The L shaped kitchen is the most popular design in kitchen plans for a variety of reasons. The L shaped kitchen is perfect for multi-purpose flexible kitchens of today. There are several ways to remodel small L shaped kitchen. And today, we will give you some of them. First of all, search for extra space you might use. Expand counter space to continue along one wall. Borrow a couple of feet of floor space from an adjoining room, if possible. Carve out space from a broom closet, back porch or underneath a staircase. Build an island in the center of the L shape, if you have enough walking space on the perimeter walls. Install floor-to-ceiling kitchen cabinets on one of the walls forming the L-shape; you might have to do away with counter space to accomplish this. Buy or build an island that will hold pots and pans underneath.
Refinish existing cabinets in a lighter color to make the small L shaped kitchen seem bigger. Leave some of your cabinets in varnished wood or wood material for a nice contrast. Choose lighting that brings focus to the new island area. Keep the lighting fixtures or track lighting on the understated side, so the lighting does not overwhelm your small kitchen. Redo the kitchen floor to add a new, clean feeling. Choose new vinyl flooring in white with a small amount of accent color to make the kitchen seem bigger. Use leftover vinyl to line old cabinets under the sink for easy cleaning. Use vinyl to line old drawers or old cabinet shelves as well.
