5 Ideas for Your Small York Kitchen Remodel

Built-in shelves

Built-in shelves can help keep your kitchen organized without adding extra space. And because countertop space is always a premium in small kitchens, utilizing plenty of shelving will help you make the most of every square inch of countertop space.

Folding countertop space

A creative home remodeler can make the most of your walkable floor space by creating countertops or a table that can fold into the wall. Think of it like a murphy bed for counters. When you don’t need the counter or table, simply fold it up so that you have more floor space to easily move around the room. Plus a folding countertop is a unique design element that makes a great conversation piece!

Island with storage

If your kitchen is large enough for an island, consider buying or having one made that provides storage underneath. In small spaces storage is always at a premium so finding unique ways to incorporate shelving and drawers can go a long. Rather than wasting precious floor real estate with an island, make it multitask by adding storage during your York kitchen remodel.

Paint it white

This classic trick has remained popular for decades for good reason: expanses of white make a room feel larger and more open, regardless of the actual size. While painting the walls won’t actually free up more space, it will make your kitchen appear significantly larger than a darker hue.

Install glass cabinet doors

Much like the painting trick, glass cabinet doors won’t actually add extra space but they will make your space appear larger. By allowing the light to flow through them they create the illusion of expansion, making your kitchen appear larger. It’s also a great way to display pretty dishware collections.
