Use geometry to your advantage
Straight and bold geometric lines are a smart way to make your kitchen appear larger. A straight horizontal line along the wall can make your kitchen appear wider and vertical lines make your kitchen appear taller. Geometric lines or grids can take center stage and draw attention to a single point, leaving the rest of the kitchen out of focus. Design elements like subway tiles can help create a bold final product that makes a lasting statement by taking up minimal space.
Friends with colors
Allow for colors in the kitchen that make your space appear larger. Choose pale colors, pastels, and whites that open up space and reflect light. Choose tiles, cabinets, paint, and even utensils in colors and tones that make the space within your kitchen appear larger. However, if you like colors, use the pop element. For example, a single bright yellow or blue cabinet in the middle of an all-white kitchen can work perfectly in terms of design without compromising space.
- Consider open cabinets
Open storage kitchens without cabinets may surprise you with how much space you can get. However, a beautiful open kitchen is only possible if the cabinets and cupboards are not crowded and stubby. Traditional kitchens with large open shelves and stacked copper utensils are already in vogue. However, if your storage space is already full, an open kitchen can make your kitchen appear smaller.
- Use reflective surfaces
Homeowners use mirrors in bedrooms and living rooms all the time, but why not use the kitchen? The kitchen should not stray away from mirrors and other reflective surfaces. Large kitchens with mirrors instead of back walls make kitchens absolutely stunning. Other reflective surfaces like glass tile, shiny cabinet slats, shiny tile, paint, and stainless steel appliances can open up more space in the kitchen.
Use slim cabinets

The shallow base units and slim cabinets look like regular cabinets, but they are thinner and do a great job of storing cookware.

Spotlighting and cabinet lighting
Lighting makes any space appear larger. Natural lighting is the best source and the easiest way to make a small kitchen appear larger. Skylights and glass doors are great ways to let more light into a room. If not, opt for spotlights and cabinet lights. Not only is it stylish, but it can also make kitchens appear more spacious. At night, cabinet lights add a luxurious feel to your kitchen.
Kitchen appliances can sometimes be unsightly. Smaller devices like a blender, electric kettles, and toasters can take up a lot of space. Use a designated space for all appliances near the power source and away from work surfaces. Incorporation of electrical appliances in the kitchen. Build a microwave oven in the cabinets or hide your refrigerator with the same material as the cabinets, so that your refrigerator blends in with the rest of the kitchen.
Lose a wall
If you are doing a larger renovation project for your home, consider tearing down the wall. Walls can be very intrusive and the lack of one can open up more space. If you can’t bear to lose the entire wall, consider tearing it down halfway and building a breakfast table.
The single sink kitchen
Let’s be honest, we don’t need two sinks in the kitchen. Double sinks dominate most of the work surface and one sink can serve as two sinks.
Let there be light
Light is the main design element that makes any space appear larger. Make sure your kitchen layout allows for plenty of natural light. Large, plain windows let in full sunlight and create larger kitchens. Make sure to keep kitchen windows free of blinds and blinds.
Treat the sightline
An unobstructed line of sight can make your kitchen or any room appear much larger. The kitchen line of sight can be obstructed by clutter, unseen appliances, unnecessary wall fixtures, and hard surfaces. For example, backless high chairs are great furniture that doesn’t interfere with your line of sight. The same happens, for example, with the fridges that ring in the middle of the kitchen, and not with cabinets. So go to your kitchen and line up all the things in your kitchen in straight lines, and you instantly have a bigger kitchen.
Get a slim fridge
A slim refrigerator can do wonders in a kitchen space. Refrigerators occupy approximately 20% of each kitchen. The slim refrigerator can perform all the functions of a normal refrigerator and help open more space at the same time.
Get rid of the cupboard handles
Cabinets and cabinets with recessed or concealed pulls are a design trend now. Smaller kitchens can feel cramped when the cabinets have prominent handles. Hidden knobs create smooth sightlines, creating the illusion of space.
Go easy on the personal touches
The kitchen needs a personal touch. But trinkets, fridge magnets, and lots of kid-friendly tables and pots can be distracting and create a messy space. Alternatively, you can dedicate a small, totally personal plate to a more orderly kitchen.
Kitchens are very personal spaces that are best enjoyed when they feel spacious and cozy. Good luck making your kitchen a favorite place in the house!
