4 Home Décor Storage Tips for Small Kitchens

If you have a small kitchen like many people do, chances are you are challenged to find the  space for all of your essential kitchen tools and supplies. The kitchen is the heart of the home,  and this means that not only do you cook in the kitchen; you entertain, spend time with family  and do a variety of other tasks too. How you use your kitchen is going to be different than some  other people, so the storage solutions that you choose should be matched to your unique kitchen  storage needs. Let’s take a look at some small kitchen storage tips that can help you utilize every  inch of kitchen space.  

  1. Market Big Impact with a New Backsplash  

If your kitchen is bland and boring and you only have a little bit of money to put in to  your kitchen decorating endeavors than this is a great place to invest. Choose inexpensive  tiles that coordinate with the current color scheme in your kitchen or change out your  kitchen accessories to match the colors in your new tile backsplash. Simply creating a  small section of colorful tiles by the sink area of your kitchen will add drama and  brighten up the space.  

  1. Add Shelves 

If you want to make the most of your small kitchen then adding storage shelves that take  advantage of vertical space is a great way to provide you with the extra storage space you  need. Add floating shelves on the walls for additional space, or mount shelving in  between the frame of the window in your kitchen to provide you with the perfect place to  store your kitchen collectibles and accessories that you would like to put on display.  

  1. Keep it Neutral  

If you are already working with limited space in your kitchen, then you may want to tone  down the amount of color that you use to help your kitchen feel larger. Choosing light  colored paint in shades of grey, blue or brown are sure to help your kitchen feel bigger.  Keep the ceilings in your kitchen white, this helps the ceilings to feel higher and will also  provide the illusion of a larger space.  

  1. Add Pops of Color 

While it is wise to choose neutral colors or your cabinets, counters and walls if you have  a small kitchen, this does not mean that your kitchen has to be cold and bland. A great  way to add color into a small kitchen is through small pops of a single shade of color or  using two complimentary colors. Add accessories such as pictures, vases, accessories and  accent pieces that have the same color scheme to give your neutral kitchen the pop of  color it needs to liven it up.
