Four Remodeling Design Tricks to Make Your Small Kitchen Seem Bigger


Obviously, if you had it your way, you would have a huge expansive kitchen with a ton of open space. Most of us would also want to take down a few walls in the process. But expanding your kitchen can come with a few expenses and might not always be an option financially. Sometimes it’s best suited to work with the existing charm and space. Here are some interior remodeling tricks to help spruce up your kitchen.

Optical Illusion 

The cumbersome part of having a small kitchen is the space being too inadequate to host a family get-together. When it comes to the overall design of your kitchen, using simple lines is the most resourceful tool to use. Stay away from larger crown moldings, corbels, or scones. These can often break up your kitchen concept and visually overcrowd the room. Instead, try to extend the cabinets to the ceiling and keep the cabinets modern and simple. The trick we are going for here is to make the eye look up. Use vertical lines in your designs measuring from the baseboards. This is a great way to add height to any room.

Similar Color Patterns

To keep the theme harmonious and the feng shui and energy and traffic of your kitchen flowing and ebbing. Design your cabinets and walls to be painted with the same tones. This will take away or erase visual boundaries or contrasting colors. Try to stick to lighter hues that are paler or even pastel, reflect light, and make the space to be more open.


Cleanliness is godliness. Keeping a chaotic countertop organized can sometimes be challenging for a mother. Recessed storage cannot only maximize counter space for cooking or meal preparation. If you can, tuck your pantry away with some custom shelving flush with the wall, as shown in the kitchen below—you’ll be surprised how much space you gain!

Open Shelving

Incorporating open shelving into your kitchen takes a broken-up space and gives it the illusion of a much more expansive space. Open shelving is a great way to keep the counter space open. You can use your open shelves now to display your favorite local art pieces or to store away everyday bills or office items.
