3 Secrets to Maximize Space
in a Small Kitchen
Featuring Optimistic Stone from the Urban Collection
It’s a challenge for anyone looking to conquer tight quarters in the busiest room of their home: making a small kitchen look and feel bigger. We went straight to Brooklyn-based designer Jennifer Morris of JMorris Design to see how she mastered this skill in her beautiful redesign of a Brownstone kitchen. Follow these three strategies to make the most of your space:
~ 1 ~
Organize your tall cabinets and appliances in one location.
This makes the other areas feel more open and airy.
~ 2 ~
Swap open shelves for cabinets.
Hiding stacks of dishes away behind doors keeps a clean and simple look.
~ 3 ~
Raise the upper cabinets and backsplash.
Moving a little higher than the standard 18 inches adds the illusion
of a taller ceiling and creates some extra room to work below.
Jennifer used a wide plank white oak floor by Carlisle to give lots of warmth and character to her clean design. The client was looking for a warm neutral palette and Optimistic Stone from our Urban Collection was the perfect choice. One of our most popular floors, it brought depth, color and personality into the space.

Our Urban Collection is perfect for unique open floorplans and loft living because of it’s interesting grain. Get sample of Jennifer’s pick:

Getting a new kitchen can make a huge difference in how you feel about your home. We spend so much time and do so much work in our kitchens. Carefully consider how this space can work for and with you and then invest in the design, the cabinetry, appliances, and fixtures. JMorris turned a space their client was sad about with a dishwasher that scraped the wall it was butted against, dated white appliances, and a floor that always felt dirty, into her dream space. We maximized the storage with smart planning, located fixtures that worked better for flow, and selected durable but gorgeous materials.
JMorris can reenvision any space, see how this dining nook transformed.
Before: Blah vanilla walls, an overscale swagging curtains, and heavy (literally) iron furniture cramps the space and style of this dining area.
AFTER: Wallpaper gives a color and texture that warms up the nook. Everything gets a lighter touch, from the faux fixed roman shades adds pattern and softness without overwhelming the window. A white stone table sits on a slim pedestal base. A Kelly Wearstler light fixture adds the finishing touch.
