When it comes to kitchen remodeling, many homeowners feel limited by the space they have. Small kitchens can feel cramped and cluttered, making them less than ideal for entertaining or hosting family meals. Fortunately, there are some creative and simple ways to make small kitchens look and feel bigger without having to break the bank. At Envision Remodeling, we’ve got plenty of ideas that will give your kitchen a spacious and updated look.
The first thing you should consider when looking to make a small kitchen appear bigger is color selection. The right colors can open up a room and create an airy atmosphere. Light colors are always a great choice for small kitchens because they reflect light, making the area appear larger. For walls, consider shades of white, gray or beige. You can also add accents of bolder colors as well.
Another great way to make a small kitchen seem bigger is by replacing bulky cabinetry with open shelving. Open shelving creates an illusion of more space while still providing ample storage options. It also helps keep clutter at bay which is key in any small space. To maximize the effect, opt for glass doors on upper cabinets instead of solid ones so that you don’t block out any natural light coming into the room.
Installing a large single-basin sink can also help give your kitchen more visual appeal while creating the illusion of more space. With one oversized sink instead of two smaller ones, you’ll free up counter space while taking up less visual real estate in your kitchen.
Adding mirrored accents throughout your kitchen is another great trick to make it appear bigger than it actually is. Mirrors reflect light and brighten dark spaces which can really help expand the appearance of your kitchen and make it look larger than life!
Finally, try rearranging furniture if possible to create clearance between items and ensure that everything has its own spot in order to avoid overcrowding the room. This will give your kitchen an orderly look and let people move around freely without feeling cramped or crowded in the space.
