Make Your Tiny Kitchen Look Bigger

There are three key factors to making a tiny kitchen seem bigger. Keep the following in mind:


Lighting
Bright spaces look and feel larger than dark ones, so make sure the kitchen is well-lit. Paint it over with light colors. Light colors -- of which white is the best choice -- reflect and therefore amplify the light, while dark colors absorb it. Objects that reflect light will also help you achieve the desired effect. Use shiny or reflective surfaces, like stainless steel, polished metal, or varnished wood. Keep them clean and gleaming at all times. 

Clutter
Less clutter means more space. But clutter isn't just physical -- it's also visual. It's important to keep as many objects as you can out of sight. Maximize space inside cupboards and drawers so you can store all your cooking and eating utensils away, creating more surface space and eliminating visual clutter in your kitchen. This is also applicable to the interior decor. Steer clear of heavily decorated wallpaper and ornate furnishings. Opt for a minimalist design.

Depth
A room without depth will seem flat, boring, and small. You can create depth by using accent colors and installing trim around your cupboards, windows, and door. Opt for dynamic lines, curves, and circles in your decor to create the illusion of movement and softer edges; sticking to straight lines will make you feel like you’re trapped in a box. You can also use artwork and countertop decorations, such as flowers, to liven up the space.
