Light is the second key feature that can be used to make your kitchen appear much bigger. The more light and bright a room is the bigger we perceive it to be. A room full of shadows or dark corners appears smaller as the whole space is not illuminated. The walls or corners can appear shorter than they actually are. By allowing maximum natural light into a room with a big window you can make your kitchen appear far bigger. You ultimately want to do whatever you can to fill your kitchen with light. Any windows that you have should remain uncovered by curtains or blinds. If privacy is still required a net curtain or frosting could be of benefit.
Once you’ve decided on the best layout, you can start finalising the details. Do your research to find out exactly what style of kitchen suits your taste and lifestyle. For instance, if you have young children, smooth, wipe-clean units will be easier to keep clean than painted Shaker-style ones.
White is a great choice for a kitchen you want to appear larger. It’s brightness and reflective nature also feeds into the importance of light, which will be discussed further later on. One dark wall can also be used to your advantage as a means of giving a room that extra sense of depth. Neutral colours are the often the best choice as they are not heavy on the eye, giving a smooth finish. Various shades of one colour can also be used well, keeping everything in the one palette gives the sense flow and elongation, for example, shades or tones of grey.
A kitchen's inflexible nature contributes to the problem. It's not a space in which you can just rearrange the furniture at whim. Lined with built-in and bolted-to-the-wall boxes, fixed-in-place surfaces and large, immovable machinery, a kitchen can look static and lifeless in almost no time at all.
