There are so many ways to liven up your small kitchen and transform it into a cheerful and cosy space. After all, it’s the heart of your home, so it needs to look personalised, warm, and presentable for family and guests.

“It’s not just building materials and architectural design that make a small kitchen work. A good design should reflect the personality and character of the homeowner in color and lifestyle design,” says Tara McLellan, author of Small Spaces, Beautiful Kitchens. “Here’s your opportunity to make your small space whatever you want it to be. Don’t limit yourself. Don’t think of your small kitchen as a cramped eyesore.”

Here are some decorating ideas for a small yet stellar kitchen:


1. Accessorise. Top up your small kitchen with quirky or sentimental accessories like beautiful dishware, framed still photos, and colourful blooms.


2. Showcase an artwork. Got a blank vertical space in your kitchen? Spruce it up with your favourite portrait or painting.


3. Use bold and patterned fabric. Why settle for a blah and plain-looking Roman shade or curtain when you can select a brightly printed one? Complement your window covering with equally bright accents.

4. Display your collection. Allocate a portion of your kitchen shelving to your personal collections. This will make your kitchen more intimate and homey.


5. Bring out the colours. Open shelving gives you the opportunity to display colourful and vibrant dinnerware.


6. Paint your kitchen wall. Score a statement-making and stylish kitchen by giving your kitchen wall a charming colour.


7. Go for a wall decal. Not too keen on painting your kitchen wall? Opt for a bold wall decal that gives your kitchen a more fun personality.


8. Add backsplash. Give your kitchen a lot of oomph with a striking and stylish backsplash.
