If you’re looking to update your kitchen, but don’t have the budget for a complete remodel try these tips to make your space appear larger:
Choose light colors – Light colours give the illusion of openness, so try updating your wall color to something light or if you’re a DIY enthusiast you could try giving your dated cabinets an update with a coat of white paint.
Install Open Shelving – Ditching your upper cabinets for open shelving will open up the space and allow you to keep dishes within easy reach. Display your dishes with style and up the wow factor of your kitchen!
Incorporate Patterns – Choosing a bold pattern for the floor, countertops or a wall will create visual interest in the room.
Diversify your lighting – Installing flushed or recessed light fixtures that blend into the architecture of the room will make the space feel more spacious.
Create a Mobile Island – Kitchen islands increase counter space and provide more storage in small kitchens. Install wheels so it’s front and center when you need it and you can easily move it to the side when you’re entertaining guests.
