If you’ve moved into a new place with a smaller kitchen space, you may be struggling to think of how to effectively decorate the room while maintaining both functionality and style. You, ideally, don’t want to create a cluttered space where you’re bumping into furniture, which could be terrible for the overall feng shui of the space.

However, you may not want the kitchen to look bare either. If you need top decor tips to give your kitchen an aesthetically pleasing appeal, we’ve got your back.

1. Make use of wall space

Should you have fewer cupboards and drawers to store your essentials, make use of the space on your walls to incorporate floating shelves, and add-ons, where it makes sense to do so. Remember, you don’t want your kitchen to be too cluttered, therefore it is important to be strategic in the placement of items to ensure that messiness is avoided.

2. Try a minimalist look

If your kitchen is smaller and fewer items can be placed therein, why don’t you embrace that fact and go for a chic, minimalist aesthetic? Have your counters pristine with only a few items placed thereon. There is no need to hide certain appliances you use daily, such as your toaster or kettle, but just ensure that the space is clean and not filled to the brim with miscellaneous items.

3. Find the right table or island

@the_cyclists_abode Kitchen Ideas Part 1 ✨ Morning! Planning m and making choices for a kitchen reno especially when space is a challenge is not easy. Mine’s a standard galley kitchen with a mini extension/diner nook. I can’t afford a kitchen extension and island, so this will do! I spent ages thinking about how to cram everything and still have practical and plenty of storage space left, so hopefully you find these useful. It’s all down to personal choice and these are some of the things I opted for: • hang blinds higher to make ceiling seem taller • the @LPD Doors glazed door let’s in lots of natural light and looks so beautiful • integrated waste and recycling bin. After living with a freestanding bin for 6 years…it was time! • hide and slide oven door tucked away is great, no need to manoeuvre over chunky doors. More to come. Have you got some great space saving tips and ideas? 🧡 #kitchenhacks #fy #foryou #foryoupage #viral #smallkitchen #smallkitchenhacks #smallkitchensolutions #smallkitchendecor #smallkitchenorganization #smallkitchendesign #neptunehome #kitchenstorage #kitchenorganization #fixerupper ♬ PrettyGirl(抖音热搜版) - 王梦瑶

Integrate a table or island into your kitchen that fits well. You don’t want to be bumping into the corner of a sharp table when you are in the space. Consider the functionality of the room and your needs before incorporating any furnishings.

4. Play around with textures

A wonderful way to add to the overall flow of the space and integrate diversity therein is to amalgamate diverse textures and fabrics. Juxtapose patterned wallpaper with plain, neutral-coloured cabinetry. Add natural wood and colourful chairs. It’s important to consider your budget, but be creative and play around as far as possible. The space is yours, so enjoy it.
