Small Kitchen Ideas from HTH



The trend towards down-sizing your living space is strong all over the world, as more and more people move into the cities where square meters are expensive. Along with that comes smaller kitchens, with more needs for smart and flexible solutions that take advantage of every available bit of space without making it look cramped or messy. Luckily, kitchen producers have caught on to this, like HTH for example, and there are now many ideas and products out there to help maximize a tiny kitchen. Here are some of my tips:

1. Utilize it: Make sure to take advantage of all available space, all the way from the floor to the ceiling, by installing drawers in the kickboards and using extra high cabinets that meet the ceiling instead of leaving unused space on top of wall cabinets that will only collect grease and dust. If you have some space left over the table or on another wall, put some open shelving up to add a personal touch and keep the room from getting to sterile.

Bonus tip: Keep the colours very light, like white or light gray, to avoid that your compact kitchen becomes visually overwhelming.





2. Roll It: WorkID is a worktop and storage on wheels that can easily be rolled around to wherever you need some extra space for cooking, working or dining, and then go back to its hidden space underneath the worktop.

Bonus tip: Hang your utensils on the wall to save room in the drawers.




3. Fold It: TableID is a wall mounted table big enough for two, that folds up to become a cabinet for tableware and other small items, and on the outside of the cabinet door; leather pocket storage that would be perfect for home office supplies that need to be cleared off the table before eating.

Ems Designblogg is all about Scandinavian style, soft minimalism and beautiful functionalism. The blog is Sweden's oldest interior design blog and has been up and running since 2005. I strive to fill it with a mix of inspirational and aspirational images from all over the world, while keeping true to my own voice and style, where transparency is key and creative criticism is highly valued. When I'm not blogging, I bake chocolate cakes for my kids, hang around Stockholm's cafés and drink way too many cappuccinos, do some occasional styling work, and try to fit in some inspiring travel adventures in between. If you have any suggestions, propositions for collaborations, other ideas or just want to say hi, throw an email at: [email protected].

    This looks gorgeous. I love this kind of style.
    And if you are afraid of buying art, because you don’t know exactly how the artwork will fit in your room download the Kooness App. This app, thanks to the augmented reality technology let you see a preview of the work on your wall.
