If you have a small kitchen and you want to make it look bigger than it normally is, you can. This article looks at three very important tips that can help in giving that small kitchen of yours the big look it needs and make it actually more spacious than it really is.
1. Use light colors: As hard as it seems to believe there are certain colors that help to give the visual impression of more space. And these are light colors. So, if you need to make your small kitchen appear bigger, use light colors instead of dark colors. Dark colors are said to reduce the size of a room or kitchen and are therefore not the best types to use when you want your kitchen to look bigger.
2. Use customized cabinets: Using customized cabinets help you save space in your kitchen more than if you had to buy and install just about any cabinet. By using customized ones you make them based on the space you have available. Customized in this sense means that they are made to fit the particular space in your kitchen and not the other way around. In this case they have to be made after the measurements of your kitchen are taken, so that they will be made really to fit.
3. Use customized furniture: Since you don’t have too much space in your kitchen, using customized furniture helps you save space. Such customized-furniture will be built mainly to take up particular space in the kitchen. With this also, the exact measurements of the space where they will be have to be taken and the furniture made to really fit into that space.
4. Maximize storage space: Ensure that every space is used in such a way that it serves dual function. For example, the bottom of the sink can be used as a spot for storing things. Since you don’t have a lot of space you shouldn’t waste any. Every space that is available will serve one purpose or another.
Do the above and you will be shocked to see your previously small kitchen now looking much bigger than it really is. And yes, it will then be able to take more things than it did before doing the above. And trust me – many of your friends who previously told you that your kitchen is too small will marvel at how big it now looks after you have done the above. And who knows – you might end up becoming a kind of “go to person” when it comes to making a small kitchen look big without necessarily increasing the space.
