There are plenty of tricks that can help you expand the appearance of depth, height and width in your kitchen, and the best way to start is at the bottom. Firstly, make sure that floor boards run lengthwise, to create the illusion of a longer kitchen space. If you plan to feature a backsplash or other wall design, consider arranging the tiles in opposition to the floorboards' orientation—this will help to create the illusion of depth in the space. Finally, consider raising cabinets or appliances off the floor—if they're flush, the entire space will seem shorter, but raising them slightly will give the appearance of a space with more height.
You'll need to allow a minimum of 7 feet to accommodate a small table and chairs, though 8 feet is better and 9 feet is optimum. (Nine feet allows for a 36" table and a 36" clearance for each chair.) Try to leave 48" of walking space around the table so nobody ends up knocking the orange juice glasses off the table.
Perhaps the most functional option of all is the kitchen island that also serves as a breakfast bar. Clever islands now feature stools that are stashed inside when not in use and end leaves that fold down to hide the stools. Use the island as a workspace, and then let people eat there when you’re not feeding the entire crew.
The first tip for small kitchen cabinets is to build up, not out. You can stack cabinets on top of one another, building all the way to the ceiling, and use every inch of available vertical space.
