Take the cafe curtain off the window, add under-cabinet lighting, and paint those oak cabinets glossy white! You can even add a mirror over a window-less sink to bounce the light around. The lighter and brighter your kitchen, the roomier it will feel. So all white is not your thing? No problem — but try to pick a color and stick to it. If your cabinets, walls, and countertops are all varying shades of gray, for example, the space would not feel chopped up by a countertop that is a strong contrast to the woodwork above and below.
There is absolutely no reason to feel sorry about a small kitchen because it always has its advantages: it is cozier, you would not spend 30 minutes to find something because everything is at hand. Here are some ideas how to make a small kitchen cool. To better give an feeling of space, create contrasts in colors and luminosity. Do not hesitate to play with materials like brick, glossy paint, wood and plain white. If your kitchen is very small, you can use built-in furniture and appliances and make the dining zone in the main room. Some more pictured ideas are below to help you better design your small kitchen.
