Small Kitchen Design Ideas

Looking for inspiration for your kitchen renovation, but your space is on the small side? Don’t let a tiny space discourage you from finding design excellence. You’ll find all the inspiration you need to make your project a success here in the Houzz image gallery!

Making a small kitchen work hard

From layout to appliances, when everything needs to fit into a tight space, you want your kitchen to work extra hard while looking fabulous at the same time. When it’s all about maximising the little space you have there’ll invariably be a lot of questions. How are you going to store and organise all your stuff? Are open shelves better than cabinets? Which tiles and colours will help make the space look bigger? Can you fit in an island? And where the hell are you supposed to put your bin? You may even want the room to have a double-purpose, like fit in a dining area, laundry or other appliances. It can be overwhelming, but here’s how to get started:

Know what you want and need

Before looking at images, you need to know your space and what is realistically achievable. Looking at spaces you won’t be able to afford, or appliances that won’t fit into your space will only leave you frustrated. So be clear on that and use the filters above to refine your selection. You’re already looking at small kitchen designs, but you can refine further and set the right filters for you. You can look at small kitchens on a budget or modern small kitchens, and eventually you can even drill down look at designs in your specific area, like Melbourne, to see work from professionals near you - and hire them for your project.

Browse the gallery to get inspired

Once you’ve set your filters, browse the photos and collect your favourites in an ideabook. You can share your collection with your architect or interior designer later and give them a visual brief of what you want - you’ll see that showing pictures is so much easier than trying to explain in words! You and your designer will also be able to collaborate and leave comments, so ideabooks can be a great tool in bringing your dreams to life.

Your professional will also be able to answer all your pressing questions and provide valuable guidance. The right colour scheme, a statement splashback or an eye-catching floor tile can absolutely make or break your design.

So what are you waiting for? Start browsing photos now - we can’t wait to see what you create!
