We aren’t all lucky enough to have a massive kitchen. There are plenty of ways to maximize the space of an inadequately sized kitchen. Here are a few tips that’ll make you realize how much space you actually have!
If you are completely redoing your kitchen, consider extending your cabinetry upward! Extending your cabinets close to, or all the way, to the ceiling will double your storage. The less accessible cabinet spaces are a great space for your less used formal dishware or bulk goods.
Keep the space bright
The biggest mistake a homeowner can do is choose dark tones for a small space. Keep smaller kitchens with light or white woods. This will make the space feel more open and happier.
Adding hooks, racks, or tiny shelves in the inside of your cabinet doors can almost double your storage capacity by utilizing all the vertical space. This is great for spices, mugs and towels. Take ideas from Tiny Homes. The amazing thing about tiny houses is that they incorporate every square inch of the space for storage. While your kitchen may be a bit bigger than a tiny home, it never hurts to snag a few ideas!
Glass and mirrored cabinets
Whether open cabinets, glass, or mirrored cabinets are your cup of tea, they are all great additions to making your kitchen feel more open. The idea behind this is that it extends sight-lines. Being able to see a foot further through the back of your cabinet takes away the bulkiness of the cabinets. Mirrors will reflect light and give the illusion of much more space.
