10 ways to make a small kitchen seem larger

Feeling confined by the limits of your tiny kitchen? Well, we’re here to tell you that the limits do not exist! #No-human-is-limited

All you have to do to improve your tiny kitchen? Here are a 10 ways to maximize your space and make your kitchen feel a lot larger than it actually is — try them on for size.

1. Try some clear furniture.

If you absolutely need to put more stuff in your tiny space, consider going the acrylic route. You can get clear chairs, shelves, storage canisters, etc. They’ll give you what you need without adding visual clutter too. Now you see it, now you don’t!

2.Colors? Go monochromatic

It might be the oldest trick in the book, but the best way to make a cramped space appear larger is to keep everything the same color — experts usually recommend installing light-colored cabinetry and appliances. Dark colors can make rooms look smaller.

 The lighter tones seem to make kitchens seem more open and friendlier. You can also just opt for a low-contrast color scheme. This ties your kitchen together better, making it seem more open.

3. Make use of vertical storage.

In addition to giving you more storage space, vertical storage — whether it’s hanging from the wall or ceiling — helps to draw the eye, creating a feeling of more space.

4. Master of illusion with a mirror.

Illusion experts say that every tiny kitchen should have a mirror. JOKE, they do not, but they’d definitely agree that mirrors have the power to trick the eye, reflect light, and make things look larger than they actually are.

5. Buy things you want to be seen.

One remedy to little storage space is to invest in pieces that you don’t want to hide! Get that copper cookware set or the oven you've dreamed of for years. What this does is free up space in the cabinets creating space for other items .

6. But! be careful of clutter on your counter-top.

In addition to unnecessary appliances and accessories, kitchen counters can be magnets for clutter. The more stuff that sits on your counters — especially the stuff that doesn’t belong — the more crowded your kitchen is going to feel.

7. Well! Wash (and put away) your dishes — frequently!

 We don't mean to step on anyone's toes here but one very simple remedy for small kitchens is washing dishes! Get rid of those stacked dirty Sufurias (pots) in your sink and keep them in storage till you need to use them again

It will not only create some some virtual space but also give you peace of mind. 

8. Open storage, take the doors off a few cabinets.

Have you ever thought that your cabinets are making your space appear even more closed off? You officially have our permission to DIY an open shelving unit by taking the doors off a select few cabinets. Just be sure that whatever is inside is neat and organized!

9. Add a light or two under the cabinets.

Under-the-cabinet lighting is the best fix for a dark and cramped kitchen. There’s more than one way to get the same effect: Choose from puck lights, fluorescent light bars, or LED light bars to brighten up your space.
