A kitchen tends to have high traffic flow especially when two cooks like you and your husband are working together. A lot of space is required for a perfect traffic flow. And, when your kitchen happens to be small, you’re going to need to tap into all available space in order to avoid the traffic jams or even accident. In this post, I’ve summed up 10 modern small kitchen makeover ideas that will make your tiny kitchen become more organized so you will feel comfort and ease of mind when you have to slave over your hot stove. As I already mentioned on my last post, this list is brought to you by simphome.com
10. Kitchen Pantry Makeover
Cramming cereal boxes and snacks in your pantry, and you can’t find them easily when you need them? We have same problem.
First, you don’t have to add more shelves or craft something that will challenge your carpentry skills. All you need to do is getting some glass containers, dividers, vintage jars, canisters, and wire door organizers. You can try collect those things from any craft store near you.
The clear glass containers and canisters allow you to store pasta, nuts, rice, or even Choco chips. They will color up your pantry too. For huge and bulky stuff like bags of snack and cereal, some woven baskets are your greatest bet. They will keep your bags organized at the bottom of your pantry.
9. White Kitchen Remodeling idea
One of the best ways to freshen up your mood is by refurbishing your kitchen either partially or completely. You can do it by painting your kitchen wall and cabinets or just changing your curtains. Anything that can provide a new look to your kitchen will do.
This kitchen looks for example become fresher with white hues. The old brown cabinets have been replaced with the all-white cabinets. A glass door cabinet give everyone clear-view what’s inside and enough spaces for some crystal glasses, platers, cups, jars, and mugs.
For the flooring, the author chose vinyl floors. It works great for damp or wet area and if you want to follow this idea, you can install it by yourself.
YouTube it or google anyone near you with professional title in this field if you doubt with your own skill. They are already waiting your call.
8. Rustic Small Kitchen Remodel Ideas
When it comes to an undersized kitchen, white hues and abundance of glass windows are what you can rely on. White hues have always made a small room appear to be larger. And when teaming up with plenty of natural lights, white tone can convert your dank kitchen into an airier one.
First, replace your old cabinets and countertops because they are what will come to your sight first. If you have more bucks to renovate your kitchen, try having tongue-and-grove paneling for your wall to get a farmhouse look. If that style is your thing.
Want to have some more rustic look? Change your kitchen sink’s faucets, install swing arm sconces that hold fluorescent lamps, and lay a jute rug on the floor to indulge your feet.
7. Modern Kitchen Remodel idea
Less is more. That’s what modern kitchen all about. The less furniture you use “without weakening its function”, the better. And – of course – sleek and minimalist design is the key.
First, ditch those big and bulky upper cabinets and invest in some open shelves. Open shelves are kind of on trend now. They will give you minimalist look that you have been longing for as well as keeping your kitchen organized.
Second, Going bold? Why not? Although white kitchen is more preferable for a small kitchen, there’s nothing wrong to go on different direction. Black matte teaming up with sleek white wall can perk your kitchen up to a new level and this is a little idea you can try.
Tip: Although minimalist concept dictates you to live less, don’t give your kitchen zero adornments. Some planters would be nice. And to kick it up a notch, hang some pendant lights over the worktop.
6. Cottage Kitchen Idea
White always looks good in any kinds of kitchens including this cottage kitchen. The most conspicuous – and fabulous – thing in this kitchen is the hexagonal wall-tiles. They add more patterns to the kitchen which makes it look cooler and more authentic.
The glass door cabinet is also a clever. It keeps platers and knick-knacks under supervision. And you can find what you are looking for easily without opening the door.
Lastly, a yellow decorative light and a pink planter box on the center of kitchen table steals attention most people visited this area for the first time.
5. Vintage Kitchen Remodel Idea
The combination of furniture derived from the previous era and the use of pops of colors highlights the vintage style of this kitchen.
Instead of using marble, butcher-block counter top is chosen because it complements the wood flooring beautifully. The white cabinets and open shelves conceal flaws of the exposed brick chimney perfectly and that should give you a design inspiration.
Blue and teal hues color combination absorbed from pots and accessories in the kitchen perks the kitchen’s look up without making it look exaggerated.
4. Grey Kitchen Cabinets
When stepping into this kitchen, flowery tiles will welcome you with minor psychedelic effect that will stay in your brain for a while.
A functional white and gold pendant light installed as distraction. And it comes with knobs and faucets with similar color pattern. Cabinets come in gray color and I have to be honest it complements all elements used in this area well.

