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.
As homeowners, we all find ourselves wishing for more space every now and then, and more often than not it’s in the kitchen. It’s the place where a lot of time is spent, with lots happening and it’s constantly the place that seems smaller than it is. Plus, it is often a smaller room in any floorplan. While we may not be able to actually make your kitchen any bigger, here are some tips as to how to make your kitchen seem a lot bigger than it is.
There’s a growing trend for ‘broken-plan’ living, where the spaces are only partly separated –you may want to include a half wall between the kitchen and living space, or a pocket sliding door that allows you to divide off the dining room for more formal entertaining.
Colour is very important when it comes to the perception of space. As a rule, bright colours can open up a space while dark colours make them seem smaller. Which you prefer is, of course, totally down to personal taste, but also the room in which the colour lives. It can often be nice to have a darker colour in a bedroom or living room as a way of creating a cosy, intimate atmosphere. But when it comes to a kitchen, it is often best to go bright, particularly when you are trying to make the space appear bigger.
