Making the Most of a Small Kitchen Space

When you have a small kitchen, you most likely want to make the space appear larger than it is. There are many ways that you can go about doing this. With these tips, make sure that your kitchen remodeling contractors knows that you’re trying to make the space appear larger. They can help you choose the best products and changes to meet your goal.

Use Lighter Colors

Lighter colors always give off the appearance of a larger room when they’re used. You can make the walls, the appliances and even the cabinets lighter colors. Just make sure to splash in some other colors when necessary. The backsplash, as well as the counters might have a darker color to them, but the rest of the room can still stand out and appear larger.

 

Consider Smaller Appliances

Smaller appliances can give the room more space. The same goes for any furniture that is used in the room. When it has more floor space, the room is going to appear larger. If there is only a small walkway, reducing the amount of clutter that is found throughout the kitchen is going to help with this and open it up a bit more.

 

Open the Room

If the room is closed off from the rest of the home, consider adding in a window, door to the outside or even knocking down a wall to make it larger. This not only gives the home an open floor plan appearance, but it can add to the square footage found inside the kitchen. Even if you just cut away half of the wall and add an opening into the other room, it will make the room appear much larger.
