By Cedar Park Home Remodels

 

Are you so fed up with your small kitchen, you might consider tearing it down to make room for a new one.

Not everyone has the means or the space to have the chef-worthy kitchen that they dream of. You don't have to be discouraged if that is your reality. It's possible to do so much with a tiny kitchen footprint.

These amazing ideas for small kitchen remodels will get your creative juices flowing.

8 Tips for Small Kitchen Remodeling

Optical illusions are a great option for small kitchen designs. Here are some options that work for any budget.

1. Try Creative Painting Strategies

Paint is an inexpensive and easy solution to small kitchen renovations. Paint can be used as a way to bring life to a space and create the illusion of more.

You can use paint to make small kitchens look larger.

  • Use light and neutral colors
  • Dark cabinets can be painted a lighter color or bottom cabinets painted dark. Upper cabinets can then be painted a lighter color to give the illusion that they are higher.
  • Bold accent walls and open shelving can be adorned with pops of color.
  • Keep your ceilings clean
  • Avoid matte paint. Sine or eggshell colors allow light to bounce off surfaces, creating a larger space.

2. Replace cabinet doors with glass or add open shelving

It can appear as though you have more space by replacing cabinets with glass doors and/or installing open shelving in cabinets. To make this trick work, it is important to clear your shelves of clutter and other items that could clutter up your space.

There are several ways to make glass doors or open shelving work well in your space.

  • You should stick to a color palette. For example, display all white dishes and all red dishes. But keep mismatched dishes at home.
  • Balance smaller and greater items
  • Keep it simple and keep the things you use everyday close by.

3. Geometric patterns can be used

Geometric patterns are very popular in small kitchens. Geometric patterns can not only be fun, but they also add texture and depth to the kitchen, which can make it appear larger than it is.

You can make geometric shapes from tile, wallpaper, or kitchen accessories (e.g. a floor runner).

But be careful not to add too many geometric patterns. The more patterns you use, the more chaotic your kitchen will become.

4. Mirrors or mirrored surfaces can be added

Mirrors reflect light which opens up spaces and gives the impression of a larger space. You have two options: a mirror or a mirrored backsplash.

A mirror can make your kitchen seem larger if you have an eat-in kitchen. A mirror in the dining space is believed to increase your ability to hold on to wealth.

5. Connect Your Kitchen to The Great Outdoors

Do you have an outdoor space? French doors can be a good investment. You'll be able to bring more light into your kitchen. They also increase the space's view beyond doors, making it appear larger.

6. Accent Lighting

Shadows are a draw for our eyes and can make small spaces seem cramped. Accent lights can be added to shelves or under cabinets to eliminate shadows. They will make the space seem larger and open up the space, making it look larger.

7. Streamline Your Storage Space

A small kitchen can feel cramped.

We recommend that you take inventory every day and spend time decluttering.

Once you have decluttered your home, you can make use of the space available by investing in organizational elements like a corner cabinet. Keep your coffee pot, toaster, and other small items hidden away.

8. You can make your space larger with horizontal stripes

We all know that wearing large horizontal stripes can make our faces appear bigger than they are. In the same way, horizontal stripes in your kitchen can make it appear bigger. These stripes can also be created with wallpapers, tiles, flooring, or rugs.

Hire a Contractor

You might believe that you can save money if you do a small kitchen remodeling project yourself. This is sometimes true. This can, however, end up costing your business more over the long term.

It can be life-saving to hire a contractor when there are structural, electrical, and plumbing problems. Remodeling is not as easy as painting and tiling.
