3 Top Kitchen Remodeling Tricks to Make Your Space Feel Bigger October 18, 2019

3 Top Kitchen Remodeling Tricks to Make Your Space Feel Bigger, ,

The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in any home. Even if you don’t have a ton of space to work with, there are design elements you can integrate to at least make the room feel a bit larger. If you’re planning a kitchen remodeling project, keep these tips in mind to ensure that your space looks as spacious as possible.

Make Your Kitchen Appear Larger With These Design Tips

1. Add Vertical Storage

Keeping a ton of items on your countertops will make your kitchen look tinier. Even if you don’t have the space for a ton of traditional cabinets, use tall storage for items you don’t use very often. You can also add toe kick drawers at your feet for small items that don’t fit elsewhere in your kitchen. These help you keep clutter out of view and make the space appear larger.

2. Include Reflective Materials

It’s important to have access to natural light and sufficient artificial light as well. Once those elements are in place, you can make the most of them by reflecting light around the entire space. Metallic pendant lights, stainless steel appliances, and glass-front cabinets can all go a long way toward achieving this look.

3. Remove Small Details

Tiny finishes like intricate countertop edges and cabinet hardware can create visual clutter. These elements might work fine in a large space, but if you want a small kitchen to appear larger, it’s best to stick with clean lines. Choose simple cabinets and countertops and keep all the finishes basic so there aren’t a ton of small elements fighting for attention.
