How to Visually Expand the Look of Your Small Kitchen


In your house, the kitchen is one of the important places that need to be spacious and comfortable for cooking as well as moving around.


But, if you have a small kitchen then it is difficult to accommodate all the modern accessories within the limited space.


Therefore, while designing the kitchen, focus first on function, making sure you have the appliances and work areas you need.


Here are some useful tips that will help you visually expand the look of your Small Kitchen.


Focus on utility


You can easily save a bit of space by using innovative appliances, including refrigerator and freezer drawers and pint-sized microwaves, stoves and single sinks.


If you want your kitchen to go premium, consider a small-scale island or a counter-topped cart that can be rolled into a closet when not in use.


Since the area is small, you can easily afford to lay beautiful tumbled marble, which tends to be cold and hard underfoot, and has a good impact on the atmosphere.


Open cupboards


Small kitchens can feel clumsy and suffocated when the cabinets are towering overhead and the cook can't reach what's in them.


Get organized by keeping the top cupboards for open storage as well as consider shelving, pot racks, and magnetic knife or spice holders instead.


In this way, your kitchen will look more spacious and serve up display space for your favorite dishes, shiny pots, and pans, or artwork.


Make use of glass


One of the easiest ways to visually expand a kitchen is to incorporate glass into the suitable areas.


Like a glass counter or tabletop, tile, door cabinets or kitchen doors that lead to the outside or to the next room.


Also mirrors, when strategically placed around a room, or pass-through windows into the next room, also lighten up the look.


Efficient lighting


A small kitchen requires a combination of task and atmospheric lighting for a convenient atmosphere.


For that reason install pendant lights in the eating area, incandescent lighting underneath upper cabinets and incandescent spot lighting above cabinetry.


Lighting can also be installed under base cabinetry so that it shines down onto the toe plate.


Bold coloring


The color of walls, appliances, counters, stools and even the dishtowels can help to change the atmosphere and perceived the size of the kitchen.


Pastels or light colors, with good doses of white, reflect light and draw the eye up, making ceilings appear higher.


Bold coloration can be very effective in smaller kitchens as it creates a sophisticated feeling.


In the end In the end


Because your kitchen may be short on interesting architectural details, it's up to you to implement style by compelling surfaces, cabinetry, fixtures, flooring, lighting, and color.


And to ensure a united appearance, create a mix board with samples and swatches of materials under consideration as well as use accessories that emphasize that look.


Thank you!
