How To Make Your Small Kitchen Look Bigger & Brighter

When you live in a box-sized apartment and pay half your salary for it – every nook and corner counts. Living in a limited space brings many challenges but a small house doesn’t mean you can’t live large.

It makes sense to ignore expensive décor or luxury furniture when your bedroom is barely big enough to fit your bed and your kitchen is only big enough to accommodate one person.

But does that mean you should live in cramped clutter? We say, not at all.

Scroll down to see some tried and tested tricks that will turn your tiny kitchen into a chic space where you can cook, eat, and relax.

1. Paint it white

White paint, complemented with warm grey or earthy tones, is the best combo to give an impression of space.

If you want to take it a notch-up, try playing with different shades of white on cabinetry, countertops, walls, and the ceiling, This colour scheme will create a seamless space without edges or boundaries.

2. Go for sleeker appliances

Whenever you buy anything for your kitchen, your approach should be to think verticle instead of horizontal. There are many high-efficiency appliances that allow people with small kitchens to have the same ease of use.

Plus point: sleeker appliances are way easier to move around than the bulky ones.

3. Replace wooden doors with glass doors

It’s tiny, it’s classic, and it belongs to a chic 700 square foot box home — proving that small spaces don’t have to be crowded. Adding glass doors to cabinets instead of wood is one way to reflect the light and add more space to the room.

This also means everyone can see your cabinets so you better make sure they're clean and coordinated, all the time.

4. Keep personal touches to minimum.

Adding a personal flair with collectables sounds great but the truth is, you don't have the required space.

Crowded countertops, clutter cabinets and cramped workspace can overwhelm even the best kitchen designs. Take a minimalist approach and only keep what brings you joy or is absolutely essential. The rest can go in your memory card box, at least for now.

5. Borrow some space

Not every micro kitchen needs a modern design in order to work. Sometimes, a little space shuffling can create a spacious effect.

Add a part of the living room or any adjoining into the kitchen by opting for flat-countertops with dining tables. It won't increase the square footage of the kitchen, but it can vastly enlarge the sense of space, bringing in more light and a feeling of openness.
