Tips to Make a Small Kitchen Look Larger
Small-space living doesn’t mean you can’t have a functional kitchen. Check out these simple design tricks that make your kitchen look and feel spacious without making any modifications to the original room size.
Light reflects off of white surfaces, making them appear larger. In small kitchens, you can use several shades of white on your cabinetry, countertops, walls, and ceiling to create a seamless space without defined edges. Contrasting textures also help soften an all-white room.
If you don’t have a lot of space in your kitchen, installing double French doors to the back of the room and setting up a bistro set or smaller tables on benches can make the room more spacious.
If you want to visually expand a small kitchen, install tile in a horizontal arrangement. Because the tile stretches from left to right, the space seems wider than it actually is. Open shelving and butcher block countertops mimic this look for cohesiveness.
To stay organized in a small kitchen, we recommend installing open shelving. An easy way to keep clutter off limited countertop space is with easy-to-access storage. Use a magnetic strip on your fridge to hold cutlery within reach of the prep space.
If you have a small kitchen, connect the backsplash and countertops for a seamless appearance. Using black and white granite for both allows your kitchen to look larger. A gray and white color scheme in this small space draws from the natural stone to prevent it from looking too busy.
