Remodeling Ideas For Small Kitchens

27 March

The kitchen is one of the most important and most frequently used spaces in your home. Families often entertain in the kitchen, cook together, sit down to eat together, pay bills or children complete homework. As such an important gathering place of your home and one that serves multiple functions you want to make sure that your kitchen is designed in a way that makes sense for you and your family and can serve your multiple needs. Sometimes this can seem impossible, especially if you are working with a kitchen that’s a smaller size but don’t let this discourage you from finding the kitchen of your dreams. Even smaller kitchens can be remodeled to fit your needs and still be comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. Professionals at Doppler Construction have worked on remodeling kitchens of all sizes and can help you brainstorm ideas for a newly remodeled space 

A small kitchen doesn’t have to complicate your remodel, consider these tips below on how to utilize your space:

An Open Concept

One of the best ways to keep a smaller space from feeling constricted is to use an open concept floor plan. Don’t box in your kitchen or it will make it feel even smaller than it is. Instead, consider opening it up to the rest of the house by removing walls or relocating appliances or pantries. By opening the space to the rest of the home it will make it feel like the kitchen is larger even though you haven’t actually added any square footage. 

Utilize Color 

Color can be your best friend in small spaces. Bright whites will create an open and airy feel and can be used as wall color, cabinetry color, or in lighter countertops or backsplashes. Although you typically want to avoid darker colors in smaller spaces you don’t need to avoid them all together. Rather than all dark cabinets or walls consider using pops of color. These can be added either in backsplash, lower cabinets, or an accent wall. All of these options will allow you to add that darker color and bring more interest and depth into the room. 

Updated Appliances

Don’t discount the power of new appliances. Many newer models have a sleeker, more modern look that will help your space feel less cluttered. These updates will also help keep your kitchen functional. 


In a smaller space you’ll want to prioritize the things you need. If you absolutely want a kitchen island choose a smaller style or if you know you need a lot of storage make sure to add both top and bottom cabinets, so you have enough space and keep your countertops from getting cluttered.
