Admit it. You have been dreaming about getting a bigger kitchen. You have even measured your kitchen, and you are convinced that it is not possible to get a bigger one. But you are wrong! It is possible to have a small kitchen remodel and make your kitchen look bigger than its measurements would suggest.


Here are some ideas that will help you achieve your goal.

1. White Cabinets

If you want your kitchen to look spacious and clean, you can choose white cabinets for your kitchen. They are an ideal choice for maximizing space and making the area look larger than it is. You can even create the illusion of a bigger space by keeping all the cabinets clean without any extra decorations or accessories; a simple, clean white surface will do.

2. Light Colored Floors

Light-colored floors such as wooden floors or light tiles will help enhance the sense of space in your compact kitchen and make it look brighter. Conversely, dark colors tend to make spaces look smaller, so if you want to make your kitchen appear bigger, you can choose lighter colors for the flooring.

3. Remove walls and other barriers to create open floor plans.

Demolishing a wall between the kitchen and another room is one of the easiest ways to make a small kitchen feel larger. A great way to do this is by removing the wall that separates the kitchen from the dining room or family room. Removing it creates an open floor plan and increases the amount of natural light entering the space because there are no longer exterior walls to block sunlight.

4. Install mirrors strategically around the room to increase light and create more space visually.

A little trick of the trade is strategically positioning mirrors in your kitchen. Mirrors not only make the room look bigger, but they also reflect light, which makes a room appear brighter and more open.

5. Install open shelves.

They are an easy way to make any room look spacious. They provide additional storage for appliances and cookbooks while leaving more floor space free, making it look like there’s more room in the kitchen. Install them on every available wall — over breakfast nooks, behind sofas, along pantry walls, and even near dining areas — and you’ll have plenty of extra space for everything you need.

6. Replace wooden door cabinets with glass

Kitchen cabinets can seem like a massive obstruction to the kitchen. When you want to open them, you lose all sense of the space behind them, and it feels like you are starting over from scratch.


Simple small kitchen remodel ideas

Small kitchen layouts often force us to find more creative ways to deal with them. One of those solutions is to replace the cabinet doors with glass paneling instead of wood.

Glass paneling also has a way of making us feel like we have more of a view. Even if there’s nothing but the wall outside, the light shining through looks much brighter and cleaner than normal light coming through wood paneling.

Glass also makes it easier to see what’s inside cabinets without having to open them, which can help people organize better and be inspired by what they have got inside.

To make it bigger, you can implement the unique ideas above for your small kitchen renovation. First, make notes of your favorites, then discuss these options with a kitchen designer or contractor before making your design choices. We are sure that together you will find a solution that fits all your needs and your budget.
