Tiny Kitchens , Small Kitchens and Kitchens In-Between
One of the most sought-after qualities in the home is space. The ability to neatly store the belongings that seem to accumulate as a family grows and time passes is important enough in itself. Added benefits include plenty of room to move around throughout the busy day as well as a plethora of surface area which can be put to use to express yourself and your loved ones. After all, home design is one of our ways of making a lasting impression on the space that serves as our base of operations every day and often years on end. But the unfortunate reality of the situation is that the homes we can afford, especially in the Auckland housing market, can’t often enjoy the luxury of abundant space – and especially not a spacious kitchen. So if you are the proud owner of a tiny kitchen,a small kitchenor just any kitchen that may seem more difficult to effectively put to use, make sure you consider us to help your kitchen dreams become a reality, no matter how small the space you have to work with.
Classic Tiny KitchenSolutions
There are many opportunities in a small kitchento maximise the space, getting the most quality function out of it while still reducing the negative effects of the “tiny” factor as much as possible.
Concealing the most obstructive kitchen elements: If you can feature your appliances and workspaces on one wall exclusively, you have an immediate tiny kitchenbombshell in the making. Installing a full-length set of sliding, folding or otherwise space-conscious doors can reveal or conceal your kitchen amenities in an instant. This can be a particularly effective trick if your kitchen opens out to the leisure or living space of the home (which is so often the case in apartments that are saddled with a smaller kitchen!).
BONUS: Another way to introduce the concealment concept is to hide your dining table! Instead of a table that takes up half your tiny kitchen, perhaps go for a table that can be folded up and hooked on the wall. You can even decorate the side that faces the room when not in use with artwork or wallpaper!
Stainless steel: It’s common knowledge that light colours can lighten and open a space, reflecting light rather than sucking up and absorbing it. Take it to the next level with miles of chic stainless steel finishing in your little kitchen. The metal gives a pristine feel and the reflectiveness maximises the light and openness of the room.
Think small: Tiny appliances are the perfect complement to a tiny kitchen! You can find kitchen items that are essentially about 80% of the size of their standard counterparts in any typical kitchen or home decoration store. While it might seem too simple to really be so effective, you’d be surprised how much bigger your kitchen looks when it’s furnished with a complementary sized set of equipment. BONUS: they also take up less space!

Bigger doesn't always equal better: The fact that your kitchen is tiny is surprisingly one of your biggest advantages! You get to make the most of the fact that the surface area and square footage you have to work with is SO SMALL that you use hardly any materials at all. In fact, your kitchen renovation project is probably going to cost less than half of your mates’ in material costs. Take advantage of the extra bucks to invest in that really nice but expensive finish you like. Shop in the off-cuts bin for your countertops and tiling. In fact, you can probably get away with $5 sample paint pots rather than forking out the cash on full size pots!
