We all fantasize about having a large kitchen with high ceilings and plenty of natural light flowing in through massive windows. In reality, though, most of us make do with small, oddly shaped ones. But it doesn’t have to be so bad! In fact, with the right small-space solutions and stylish design ideas, it really does not matter what size your space is.

Add Kitchen dining table for breakfast- The classic marble top and french legs will not only brighten the area but also look at the price difference. The fantastic dupe, Have a look!

Add a Mirror – This rope nautical mirror will beautify your kitchen up in the most unexpected way. You can contrast the colors of the runners between cool white marble backsplash and matte black. The price difference was a shock for me.

Organize Strategically – If you’re adding shelves for storage, you don’t want them to look cluttered. Arrange bowls and mugs by color so everything feels cohesive.

Ditch the Hardware – On your cabinetry and drawers, avoid using clunky hardware. It will make your room appear more streamlined and elegant. It will also feel like a jewel box if you go neutral.

You know the drill- whiter=brighter. Keep everything white, then add in pops of color from your serving ware or cool pendant light that doesn’t take up too much space.

Embrace the Cozy – The smaller space, the cozier it is. Warm colors and gold fixtures will help you embrace it.

Have Fun With Wallpaper – You may not have a ton of counter and floor space to play with, so make a statement on your walls. If you don’t want it your wallpaper to feel too overpowering, use it as an accent instead of covering an entire wall. Use a fun gold and white wallpaper behind a smokey mirror backsplash—the perfect combo in a small kitchen.

Ensure the Breakfast Counter Flows – A lovely pass-through connects a kitchen and eating room. Not only does it brighten both rooms, but the countertop also provides a place to eat breakfast if you don’t have enough space in the kitchen for a nook.

Last but not least make sure to keep the decoration as neat as possible. Try these dupes, I believe that interior design decor should be affordable yet quality. We do hope you like this week’s dupes.
