Let’s review the basics on mid-century design and why it works for a small kitchen: Pastels and bright, vibrant colors add life to a small kitchen by brightening it and giving it a cheerful vibe. The minimalist open space concept of tall ceilings, fewer walls or open shelving makes a small kitchen look larger and removes some of the heaviness dark cabinets can create. Wood adds value and a warm, earthy feel. Fun, quirky retro or vintage accessories and appliances put fun back into a small kitchen design.
We’re all trying to lessen our carbon footprint, and your outdated kitchen appliances are a great place to start. If an appliance upgrade is in your future, be sure to make it energy efficient! You’ll get a modern look while saving water and energy — good for the earth and your bills. Consider replacing plumbing fixtures as well, as low-flow kitchen faucets save a lot of water. Updating your kitchen shouldn’t only be for aesthetics; it should also help save you money and the Earth’s resources.
Much like the refrigerator, a stovetop is a non-negotiable in a kitchen. Our team has a variety of preferences on the type of cooking surface; some of us prefer a gas range while others love a glass-top stove. The latter is easy to clean and adds a nice streamlined aesthetic to the kitchen while the former allows you greater control over your cooking temperature.
Your own freezer is a cool area where you put various bits of edible fare for future use or to be maintained at a cold temperature. The freezer isn't gorgeous, and if it is doing it's job, you'll never understand about it. That is, of course, until you are faced with a freezer that is on its way out.
