Kitchen / June 26, 2018 / .
These days, contemporary built houses often have large kitchens. But if you have bought an old property, you will know that the kitchens can be small, like really small. Here are ways to make your small kitchen look bigger. And whats more fun than DIY and decoration, whether you have just bought a new home, or you are re-decorating.
When painting your walls, countertops, cabinetry, and shelves, use different colors that do not have a huge contrast. The space will look bigger than it is. But make sure the colors belong to the same color family. For instance, you can use soft gray and green hues. Buyers eyes would not be confused by the abrupt shifts from light to dark and your kitchen will look spacious and serene.
When selecting your paint, flooring and fitted kitchen, try to keep everything in the same tone or colour family. Bold, bright contrasting colours work best in large kitchens, whereas subtle differences in tone work best in small to make the most of the space and make it appear larger. Sleek, modern appliances will make the kitchen feel less clunky. Think about the size too, if you do not need a double-dishwasher or American sized fridge, then do not buy them. The smaller sized Smeg fridges will give a kitchen an elegant, sleek sense of style without being too over powering, especially in a small space.
There is no set rule on where to start when it comes to choosing a color palette for your kitchen, but your wall color can help dictate how you design the rest of the room. Some popular paint colors for kitchens include yellow, red, blue, white and green. Overall, lighter wall colors tend to work well in kitchens and can create an airy and inviting atmosphere.
