The thing I like the best about these kitchens are the big roof windows which let lots of natural sunlight in the area, so cooking will be an enjoyable task when you have a well-lit space. The natural sunlight will make your kitchen appear more bright and airy at the same time.

Yup, attic kitchens require that you give up on the upper cabinets but don’t worry. You will probably have space to incorporate a kitchen island or other floor or wall cabinets which will give you plenty of storage room. Let me reveal a secret to you- kitchens with only bottom cabinets look more elegant and sophisticated!

You have to be extremely careful when taking measures for an attic kitchen. Make sure you plan everything in advance. Some attics don’t have enough lighting, while others have it in abundance. What’s your case? Plan to add extra lighting if needed because you can never have too much light in a kitchen!

The combination of black and wood has always been my favorite but honestly, I didn’t have the courage to go for it because my kitchen was tiny. Now that I see this black, small, attic kitchen I see that I was completely wrong. Black has the power to look stunning everywhere!

If you don’t have enough space for upper cabinets, you can always consider the option of inserting some open shelves which can hold your kitchen utensils in an outstanding fashion. Everything will be within the reach of the hand, so you can place things here that you use most often. In this way, they won’t get so dusty if used daily, if you were concerned about this. The shelves are great for displaying decorative items such as flowers, cook books, baskets, spices and so much more.

Another great thing about attic kitchens is that you can have a kitchen island which will provide you with some extra countertop working space and lots of storage. Isn’t that just amazing? Put it in the center of the kitchen in order to provide a balance for the area. You can use the island as a dining table too if there isn’t enough room for a dining table. Get some bar chairs and enjoy the beautiful setting.
