Small Kitchens

Elements and Definitions of Small Kitchens

Before you begin remodeling, it is important to understand exactly what constitutes small kitchen design. Any kitchen that is 100 square feet or less is small. This means that you typically will not find an island or extensive counter space. However, even beautiful small kitchens can be extremely functional! 

A smaller kitchen needs to focus on making functional elements easily accessible in the layer. The stove, oven, pantry, cabinets, and fridge all need to have the right flow. Otherwise, you will continue to feel like you do not have enough space to make a meal for family and friends. 

Once small kitchen makeovers have the functional elements locked in, then the design elements can begin. Small kitchen remodels give you the opportunity to include the materials you want! You can get rid of the laminate flooring and formica tops with ease. Then, you can include the tile backsplash, wood or tile flooring, recessed lighting, stainless steel appliances, and the quartz or marble kitchen counters you have always desired!

How To Make A Small Kitchen Look Bigger

Open Up Your Space

One crucial step in any remodel small kitchen project is to focus on making your kitchen look bigger. Several steps can be taken in order to achieve this. The first step is to open up your space.  Most small kitchens are galleys, which resemble a hallway with countertops and appliances on either side of the space. During the design, demo, and installation of your new appliances and countertops, they should be placed in a way that creates the most surface area for you to walk around. 

Select bright, lights colors

The next step is to select bright, light colors. Lighter colors allow your small space to look larger and more open. Dark colors tend to close off a space and make it appear smaller than it actually is. The final step is to choose lighting options that trick the eye. Recessed lighting allows more light to be displayed than ornate and clucky lighting installations. By having more light in the room, less shadows are visible. Without shadows, your small kitchen remodeling makes your space appear larger and more inviting.

Kitchen Renovation, Los Angeles

Oasis Builders and Neev are hands down the absolute BEST! Having never done any construction or renovations of any kind, the whole process of renovating a new kitchen was so daunting to think about, but from the moment we first met Neev, we were put at ease and we knew he was the one! Neev was the first contractor we met with when shopping out contractors, but we did our due diligence to meet with at least 5 more. He set the bar so high on our first meeting that no one else even came close! He was so personable and super professional, understood our vision while also offering such great insight on the project as a whole. Every step of the way he was right there with us, incredibly patient and making sure everything was going to plan. His team is very hard working, always professional and always helpful and everything they did looked just spectacular in the end. Highly, highly recommended!!

I hired Oasis Builders for my full kitchen renovation and I could not be more happy with the service Neev and his team provided. Home remodeling is always tough, you never know what to expect. But thanks to Neev, we got the job done and the results are SPECTACULAR! What sets Oasis Builders head and shoulders above the rest is the level of care, consideration and compassion. No matter what obstacle we faced, Neev was right there with a solution and how we could move the project forward.
