For many kitchen remodels, adding on any more square footage is out of the question. The adjoining rooms need all of the space they started with, and a bump-out addition is either too costly or too difficult. In this case, we recommend that you take a few steps to make your kitchen appear to be roomier.
This can be one of the most overlooked parts of a kitchen remodeling job. But a bright kitchen can really open up a space, giving the illusion of a larger room. Plenty of recessed lighting overhead means the fixtures stay out of the way, though you might consider one hanging lighting fixture as a centerpiece for your kitchen or dining area. You may want to add in windows to get more natural light, and better ventilation as an added bonus.
We often recommend light-colored cabinets and walls for homeowners without a large budget to extend the space in their budget. Bright blues, yellow hues, and even solid white can make the space feel more open, especially if you remain consistent in your theme.
Knock Out Walls and Scale Back
It’s tough to say what you can do to make your kitchen appear larger without actually seeing the space in your home. Your local contractor can take a look at your kitchen and help you come up with a plan for the space and the décor. You might be able to knock out a full wall and turn it into a half wall that overlooks your living space to give the appearance of more room. It could be a good idea for you to scale back on appliance sizes or to build upwards with your cabinetry rather than out. The options are nearly limitless, even for your small space, so call a contractor today!
