Modern Small Kitchen Cabinets

If you have a modern small kitchen or you’re looking into a kitchenette, you don’t need to sacrifice convenience due to lack of space. If you install the right cabinets, you can enjoy plenty of storage for all your kitchen essentials and even add to your work surface space. Modern small kitchen cabinets typically include counter or sink base cabinets, wall cabinets, open shelving and, if there’s enough room, an island with cabinets for extra storage. Despite your kitchen’s small size, it offers a lot of design potential. 

We’re talking about everything from smart storage ideas to design inspiration to make your small kitchen a space you’ll actually enjoy cooking in. Cookspaces are often small, but often the best things in life are found in small packages. Having unique kitchen decor that reflects the owner’s personality will make small kitchens function just as efficiently as large ones infused with proper design and layout. 

Keeping an open mind and thinking outside the box are key tips for designing a small kitchen. The narrow galley-style kitchen, for instance, can be an ideal place to indulge your color fantasies with a saturated kitchen paint color, wallpaper, or patterned backsplash. 

You can also make small kitchens more organized by using open shelves, drawers, or kitchen drawers instead of cabinets, whether there is enough space for a kitchen island or not.

Maximize Your Modern Small Kitchen

Intentionally choosing the cabinetry in your modern small kitchen can provide you with valuable space-saving storage options, even in a compact kitchen. In a tight space it’s important to use every inch. For example, on all available wall space you can install a combination of traditional cabinets and open shelving for storing canned goods, pantry items, dishes, and glassware. You can use counter-base cabinets and a sink cabinet for pots, pans, and kitchen appliances.

If space permits, make use of empty floor space to outfit your modern small kitchen with an island and cabinets underneath. This will give you an extra work surface for food prep or for using cooking appliances like slow cookers and air fryers. Underneath the island, the built-in cabinets provide the shelving you need for your larger pots, pans, appliances, and other equipment.

Having your modern small kitchen cabinets professionally installed by space-saving experts lets you maximize the potential of even the smallest kitchen space, without having to give up any of your favorite kitchen essentials.

Even if your kitchen is smaller, you can still create a beautiful space. If you have a single wall kitchen, the kitchen work triangle would be one of the most useful guides, but it is not possible to follow if you have a single wall kitchen. Just remember to pay close attention to every measurement when configuring your kitchen workspace. Even a few inches can have a significant impact, especially if your kitchen is small. It is common for small kitchens to have a tight work triangle, little counter space, and little room for appliances. The next best thing to knocking down walls for your kitchen is to use a few creative decorating tricks to make it appear bigger. Depending on how streamlined your small kitchen needs to be, midcentury, modern, contemporary, or Scandinavian style furniture looks great in any kitchen, big or small.
