A lot of people are amazed when they walk into a home and notice a large, spacious kitchen. Let’s be honest though; most of us don’t have the money to start a kitchen renovation and extend the area. Luckily, when it comes to having a small kitchen, there are things you can do to make it appear bigger. We here at iRemodel Home Renovations will explain what those tips and tricks are below.
This space should adapt to any activity that needs to be done there, including prep, cleaning, cooking and entertaining. A good example to make your kitchen look more flexible is by putting down a long table that can also be used as an island. This takes advantage of the limited space you have by giving this area multiple purposes. If you want to take it a step further, purchasing or building seating with extra storage for kitchen equipment/food will minimize the space needed to put said equipment/food on surfaces such as counters and tables.
Colour Is Important
The proper use of colour can go a long way when making your kitchen area look bigger than it actually is. The best way to go about colouring your kitchen is by implementing a colour scheme that is more mild, with occasional vibrant pops of colour. In most cases, softer colours give the impression of a larger space area. When you use bright colours to accentuate a certain part of the kitchen, it creates a focal point that makes the kitchen stand out.
Let The Light In!
When you have a lot of large panel windows in your kitchen, the natural light will make your space look much roomier and stylish. Artificial light can often appear to close in your kitchen, making it look cramped and dull. A great idea to make your kitchen look bigger is by installing spotlights under your cabinets, illuminating the counter space beneath. This gets rid of any dark spaces in your kitchen, making for a space that looks much more comfortable.
