Architectural limitations can put an end to the most exquisite interior design projects if they do not take into account the unique circumstances of the building. As an example, a narrow or compact kitchen is a challenge in terms of space optimisation, since the traditional distribution of furniture and appliances can leave us without room to maneuver. Here, we will show you tips on how to make the most out of a narrow kitchen.
The first thing to solve is the question of lighting. If the kitchen has outside access, you will be able to install windows somewhat higher than the usual so that natural light floods the room with great ease. In this case, for obvious reasons of maneuverability, the window handles should be placed on the lower part of the panes rather than on the centre. If, on the other hand, the kitchen has no outside access, the most elegant solution is to place small pendant lamps, which keep the lights away from the main areas.
