How To Open Up The Space In A Tiny Kitchen


Unless you’re lucky enough to have a large kitchen space; you can often feel like you’re cooking in the galley of a ship, and are stuck in a claustrophobic environment. However, it’s a challenge to know what steps to take to make the space feel bigger, without spending a large chunk of your hard earned money on an extension, or moving property. The following are some tips and tricks to making your kitchen space feel a little bigger so that the time that you spend in there is as enjoyable as possible.

Colour

The deeper and darker the colours in your culinary space, the more closed in it will feel. Therefore try to ensure that the walls and ceiling areas of the room are in a light shade, or even white. You’d be amazed a what a fresh coat of paint in a radiant, neutral hue can do; calm and bright shades reflect any light that hits them, instead of absorbing it. The more light that’s bouncing around a room, the more spacious it will feel.

Consider replacing old, patterned tiles, with fresh new ones; tiles can be as much of a feature in your kitchen as you want them to be, so it’s worth putting thought into the size, shape, and colour of them, along with your choice of grout.

The colour of your kitchen cabinets will also impact the feeling of space in the room, especially those on the wall; think about replacing doors or painting them for a quick and easy update, which will ensure that you’ve opened up the space.

Light

As mentioned beforehand; the more light that can fill up your kitchen space, the roomier it will feel. Therefore, looking into companies like Buckingham Double Glazing will show you how much a larger window, or replacing the back door with floor to ceiling patio doors and windows, will allow light to flood the room. If you feel like the kitchen flows into your outside space with ease, the room will have had an immediate extension without any of the expensive building work.

During the evenings and nighttime, you’ll need t ensure that you’ve installed adequate lighting so that you can see what you’re preparing, and space is opened up successfully. Consider putting in lights under the kitchen cupboards on the wall, and even the floor, for a more spacious effect.

Storage

Ensuring that you have neat and adequate storage, in a minimalist design, in your kitchen, will make the decluttering process a lot easier. Clean, tidy, and uncluttered worksurfaces and countertops will immediately open up the room and give you a fresh environment to cook your meals. Therefore, you might just need to spend a little time to organise your shelves and cupboards, wiping surfaces, and getting rid of clutter, so that your kitchen gets a boost in size without the help of any builders.
