose a lot of problems, especially when it comes to functionality and storage opportunities. These small kitchen ideas from the interior design experts at Star Furniture will help you make the most of your space.

Choose the Right Kitchen Furniture

Even if your kitchen feels cramped, there are furniture decisions you can implement to help make your space more functional. In fact, the right furniture can even create the illusion of space so your room will feel larger.

Kitchen Islands & Buffets

Creating additional space for food prep and storage is easy with the right kitchen island or buffet table. If you’re looking for extra seating and storage space, the Trisha Yearwood Coming Home 3-Piece Kitchen Island & Counter Stools might be the right choice. Not only does it come with counter seating, but the island itself has multiple drawers, two additional shelves, and a hanging rod for kitchen towels.

Dining Room Tables

While adding additional furniture to an already small kitchen might seem counterintuitive, dining room tables can actually help you better utilize the space. Counter-height tables can be especially useful for taking advantage of small spaces, as they can provide extra counter space. Plus, the height of the table can make the room appear larger.

Keep Things Organized

Keeping things organized in an intuitive way can help you make the most of your small kitchen. Consider using organization tools like hanging pot and pan holders, wall-mounted storage, and bins to help maximize your space. While things you use regularly should be easily accessible, other kitchen accessories can be stored wherever they might fit.
