If you are redesigning your apartment then your kitchen should be on the top of your to-do list.
The kitchen space in a small apartment is so important because it has to serve several purposes:
- Storage – if you live in a small apartment then you won’t have a lot of storage. You need to be able to store a number of items in your kitchen while still having access to them. Items should be easy to reach, including:
- Pots and pans
- Small appliances
- Cleaning supplies
- Functionality – you need to have room in the kitchen to properly cook and ventilate and poorly designed kitchen cabinets can interfere with the overall functionality of the space
- Entertaining – you will likely do a lot of entertaining in your kitchen, especially if your apartment is an open concept
If possible, have a designer look at your kitchen space and draw up a plan for your kitchen cabinets. They should be space efficient and also easy to access.
If there is no way for you to completely redesign your kitchen cabinet layout you still have other options. What do you do if you have a small apartment, small kitchen and limited cabinet space?
In such a scenario it’s all about organization! Consider using organizational tools like having a lazy susan installed in your cabinetry. These types of organizational solutions can help you find space in your cabinets where you thought there was none.
Painting your kitchen cabinets is another way to spruce up your kitchen and change the design without making a major renovation. Whatever you decided to do contact Granite Transformations to talk to one of our friendly experts about kitchen cabinet design for apartment spaces.
