How to make small kitchen look bigger?


Today I searched for small kitchen remodeling ideas and summarized the most useful and interesting tricks here.

1. Small Kitchen: storages to make your shelves clear

The less accessories you have in your kitchen – the better. I don’t mean that you need to throw them away, but you would definitely need several storage boxes.

Pay attention to their color and the shape.

– They should be big enough to place all your stuff in it.

–  Kitchen storages should be of the same color as the wall or a rug or and other item of your kitchen.

Why are you doing this? Because the more items you have the less space you see.

So as a result visually you will have much larger kitchen if you hide that you don’t need during the day.

Some designers advice to hang up pots and pans, but I wouldn’t advice this.

Yes, it is really convenient if you cook 24/7, but if you don’t than these pots will make a look of a mess.

Try to hide them and you will feel freedom in your own kitchen.

2. Small Kitchen: look for compact appliances

I borrowed this idea from small kitchen design ideas. Numerous brands already thought about convenience of cooking when space is tight.

You can start from basic arm’s reach appliances like coffee machines, blenders, toasters.

If you find a set of these, go and buy them. Sets are good not only because they look good, but because multicolored kitchen will look small.

Each color “eats” the space.

3. Kitchen Lightning: Lamps, Windows, Arts

Ok, now we are have storages and compact appliances. Now let’s get to lightning.

Usually the rooms look much small if they are too dark. So as a result you need to add more lamps to your small kitchen.

You can buy a table lamp and it will additionally create the atmosphere for chatting with your friends.

Don’t choose the bras, because they will take the space that you have on the floor. It would better to put a storage basket instead.

If you don’t want more lamps, change the curtains to lighter or windows to bigger.

But it is a bit complex choice for remodeling.

Finally, you can choose the wall decor that will enlarge the space.

4.  Small Kitchen: Buy Small Furniture and Tiles

Our eyes constantly compare something. For example, when you see a tall man, you say that he is tall because you compare him with other people. But what if he stands near the skyscraper?! This man would look small. I just want to say that small objects will make your kitchen look smaller.

5. Contrasting Colors

You can use two colors. One would be basic: white or beige and the second color can be your favourite: pink, red or green.
