Kitchen remodel design layout - 2018 best ideas and tricks (part two). Custom cabinets, walls, flooring...

As you may remember, in part one we have reviewed ideas for placing dinning area. Now let us talk about kitchen units!

Choosing kitchen units

The best option, which will take into account the features of the elongated kitchen during kitchen remodel, will be the manufacture of custom kitchen units, because typical headsets are usually made for standard layouts. Maximizing the use of a narrow space can be maximized by ordering open shelves (visually increase the space) or cabinets that will "stretch" to the ceiling - this solves the storage problem, when the least used utensils are put on the top shelves and the required one is placed lower.

Advice! It is desirable that the doors of cabinets in this case were made with transparent glasses, or can be semi-matt.

Custom cabinet doors, by the way, can open upwards - this will add the spirit of modernity to your kitchen, and nothing will interfere. In addition, the headset, made according to your requests, in the case of a narrow kitchen will make it possible to realize the most daring ideas: how about the sliding table tops and unfolding tables? You can use them both for food intake and for cooking.


The main task in the design of any narrow room is to visually "expand" it. You can achieve this by choosing light colors for the walls decoration, which can be covered with both wallpaper and paint. It is also desirable to make an apron in the tone of the walls or lighter.

Of course, it is better if the walls are monophonic, but you can choose wallpaper with a picture, in that case, the main thing is that it should be small. Another option is wallpaper with a panoramic image that will create a linear perspective and expand the space. It is better to not use dark wallpaper, and even more so, do not highlight the long wall with dark wallpaper, wallpaper with light fine drawings or a horizontal strip will do much better.

A darker shade is better to allocate narrow walls in order to balance the space.


As a coating for the floor is suitable for almost anything, you just need to choose the right pattern and correctly lay the cover.

Tiles should better be placed diagonally.

When choosing the color of the floor covering, it is important to keep in mind that it is better to choose either contrasting with the main color of the room or repeating it. For example, a dark color on the floor will make the narrow room visually higher, and light floors, similar in color with furniture, will add light.

Advice! It will be good to use a covering of rectangular elements, where the narrow side will be facing a long wall - so you can use, for example, a laminate.

That's it (at least, for today). Wait for next, final chapter about kithen ideas and tips!
