By definition and exact measurements, a small kitchen is one that generally has a space of 9 feet x 14 feet. Although there are a lot of tasks you do in this cooking area, your kitchen might be small; and in order to utilize the space, you might need to do small kitchen remodeling. However what exactly is all implied when it comes to remodeling your tiny kitchen? In kitchen remodeling, you have to think about lighting, electrical needs, plumbing, ventilation, garbage disposal, proper space utilization, etc.
You might be sitting in envy of the people who have large spaces to work with in their kitchens, but there are advantages to having a small kitchen, nevertheless. First of all, it is less expensive to remodel this room, and if you have the money to spend, you can think about expensive materials like granite, stainless steel, marble, stock cabinets, custom cabinets, and the like. Trying to add expensive materials to a much larger kitchen will take more stuff and will be much more expensive. So small in many instances is good.
You can get a professional to work on your small kitchen remodeling or you can do it yourself because it is really not all that difficult and you can do it as a nice long weekend project. The small space allows you to manage the renovation yourself. If you’re dealing with a small space, you’re more likely to succeed in installing the tiles that you want on your counter by yourself without needing a second set of hands. Before you start remodeling though, think about the common layouts that kitchens can have. Would it do to have a one wall, a galley, a U shape, or an L shape when you’re doing small kitchen remodeling? You need to scratch having an island counter in your kitchen as that just won’t fit in such a tiny space.
Love the idea of having a single sink or putting a storage room for appliances or things you don’t use much outside the kitchen. Think about what is most valuable to you in a kitchen space. Is it storage? If so, you need to maximize cabinets at the cost of appliances. You can use stock cabinetry that you can install yourself. Also, use larger tiles for your small kitchen remodeling to make it appear larger. Also as your cooking area is a rather small one, you need to start thinking of how to make best use of the empty spaces, of your bare walls. Getting a couple of kitchen utensil holders that are hanging nicely from the walls or are sitting on the top of your counters is just one way of saving your so precious space in the tiny cooking area.
