Kitchen Updates to Make a Small Kitchen Feel Big

For many homeowners, the kitchen is their favorite room in the home. Unfortunately, not all kitchens are up to the homeowners' standards and may be much smaller than the ideal kitchen size. If you have a small kitchen, do not panic. There are plenty of ways to make the space look bigger and less cluttered. Here are some kitchen updates you can do to make your small kitchen feel much bigger.

Add Color

Changing the color of your kitchen is a low-cost way to update your favorite room. This will make the space feel bigger and less cramped. Yellow and pale green colors create a welcoming and warm feeling while making the kitchen look better. Choose one of these two colors to make your kitchen feel brand new.

Add Geometric Patterns

Geometric patterns are on-trend and highly fashionable within interior design at the moment. Geometric patterns create the illusions of more space and the impression of a longer, taller kitchen. Be sure not to use too much pattern which can make a space feel overcrowded or too busy.

Add Mirrors

Mirrors are known to make a room feel more spacious and give the mirage of a larger space. Use mirrored backsplashes or mirrored cupboards to make your kitchen look double the size.

Built-in Pantry

A substantial improvement to a small kitchen is to add a built-in floor-to-ceiling pantry that will create storage space that you did not have before. This will create a more functional space and will last longer than portable cabinets.

Avoid Clutter

The minimalist look is extremely popular for creating more kitchen counter space and helps create the illusion of a bigger kitchen. Keep your kitchen surfaces clear and keep kitchen items in their designated storage space.
