5 space-saving ways to renovate your kitchen

December 26, 2021

Every aspect of your home is important, and the kitchen is no exception. A good, well-maintained kitchen can make your life much easier than you can imagine. On the other hand, a cluttered kitchen won’t even make you feel like entering, let alone cook 3 times a day.

Especially in today’s time when buying a big apartment is like buying a rare diamond… and organizing a small one is like building the stairs to heaven.

Even according to a recent survey, it was found that the average apartment has shrunk by 27% in the last 5 years.

Now, we can only imagine what is going to happen in the future.

That’s why it has become really challenging for interior designers to come up with solutions so that people’s lives are not affected by “space”, especially in the kitchen.

But, if you are low on budget, that’s totally okay. You can renovate your apartment on your own, it just requires a big splash of creativity.

Which you can find here.

Below are the 5 space-saving, creative ways of Kitchen Renovations Melbourne.

1. Install open shelves and custom cabinets

Small, ready-made apartments are almost similar to one another. That means no-specific kinds of alterations were made to suit your needs.

So, the best way you can make changes there is by installing open shelves. Open shelves are a great way to display your elegant crockeries and also to add a pop of color. But make sure that you keep it organized because you cannot hurriedly put stuff anywhere onto it Also, make sure, the shelf has enough width, so you don’t end up throwing them on the floor.

You can also opt for installing custom cabinets. Most ready-made cabinets are huge, making the kitchen space feel very clustered. So, instead, renovate your cabinet space.

Add a rolling drawer on the top shelf for small plates or utensils and keep the drawer on the lower shelf for storing the big utensils and containers.

This will ideally save you more space, and also add a beautiful touch to your home.

2. Color choice

If you hadn’t realized it by now, colors play a huge role in making your kitchen feel spacious. I personally recommend pastel shades rather than very bright or dark colors, as pastels give you a soothing appearance. Even white is a very good option – so make your best pick and make sure it also coordinates with the rest of the world.

3. Opt for a cutout

If you want to renovate your kitchen, but are on a budget then opting for a cutout will be an ideal choice. The best way to do this is by cutting the wall in front of the kitchen that faces the living room.

This is a very fascinating way to deceive the viewers. The cutouts in the walls makes it appear larger than it actually is. Sure plumbing and electricity have to be checked, but still, you will be able to save some bucks because the ceiling won’t be hampered.

Further, you will also be able to plan some family gatherings, which otherwise is comparatively hard.

4. Mix and match patterns

Another great way to add a good renovating touch to your kitchen is by using a mix and match pattern.

If your cabinets have a wooden design, go with white laminated countertops, or you can even go with the same color of countertops and cabinet color. The idea is to visually expand the area of the kitchen space and not to make it look straight from a catalog.

5. Add bright lights

Probably the most brilliant, easiest, and affordable way to make the kitchen look more spacious and welcoming is by adding brighter lights. Even if you aren’t renovating, adding a bright, led-light is going to change the whole outlook of your kitchen.

You can go ahead and add it on your ceiling or under your cabinets or even washbasin. It definitely enhances the aesthetic appeal of your kitchen.

6. Add glass to the décor

Adding glass to your kitchen decor will be one of the best things you will invest in your kitchen. Not only it makes the kitchen more beautiful, it actually makes the kitchen feel more spacious.

One thing you should keep in mind though, is that go for colors that will be compatible with the glass cabinets, so the overall look isn’t compromised.

Over to you…

With these ideas, I am sure you have got a good idea and already imagined the new look of your kitchen. So, are you ready for a makeover?
