Contemporary kitchens are the single most popular kitchen design type right now. And these can be a stunning choice for kitchens of all sizes, including small kitchens.However, to get the most out of the design, and the space, there are a number of considerations to take into account. Here at MLS Kitchens, we are Manchester’s leading kitchen experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should consider when creating a small contemporary kitchen.

What are the important design considerations for small contemporary kitchens?

There are a number of design choices you can make when choosing your contemporary kitchen. But in a small space, you should consider:

  • The colour of your cabinets- dark kitchen cabinets will absorb some of the light from your kitchen. And in a small space, this can make your kitchen feel smaller. Opt for light colours like glossy white, cream and pale blues and greens. These will reflect the light instead, and help your kitchen feel brighter and lighter.
  • The amount of workspace- in a small kitchen, one of the biggest practical problems is the workspace. There often isn’t enough of it. So when planning your new contemporary kitchen, make sure you plan for continuous workspace. Workspace that isn’t interrupted by a sink, or appliances, is much more beneficial for food preparation.  You can even add in some slide out, or fold out workspace if that would be more beneficial. And thinking of this now, will help your kitchen be more practical.
  • The appliances- your new kitchen needs to contain all the necessary appliances. You need to plan the position and location of these appliances beforehand, so you can make sure that your kitchen really flows.
