Kitchen – tips to make your space look bigger

Remodelling a bigger kitchen from scratch

Have you ever felt like your kitchen could use a bit more space? Whether you are an avid cook or just casually put something on a frying pan, put comfortableness above all when planning your kitchen makeover. If you want to save some counter space, consider buying a single sink instead of the widely popular double version. Those additional 12 inches will surely make your counter more acommodative. Moreover, there are a lot of space to be saved by choosing a slimmer fridge and dishwasher. If you don’t cook so much then maybe the compound dishwasher will be a more logical solution. Another way to save space is to use upper shelfs or simply removing doors to upper cabinets. This way you won’t need to mind your head. On the other hand, if your aim is to widen the area of motion, perhaps shallow cabinets are the right choice for you, especially considering how tough the standard 24 inch version is to reach.

Visual-trick your way to a spacy kitchen design

At the end of the day, it all comes down to whether the kitchen feels spacy, even if it not necessarily is so. That’s why at Chicagoland Remodeling we always emphasize the visual aspects of kitchen designs. The untold secret lies in lighting – try taking the curtains off the windows and intalling under-cabinet lights. If you wish to deepen the effect you might want to come around to white or other bright colors of kitchen layouts. When it comes to backsplashes, it is advisable to make them short, preferably in color that blends with the walls. Another options is to mirror your backsplash which will create the sensation your kitchen is much bigger than it truly is.And last,but not least – aim for the least amount of clutter, especially in places that attract the eye the most.
