For your benchtops, opt for natural textures. You may want to use marble, granite, polished timber, or poured concrete. Choose the one that suits the theme and color of your kitchen. But you can create your own benchtop by applying thick edges to a thin slab. Let it blend with the kitchen and get the kind of look you want. Make sure also that the edges are smooth.
For sure, one needs to be creative in order to have enough storage places in the small kitchen. Storage is very important to keep your kitchen free of clutter. But aside from that, there are still other things that can help make your small kitchen look larger. The manner of using your kitchen can tell you the kind of layout you would need especially if your area is small. You have to make sure that function and usage will be given attention first before the design. After that, take note of your own design style including color and accents in the kitchen.
Since the kitchen is used primarily for meal preparation, you have to make sure you have all the appliances you need like refrigerator, microwave, range and others. But see to it that they are well placed. Do not use too large appliances for it can only occupy a large space when a smaller version of it can also function the same. For your work area, you can consider a small scale island or counter-topped cart that can be rolled away when not used.
