GET INSPIRATION FOR THE SMALL KITCHEN
How can you make the most of your kitchen when space is limited? A small kitchen does not necessarily mean cramped and stuffed cabinets and drawers - just as few square meters also does not mean that you have to settle for a kitchenette. There is a lot you can do to make room for all your service and your kitchen appliances in your small kitchen.
Here you get good advice on how to make the most of a small kitchen.
USE THE COLORS AND GET THE FEELING OF MORE AIR
If you do not have an extra square meter to expand the small kitchen, you can instead use colors that open up the room. That way, you can do much to create the illusion that the room is bigger than it actually is.
Think about which colors you choose when designing your new kitchen. With a few square meters, it can be tempting to choose only bright and white colors, but by using both dark and light shades, you highlight the bright elements and create dynamics.
ONE ROOM LIVING - THE OBVIOUS CHOICE FOR THE SMALL KITCHEN
Make the most of your studio apartment with one room living. The kitchen's new central role in the home means it is no longer just a place where you chop vegetables and fry steaks. It's also where you drink a cup of delicious coffee, read a book or hang out with friends and family.
When there is room for all the functions in a single room, there is a need to think creatively. For example, try an integrated sofa or a discreet pull-out table.
A KITCHEN FOR THE SMALLER ROOM THAT SUITS YOUR NEEDS
A good kitchen is one where the functionality is top notch and fits your personal wishes and needs. We all have very different attitudes to what our kitchens must be able to work both purely in terms of work and aesthetics. It is therefore important that you carefully consider what wishes you have for your new kitchen and whether they are possible to meet at the given kitchen area. Do you need extra table space to chop, cut and cook? Or would you rather save the extra table space away and make room for a small dining corner? So it's about getting your priorities and wishes for your new kitchen.
Consider the following 5 questions before choosing a new kitchen for the smaller room
1. What are you satisfied with / dissatisfied with in your present kitchen?
2. Should the kitchen only be adapted to your needs, or are you more about using the kitchen?
3. Should there be a dining corner? Or would you rather have extra table space?
4. What style do you want your kitchen to have - and does it fit the style for the rest of your apartment?
5. Can your dreams be realized spatially and economically?
MAKE ROOM FOR THE GOOD SOCIABLE

GET TO KNOW THE KITCHEN'S 5 WORK ZONES
When designing a small kitchen, there is a greater need to be creative and think strategically. Your kitchen can be divided into 5 work zones, which are special areas of the kitchen that each have their own purpose.
By using the work zones strategically and thinking about which zones you use in your everyday life, you get the most from your kitchen. Typically, zones such as the cleaning, cooking and cooking zones will be essential and indispensable in your kitchen. If you eat the most out, you can cut down on both the food and non-food zones.
