Here are some ideas that will make any kitchen look bigger and better. Not all of us have the luxury of a massive kitchen, but there are some easy things you can do that will make your kitchen at least appear bigger.


Get rid of clutter. Any kitchen looks cramped when it is cluttered. Clear off the countertops, have nothing in the sink, and put away whatever is in the drying rack. Making the kitchen look sleek and minimalist will help to make it appear larger.


Keep your kitchen squeaky clean. When any room is dirty, it is hard to focus on anything else. Believe it or not, your kitchen will look bigger if it is really clean. And don’t forget the floor. No matter how clean the counters are, if the floor is dirty, then the whole kitchen looks dirty.


There are a few design ideas that will help your kitchen look bigger. For example, in general, lighter colors expand the space and darker colors contract the same space.

Another tip is not to make the kitchen too “busy.” Too many patterns and textures will make the kitchen look crowded. Make sure your components go well together and don’t clash or compete for the eye. Similarly, you will want one focal point that draws the eye. Too many focal points will make the kitchen look crowded.

If you are planning a new kitchen, definitely talk to a kitchen professional to help you achieve harmony and rhythm in your design components. Once you have a good design, then keeping the kitchen clean and uncluttered will give you the polish that you want and the space will appear as large as possible.
