When you can’t physically expand your kitchen, there are ways to make it appear larger. And as we all know, it’s really the thought that counts.
So read along with these three terrific steps to make your kitchen feel spacious:
Let the light in
Add some mirrors
Get furniture that fits
Let the light in. Natural lighting is always more inviting, and can make your kitchen feel more open. However, if you aren’t in the mood to punch holes in your ceiling, you should take a look at your window dressings. Are they light weight, sheer? Or are they made out of sheet metal?
If you answered “yes” to the second, it might be a good idea to buy some new curtains (Or move out of your military bunker).
Add some mirrors. Mirrors can make a small space seem like a spacious hall. If you have extra wall space, adding mirrors to your kitchen will reflect light, and generally brighten it up.
Get furniture that fits. If you don’t have any children, you can probably throw out that wall-to-wall monstrosity that seats twenty, and get a smaller and more appropriate kitchen table for two. Smaller furniture equals larger space.
When you follow these steps, cooking in your (now spacious) kitchen becomes a lot less work and a lot more fun.
