We’re used to seeing gorgeous pictures on Pinterest and Houzz of huge kitchens with endless space for islands and double sinks. However, many of us live in older houses with small, cramped kitchens. How can we make these kitchens feel bigger?
- Custom Cabinets – Great storage can help make a small kitchen look less cluttered and can help homeowners manage all of their kitchen accessories.
- Partial Breakdown of a Wall – If your kitchen has three walls, it can feel like a stifling box. Even partially breaking down the wall that leads into the living room can greatly open up the kitchen and allow for a breakfast nook.
- Light Paint Shades – Painting the cabinets, drawers, and walls a light color will help the light bounce around, making the room feel bigger than it really is.
Of course, you don’t have to depend on little tricks to make a kitchen feel bigger. You can actually make it bigger. A quality contractor can perform what we call a “build out” to give you more space in your kitchen. If you live in Dallas/Ft.
