Smart ideas to make your small kitchen look better/bigger

Everybody likes spacious homes. Don’t you? We are sure you do. But many a times, some homes have smaller kitchen. Is that the case in your home too? No worries. There are many hacks you can use to make your kitchen look bigger than what it is. Here are a few home improvement ideas as to how you can make your small kitchen appear bigger and better:

Paint it with a low contrast colour scheme – The best way to make the space look larger than it really is, use a colour scheme with low contrast to colour the cabinets, countertops, wood work etc. This gives a serene look to the kitchen and makes it look larger.

Use white – You can never go wrong with the colour white. So colour the walls in white. White reflects a lot of light making the kitchen look fresher. The walls recede and white accentuates the sense of space. The recessed panel cabinets and crown modeling form mild shadows which add an interesting aesthetic touch to your kitchen.

Use glass cabinet doors – Here’s a stylish idea for your cabinet doors. Remove the solid doors of the cabinet and replace them with glass doors. This makes the eye penetrate deeper into the cabinets than solid doors and gives an illusion of space. Thus walls feel as if they are father away. Make sure that the contents of the cabinet are well places, colour co-ordinated and clutter free or they will look crowded.

Use elongated patterns for the floor – One of the easiest ways to make the kitchen appear larger than it is to use geometric and striped walls and floors. This will make the kitchen look longer and taller. If you find it hard to change the floor, you can use a patterned runner which will give the same effect to the flooring.

Décor and light furnishings – The lighting and the stools in your kitchen are very important. To let the sight line more open, use backless tools, wire kitchen islands and glass pendant lights. As you move around your kitchen, these elements don’t trip upon your eyes and give the feeling of a seamless kitchen.

Use shiny surfaces – Shiny surfaces also make the kitchen look larger. Stainless steel appliances, SHINY floors, satin paint and glass tiles along with sleek cabinets add an illusion of space and look very stylish too.

Use sleek appliances – Try and buy appliances that are not too ornate and are minimalistic. This will make your kitchen look larger as these appliances will not make it look cluttered.

Consolidate your kitchen – Try and keep your cook top and oven in the same area to save upon valuable space. To make the work space clutter free, try and keep all small appliances stored in the pantry.

Mix and natural and ambient lighting– Use skylight which will open the window to more light and appear the ceiling look taller. This will expand the space visually. Use bay and greenhouse windows which will give you a feeling of the kitchen being larger and more open.

Well folks, use these ideas and see you kitchen look gorgeous and bigger.
