I know that pretty much everybody on here would baulk at the concept of using black kitchen cabinet ideas for small kitchens, but I really really wanted that for our house. Well I am here to say that it really does not look bad even though the square footage of our kitchen is pretty low compared to others! Now, I still don't think that I would just jump to black if you are looking into tiny kitchen ideas, but if you have a moderately sized space, I think that it can actually look really sleek and awesome. I will say that you want to limit the rest of your decor just so it doesn't overwhelm the already bold design. Kitchen makeovers of this style need to be fairly understated or else it can go too far very quickly.
When it comes to kitchen cabinet ideas for small kitchens I almost always keep them white and shaker style. Why you may ask -- I do this because these two features allow a small kitchen design to veer traditional or contemporary all depending on what you pair with it. For example, this home when more contemporary with a metallic herringbone tile backsplash, industrial style pendant lights, and a lot of mixed metal accents. They could have easily leaned into the traditional side of things by doing marble countertops, subway tile backsplash, and some super elegant polished chrome light fixture. A great (and simple) foundation allows you to bring in just about any type of kitchen ideas you want.
I came across this home when I was looking for kitchen cabinet ideas for small kitchens for our townhouse, but now I am inspired to go a completely different direction with our decor. I have always been a fan of more traditional styles especially when it comes to kitchen remodel ideas, but I had never really thought of this more old world style decor. Between the vaulted ceilings with beautifully stained beams and the gorgeous details on the range hood, there are a lot of decorative elements in here that would make this room a centerpiece of the home and really drive the decor everywhere else. My favorite thing is probably how they took fairly standard kitchen cabinets and escalated them with the backsplash and range details.
I am seeing more and more similarities in the kitchen cabinet ideas for small kitchens on here, one of which is the shaker style cabinets done in white. I see why so many designers go with those two elements because they are simple yet still have some style to them. I hate it when people seem to think that just because you are doing a small kitchen remodel, you somehow need to decrease the style factor in your room. There is certainly no reason to sacrifice on style just because you have less square footage than most. You can still come up with amazing kitchen design ideas regardless of size, you just have to get more creative and more intentional with what you are doing.
I have seen the words "shaker style" brought up so many times on here when people are talking about kitchen cabinet ideas for small kitchens. I'll be honest, I had no idea what that really meant until I went ahead and googled it and found these photos. Now that I know, I am actually loving this style and even have switched around my kitchen remodel plans to use them rather than the more traditional style that I was going to before. I think that they have a nice almost contemporary look to them, but they still don't veer that far away from the traditional decor that we have used throughout the rest of our house. We had a lot of trouble coming up with a kitchen design for small space that did not feel as though it were lacking, but I am hoping that this will be the right one.
When it comes to kitchen cabinet ideas for small kitchens I like to keep everything simple and sleek, without much color or pattern to distract you. For that reason I often turn to contemporary kitchen design in these rooms because I find that it lends itself to more minimalist looks that maximize the space and and make it feel more open and spacious than it actually is. This home is a perfect example of how you can actually make smaller spaces work to your advantage by really leaning into the modern vibe. I think that this room is a fantastic portrayal of a lot of the trending small kitchen ideas 2020 all combined into a single unique space.
