Kitchen / June 13, 2018 /
Open shelving is another great way to make the most of a small kitchen. However, it must be kept minimal and tidy. Clutter on display is going to make the room feel crowded. There is an old saying of a place for everything and everything in it is place. Storage is essential to small kitchen living. If you can create dedicated space for items and activities it will make the space look, and feel, much bigger and you will be able to better utilise the space.
One way to make a small kitchen appear larger is to remove some cabinet doors or replace the solid fronts with glass. This pulls the eye past the cabinet frames, into the depths of the cabinets, so the walls feel farther away. This trick is most effective if you can keep what is in the cabinets orderly and color-coordinated; clutter tends to make a room feel crowded.
