Making Small Kitchens Feel Larger

You want to start a kitchen remodeling project, but you can’t add many square feet to the kitchen’s size.  Don’t despair!   There are lots of ways to make the most of the available space and ways to make the kitchen look and feel bigger than it is.  Remodeling a small kitchen does require careful planning.  Mistakes are more noticeable than in a big kitchen, so design elements need to work together.

If you’re considering remodeling your kitchen here are some ideas to keep in mind.

Storage Space- In a small kitchen you need to begin planning by thinking about how to store everything you need to have easily accessible.

Remove Walls- Opening up the space shared with a dining room or living room will make the kitchen feel bigger.  You can separate the spaces by installing a breakfast bar with stools.  If you can’t eliminate the wall altogether, you can create a pass-through window between the rooms.

Light Colors- Paint walls and cabinets in light colors to reflect the light. Floors and cabinets in a light wood or countertops in a lighter color- pallet also help make the room feel bigger.