3 Creative bed design ideas for a small bedroom2
00:00:04,760 --> 00:00:08,320
1.Ceiling Storage For Bed3
00:00:08,320 --> 00:00:10,840
Most are familiar with the Murphy bed,4
00:00:10,840 --> 00:00:12,370
which allows users to fold it against the wall when5
00:00:12,370 --> 00:00:14,540
it is not in use.6
00:00:14,540 --> 00:00:17,200
While this most definitely saves space,7
00:00:17,200 --> 00:00:19,420
having your bed on the ceiling will give you the8
00:00:19,420 --> 00:00:22,200
maximum amount of square footage of your room.9
00:00:23,540 --> 00:00:26,380
Though its origins are from a French manufacturer,10
00:00:26,380 --> 00:00:28,740
the idea in place is essentially a pulley11
00:00:28,740 --> 00:00:30,820
system for the mattress and frame.12
00:00:32,000 --> 00:00:34,560
Do not be intimidated by the notion,13
00:00:34,560 --> 00:00:37,680
as installation isn't nearly as complicated as it sounds,14
00:00:38,060 --> 00:00:41,260
with Ikea now dipping its toes into this forum.15
00:00:41,860 --> 00:00:42,800
00:00:43,340 --> 00:00:45,340
If you decide this route is for you,17
00:00:45,340 --> 00:00:47,900
use a preexisting frame by BedUp18
00:00:47,900 --> 00:00:49,800
(or a similar competitor)19
00:00:49,800 --> 00:00:51,860
that raises and lowers the mattress20
00:00:51,860 --> 00:00:53,920
but still gives you the freedom to determine21
00:00:53,920 --> 00:00:55,520
00:00:56,020 --> 00:00:59,320
2. Compact Living Style Storage Bed23

by Yesul Jang24
00:01:01,080 --> 00:01:03,860
Graduate Yesul Jang was the original mind25
00:01:03,860 --> 00:01:05,720
behind the millennial bed that is raised to26
00:01:05,720 --> 00:01:08,680
waist level so items like dorm room accessories27
00:01:08,680 --> 00:01:10,760
can all fit underneath,28
00:01:10,760 --> 00:01:11,960
as sort of a makeshift29
00:01:11,960 --> 00:01:13,880
bunk bed of practicality.30
00:01:14,460 --> 00:01:15,600
00:01:15,600 --> 00:01:17,760
a fabric curtain can cover your belongings32
00:01:17,760 --> 00:01:18,740
so that they are not in view at33
00:01:18,740 --> 00:01:20,120
00:01:20,120 --> 00:01:22,420
In using such a curtain, they are cheap35
00:01:22,420 --> 00:01:25,100
and quick to replace if they incur damage.36
00:01:25,940 --> 00:01:28,900
Because statistically sleeping space and storage37
00:01:28,900 --> 00:01:30,900
take up the most real estate in a dwelling,38
00:01:31,280 --> 00:01:33,640
it is a natural blend to pair them in the39
00:01:33,640 --> 00:01:35,300
same square footage.40
00:01:36,020 --> 00:01:39,820
3. A DIY Hidden Roll Out Bed41
00:01:39,820 --> 00:01:42,560
Rearranging furniture is enough to give anyone42
00:01:42,560 --> 00:01:44,980
a headache, and never is this more true than43
00:01:45,160 --> 00:01:47,460
00:01:47,460 --> 00:01:50,340
Their cumbersome size and stature will45
00:01:50,340 --> 00:01:52,180
make you tear your hair out,46
00:01:52,180 --> 00:01:54,520
but fresh ideas have come to fruition47
00:01:54,520 --> 00:01:56,160
on how to make hiding them48
00:01:56,160 --> 00:01:58,020
00:01:58,020 --> 00:02:00,780
One such solution is an accordion style panel50
00:02:00,780 --> 00:02:02,770
of wooden strips that are each connected by51
00:02:02,770 --> 00:02:05,060
hinges on both ends.52
00:02:05,060 --> 00:02:07,800
In essence, the platform folds into a drawer,53
00:02:07,800 --> 00:02:10,600
with one piece of wood folding on top of another54
00:02:10,760 --> 00:02:13,040
as if you are stacking them.55
00:02:13,040 --> 00:02:14,980
When the drawer is pulled out,56
00:02:14,980 --> 00:02:16,820
the wooden frame of the bed pulls flat,57
00:02:16,820 --> 00:02:18,280
with the hinges flush.58
00:02:18,280 --> 00:02:20,700
making a level surface for the mattress.

Capable of taking up an entire wall,26

the system utilizes wooden wedges27
00:01:12,200 --> 00:01:13,460
to keep shelves from28
00:01:13,460 --> 00:01:14,980
00:01:14,980 --> 00:01:17,400
Rounded steel uprights connect to the shelves30

known as 'Shift.'42
00:01:54,540 --> 00:01:57,220
The idea behind its foundation is derived43
00:01:57,220 --> 00:01:59,700
from retail outlets, who are in frequent need44
00:01:59,700 --> 00:02:02,060
