Sleek Looking Eclectic Kitchens for Small Homes

Kitchen is a high traffic zone where all of us meet at least twice daily if not more frequently. To have an aesthetic looking kitchen can start our days in a better mood. Imagine how dreary and dull kitchen can dampen our spirits first thing in the morning and make our day not interesting! It is most important to have a delightful looking kitchen with sleek and elegant looks.

Small houses and studio apartments need to pay more attention when they furnish their kitchens. If they happen to have not an efficiently designed kitchen where the homemaker can spend time without feeling fatigued, they need to get a minimum makeover. They need to incorporate changes that will make the kitchen better planned, with more practical storage for added comfort.

Having a floor to ceiling size storage units can be a boon for home makers. Instead of having all the shelves of uniform height, they need to vary the heights of shelves to compactly fit the items without wasting vertical space. You can leave the top shelves at the top near the ceiling level with more height to store extra boxes and containers that are bigger in size. This is ideal for beautiful house designs.

You can make the wall shelves wider – wall to wall and not make the shelves too deep – not only do they take more space, having more than two deep rows can make it difficult to reach the items that are kept at the back. But under the kitchen counter, you can have deep drawers – to utilize the space fully beneath the counters where you can store large containers and pots/pans.

Today drainage boards and drying racks are coming that can be drawn across the sink and folded back when not in use. Likewise cutting boards can be drawn across the sink and folded inside when not in use. Shallow sliding panels with small ledges can be of use to house spice bottles and small tins that can be fitted to the kitchen cupboard doors or even on the hob splash backs – within easy reach when cooking.

Get some hooks fitted underneath the shelves for hanging up mugs and cups. Bar shelves for holding your stemware can also be accommodated under the shelves. Here are images of compact kitchens with sleek looking kitchen counters and sophisticated kitchen islands from Scavolini. Check at the optimal use of space and chic overall ambiance!
