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.
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.
For example, an island can be a departure point for cabinet style, finish or color. Its cabinets can be the same style as a kitchen's perimeter cabinets but in a different finish or color. Or they can be the same color and finish as the perimeter cabinets, but with a slightly different door style.
