Create Open Shelving:
An easy way to make your small kitchen feel larger is by removing your upper cabinets and adding floating open shelves. This still allows for storage but really opens up the space. When placing items on these shelves, we recommend grouping by color and also keeping the color very minimal.
Just as with your closets, make cleaning out your kitchen an annual occurrence. (Take advantage of being able to get rid of those annoying containers without lids) Getting your kitchen organized is one of the easiest ways to revamp your kitchen space.
Free Up Counter Space:
If you want to create a more inviting and open space, it's important to keep your kitchen free of clutter. If you have a lot of appliances, try to store the ones you don't use everyday in cabinets. You can also install under-counter microwaves, spice racks, etc.
Use Soft Colors:
Using lighter colors when designing your kitchen is another point to keep in mind when working with a smaller space. Dark colors can close your kitchen in.
