It is also very trendy to paint the two opposite walls in one color and the other two in some other. This gives a good contrast to the walls and also looks elegant.
- Wall hangings
We always look for stylish wall hangings for the walls of our bedrooms and sitting rooms. One or two little wall hangings will look very well in your kitchen. If you do not want to make it look too congested, you can hang a key holder or a cutlery stand with the wall. This helps empty some shelf space as well.
- Small kitchen table and cutlery
A small kitchen may not be able to hold a large table but a small kitchen table or a couple of chairs would do well.
Kitchen table can be decorated with table mats. These mats look really good if they match the wall paint color. A small vase in the middle with fresh flowers will give a refreshing feeling when you sit for a cup of coffee after a tiring day!

IDEAS FOR SMALL OUTDOOR KITCHEN
- Make it clean and green
An outdoor kitchen will most probably be in your lawn. Make the grass of the lawn well trimmed and leveled. This gives a very nice impression to the guests.
- Keep some portion covered
Living in an area with high rainfall rate? Keep a portion of your kitchen covered. Set your kitchen table and chairs under the shade. If rain falls, you can enjoy the view sitting there with a cup of tea or coffee.
- Keep the direction of wind in mind!
In an outdoor kitchen, be very cautious while installing your stove if it is operated using gas. This helps you cook easily without the problem of getting fire extinguished due to wind every now and then. If you have a thermal cooking range then it is not a problem.
Outdoor kitchens let you do barbeque whenever you like because all the mess gets cleaned easily leaving your kitchen tidy and beautiful.
