Two of the most important things to use to make your kitchen look bigger is the use of is colour and light. By keeping these two elements in mind when building your kitchen, you can ensure you make the most of your space and make it look as spacious as possible.
Pay particular attention to a kitchen's three major components -- cabinets, countertops and appliances. Chances are, you'll notice that in the most satisfying and visually compelling kitchens, there is at least some variety within each of those categories. In any given kitchen, a single style of cabinet can have different finishes. The countertops on one side of a room could be different from those on the opposite side. The dishwasher and range might be stainless steel, but the refrigerator can be camouflaged by a cabinet-matching panel. A cooktop's backsplash might be ceramic tile, but the ones flanking the sink could be painted beadboard.
Backsplashes are also points of departure. No, they do not have to be made of the same material as the countertops. You can have laminate counters and ceramic tile backsplashes. Or, if you prefer a single material, change its form, using seamless slabs of granite for counters and granite tiles for backsplashes, large tiles for the counters, smaller mosaics for the backsplashes.
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.
