Design for small kitchen on a budget
Not ready for a whole new kitchen? Improve the one you have with any of these products, projects, and solutions.
Add an Island
An island adds work space, storage, and seating - a perfect solution for a small kitchen.
Swap out the Sink
A sleek stainless-steel sink (#170953) and a shapely single-handle faucet (#5365) make a handsome yet hardworking pair. The faucet’s high-arc spout swivels 360 degrees and the pull-down spray eases rinsing.
Add a Hood
A kitchen needs a focal point - an element that catches your eye when you walk in. Here, it’s the striking canopy-style range hood (#75016), which pops out against the mushroom-color wall.
Cut countertop clutter by storing items in a simple DIY basket for about . Use a bowl or terra-cotta pot as a form, and spiral 40-50 feet of braided rope around it into a basket shape. Lay each successive coil atop the previous one and secure layers with a glue gun.
Dress up Cabinets
To convey custom style on a modest budget, dress up economical stock cabinets with simple mouldings and sleek hardware.
Stylish Storage Options
Mouldings added to stock upper cabinets not only create a custom design, but also provide cover for under cabinet puck lighting and electrical outlets.
A counter-depth refrigerator (#486058) has a clean profile and saves space in a small kitchen. Frame it with panels to mimic the look of a pricier built-in model.
Switch up Lighting
Trade that single ceiling-mounted fixture for more stylish and targeted kitchen lighting. Illuminate an island with the retro-contemporary style of this nickel-finish mini pendant (#351053).
DIY Wine Rack
Add a splash of color to your kitchen counter with a wine rack. Cut the frame pieces from square dowels, secure with glue and screws, and then spray-paint.
