Fitted kitchens for small spaces

Here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen specialists. From contemporary to traditional, we have a range of kitchens that are suitable for any home, with any style or theme in mind. This includes even the smallest kitchen. After all, just because your kitchen is small, doesn’t mean it should miss out on decorative flair. As a result we have produced this guide to fitted kitchens for small spaces.

Kitchen fixtures

The sink, the oven, and the fridge/freezer are all essential components to any kitchen, no matter how small. Washing machines, dishwashers and dryers are additional extras, with washing machines and dryers not technically considered as kitchen items. So that means if you want to fit these items in, you will have to lose out on some cupboard space.

This all means that if you have a small space to work with, your kitchen may get filled out easily, with not a lot of space underneath units for cupboards. However, this doesn’t mean that your kitchen will not be suitable. There are many storage solutions that can help to provide additional storage, without taking up too much space.

Kitchen cabinets

Magic corner cupboards and drawers behind cupboard doors can be extremely helpful if you have a small amount of space to work with. Storage solutions hidden inside the usual kitchen cabinets can be a great way to save space and keep your small kitchen looking tidy and well organised.

Colours and lighting

Finally, once all of your fixtures are accounted for, and your storage is sorted, you should consider the style and design of kitchen you aim to create. Whether its rustic with timber surfaces, or contemporary with glossy reflective surfaces, your small kitchen can be just as stylish as the largest. Make sure your lighting fits with the style or theme you are opting for as this will help create the desired effect, especially in a small kitchen.
