Natural light enlarges any space. You may have no choice about the number or placement of windows in your kitchen, but you can maximize the light you do have by keeping window treatments minimal. Here, blinds add a dressy note without blocking the light. If you want privacy, try an opaque shade that allows light in.
Paint your walls white. If you really don not like white or it is not practical for your home, paint it a really light pastel colour instead. The lighter and brighter the room is, the more spacious and airy it will feel. Let in as much light as possible and natural lighting is always best. You can do this with windows, roof lights or with artificial lighting such as lamps, spotlights and daylight bulbs. If you have a small window and limited natural light, you can bounce the light around with mirrors, glass cabinet doors and glass framed pictures.
