5 Tips For Making Your Kitchen Feel Larger

1. Be strategic about the colors you choose in your kitchen.

Yes, it's true. Colors can affect the way you feel in a room. Darker colors can make a room feel smaller and lighter colors can make a room feel larger! Brighten up your kitchen and give it a sense of space by painting the walls a lighter color, such as white, lighter tans, or lighter grays. This can be a great way to make your kitchen feel larger WITHOUT "breaking the bank."

2. Don't underestimate the power of see-through items.

Try open shelves or cabinets and a floating island in your kitchen. "See-through" items like these can give your kitchen a larger and more open-like feel.

3. Try installing accent lighting around your cabinets.

Again, darker colors mean a cramped feeling. This includes shadows. To off-set that feeling try some accent lighting around your cabinets, where shadows can be most common.

4. Single sinks take up less space compared to double sinks!

Opt for a farmhouse sink over a double sink. You can save on counter space! Also, you can add some style to your kitchen by choosing a farmhouse sink. These are typically white, as we mentioned earlier, the lighter the colors, the better! 

5. The more natural light, the better!

Light gives you a sense of space. So, try adding a window in your kitchen, if you don't already have a fairly large one in there. If you do already have a window in your kitchen, then draw more attention to the natural light by getting rid of the heavy curtains and bringing in some lighter curtains, such as sheer curtains.
