Kitchen / June 1, 2018 /
Countertops crowded with cookware, cabinets, and collectibles overwhelm a small kitchen and cramp work space. To enlarge the room, clear off counters, windowsills, and cabinet tops, and stash as much as you can behind closed doors. To take decluttering further, opt for minimalist European-style cabinetry with sleek, flat-panel doors.
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.
