When it comes to remodeling your kitchen, space is both your number one priority and your number one constraint. While it’s easy to daydream about knocking down a wall or two and magically creating enough floor space for an island or a breakfast nook, the reality is that in many homes, this is simply not possible. Luckily, with the right home remodeling team, there are many creative and affordable solutions for giving your little kitchen a big makeover. Here are a few innovative small kitchen remodel ideas that won’t break the bank.

Add Sliding Storage

Innovative storage solutions, such as sliding storage, are much cheaper than completely overhauling your cabinetry and can really open up a small kitchen by freeing up counter space. Small kitchen remodel ideas like sliding spice racks, lid holders, and cleaning caddies can make organization a breeze. Look for underutilized spaces next to the fridge, above the stove, or corner cabinets.

Go for a Monochromatic Theme

We all know what a big difference color makes in our homes, especially in smaller rooms like the kitchen and bathroom. An amazingly simple way to transform such an area into a luxury space is to coordinate everything in a silver color. White is a typical choice, but hard to maintain. If you’re on a budget, it’s a good idea to let the color of your existing kitchen appliances dictate your overall scheme. If your appliances are chrome, consider painting your walls and cabinetry a single neutral color and embellishing with metallic accents wherever possible.

If there’s no room in your budget for a floor-to -ceiling paint job or brand new countertops, don’t worry. You can still add a strategic pop of color and reinvigorate your kitchen with new backsplash. A fun mosaic pattern looks intricate and expensive, while in reality, the tiles come prearranged in interlocking sections. You can feel free to express yourself with exciting designs and colors while the existing neutral palette of your kitchen keeps things in balance.

Consider Glass Front or No Front Cabinets

Cabinets are often front and center in many small kitchen remodel ideas. They are a necessary part of any functional kitchen, but they also cut out a great deal of area in the room. Reclaim some of that space visually by replacing or removing the doors on your cabinets. Glass fronted or open air cabinets give the illusion of a taller, more open kitchen.
