5 Must-Have Features for A Small Kitchen

As a designer in Toronto, I often advise clients with small kitchens on how to maximize their tight layouts. I recommend removing all or some of the upper cabinets to open up the visual space around the room, and running tile on the backsplash to the ceiling to visually heighten the look of the room. If you're worried about losing storage, consider a hardworking island or consult with a design pro to maximize lower cabinet storage with pullouts, drawers and other high-functioning components. The most important details in this text are that open shelves should have a depth of at least 10 inches, and that a "handleless" kitchen should feature cabinets with a lip or touch latch. Choosing the same color for your shelves and walls can help create an airy vibe and let your stylish dishes and decorative items pop, but be prepared to stay organized and do extra dusting.

Invisible hardware can take up a lot of visual and physical space. This London kitchen by Homeconcepts is a good example of how clean and airy a small kitchen can look without hardware, as the muted cabinet color blends in with the wall, backsplash and countertop tones.
