The kitchen is probably one, if not the most remodeled area of the house. It has definitely gained so much attention from homeowners nowadays, probably because the kitchen has become the center or the hub of social and family activities. However, it doesn’t only hold true for family homeowners, it also applies to single people living in pads and condominiums, or college students living in dorms and apartments. But the difference, probably lies in the size and use of the kitchen. Compared to family houses, with wide kitchens, these single spacers only has a small space allotted for kitchens. Still, there’s an opportunity for these small kitchens to look good and new.
Small kitchen remodeling may not actually follow what the usual kitchen remodeling complexities have, but the basic must-haves should be present. Depending on who lives in that small place, whether he prefers a minimalist style or she likes a decorative one, the important aspects of the kitchen must still be there. Take for example, the countertops, at least cover all floor spaces with a counter space, and use a good countertop material that would suit your taste and design. There should also be cabinets, cupboards, and drawers filling up the empty spaces below the countertops and built on the walls, the more storage space you have, the better. Try to have built-in appliances to maximize the area and the little space you have. Your lighting must give a good effect on the room, making it look spacious and comfortable. There are other details which may vary depending on the person using the kitchen. If he or she usually uses her kitchen to cook or bake or work, try using tiles on the walls just above the sink, stove and countertops, for easier cleaning, and to give a variety on the look. You may also use unique and modern decorative handles and knobs for the cabinets and drawers to give a nice and fresh touch.
