Condo Kitchen Design Tips

Posted on: February 10, 2014

If you live in a condo, own one in the US, or have a holiday condo in another tropical location, it’s important to keep it looking the way you want. And this means occasionally revamping it and getting it remodeled.

If you always feel cramped in your kitchen, it may not have to do with the size of the space in general. A small kitchen does not equal an inefficient kitchen! With the right design, condo kitchens can be efficient and storage-savvy. Doing renovations to your kitchen can make you feel so much better about your space.

Small Kitchen Remodeling

When it comes to small condo kitchens, keep the following design tips in mind:

  • Lighter color schemes (and natural light) can help your kitchen appear larger and more spacious
  • Build up rather than out
  • Make sure movement and traffic flow will be unobstructed

Kitchen design professionals can help you come up with the right design for your small space, but in general, smaller kitchen designs utilize:

Light: Yes, all kitchens need good lighting, but small kitchens (such as those in condos, townhouses, etc.) can appear more spacious with the right light. Consider lighter color schemes-white, beige, pale yellow, light gray, etc. Also, natural light can make a small kitchen seem bigger. Installing a bay or other large window is a good way to capture a lot of light from outside.

Easy Movement: You should be able to move freely in your kitchen, no matter how small it is. The traditional work triangle and an open concept design (if space permits) are good ways to maximize efficiency and facilitate a good traffic flow.

Vertical Space: There are many ways you can maximize vertical space-narrow floor-to-ceiling cabinets, wall mounted racks, hanging pot and pan racks, etc. Galley kitchens, in particular, require you to use vertical space wisely.

Integrated Design: Integrated appliances, which are hidden away, help reduce clutter and increase work areas. When your kitchen space is limited, you want as much work surfaces as possible. Appliance garages, as well as speed ovens and other compact appliances, can help clear clutter and free up space, which is crucial in a small kitchen.
