Kitchen / March 13, 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.
Brown is considered earthy and evocative of the very place where your food comes from the earth, the farm. For those who are neutral-averse, brown almost becomes the New Neutral: safe. Brown lends itself to so many tasty pairings. This kitchen is expertly color-coordinated. The reddish-brown of the walls play well with the darker brown cabinets. Even the kitchen islands green fits into this family.
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.
White is your best friend in a small kitchen. It reflects light, enhancing the sense of space and making the walls recede. When you include white on cabinetry, countertops, walls, and the ceiling, you create a seamless space without edges or boundaries. Use several shades of white, and combine contrasting textures to keep an all-white room from feeling sterile. Recessed-panel cabinets and crown molding create subtle shadows that add interest, too.
