If you’re on a limited budget but still want to have the cooking space of your dreams, a small kitchen remodel might be just what you need. There is no need to demolish your tiny kitchen and start building it from the ground up when you can change a few things and make it look bigger and brighter.


Here are a few small kitchen renovation ideas to get your creative juices flowing.


Consider a Tile Backsplash in a Small Kitchen Remodel

Adding wide tiles in your small kitchen is one of the best options to make the small space pop and feel larger. You can use horizontal subway tiles to make the kitchen feel wider.


You can also consider opening up the kitchen area. If you are already going through a small kitchen remodel, you may consider removing the upper cabinets and adding open shelves instead. The open shelves visually increase the space and give your New England-style classic kitchen a modern touch.


Add Accent Lights

A tiny living space can look smaller and more crowded without proper lighting, and kitchens are no different. Adding accent or pendant lights over the kitchen island or underneath cabinets will open the space and make it look bigger. You will also increase the functionality of your kitchen and create a better ambiance.


Install Cabinet Door Glass inserts

Adding glass cabinet doors or replacing some cabinets with open shelving can make small kitchens seem like they have more space. For this trick to work, you need to keep the shelves clean and free of clutter to avoid making the kitchen space look messy.


If you want, you can also consider adding glass tile to visually increase the space with a simple, streamlined look.


Add Granite Countertops

Your small kitchen remodel project won’t be complete without new countertops. If you want to turn your kitchen and dining room into a welcoming and modern space, consider adding granite or quartz countertops.


By modernizing the countertops, you can turn your old kitchen design into a striking workspace for all of your cooking needs. Your new countertops will boost your home value and serve your family for years. 


Make the Most of a Galley Kitchen


While you can use many kitchen ideas for your home improvement project, it’s essential to know what fits your living space. A galley kitchen may feel crowded, but with the right design, you can fit everything you need and make it look good, too.


In some cases, a galley kitchen will actually help you add more counter space than you would have in other kitchen designs. It is the perfect solution for small kitchens as it increases the work and storage area and makes the space more functional.
