10 ways to bigger kitchen
Glass cabinet doors
Replace solid cabinet doors with glass ones. An Incorporating glass is one of the simplest ways to magnify a kitchen. It lets you see through the objects and enhance your feeling of spaciousness. Use glass kitchen doors as well, or mirrors to lighten up space.
Use incandescent lighting underneath the upper cabinets shining down. Ceiling spotlighting directed at the cabinetry will raise the space shadowing. In recent years, floor lighting is very often used. Little spotlights glowing like starlight at night up from the floor.
Same colour of cabinets and walls
Paint your cabinet and kitchen walls with the same colour to erase visual boundaries. Don´t be afraid of using pale and dark colours as well. Chocolate walls will create the impression that they are farther than they really are.
Small footprint furnishing
Choose slim chairs, petite islands and narrow tables to boost the airy feeling. Avoid chunky furniture legs that add bulk.
Hide your cabinets or pantry from your sight and space. Orient your cabinet between the wall studs, save your space and have a creative storage area.
For roomier feel don´t use ornaments, heavy patterns and overcrowded cabinets. Stay in clean lines, simple and elegant patterns, elementary colours.
Solid kitchen doors divide space into smaller areas. If it´s necessary to use the doors, try glass one. But the best choice is to reduce any separation elements and create a larger space. A low half wall is a natural extension of the cooking place.
Use open shelves or floating shelves with brackets to boost the illusion of a more expansive area. Closed shelves in comparison lend a bulk and weight and, therefore, are not optimal solutions for any small space.
Choose patterns and visual elements that lend the impression of the higher walls. Vertical lines of the wall and ceiling boards are useful and appropriate for that optical illusion. On the contrary, horizontal lines and bold patterns such as dots or flowers narrow the place and make the kitchencozy, but smaller.
You can follow this simple safe rule – pale bright colour always enhances the space size. What you maybe didn´t know, a bold colour can also make the small place bigger. Try banana yellow backsplash, bloody red cabinet, or dark blue countertop for spacious and jazzed atmosphere.
