Some people feel that their kitchen is too small, but that there is no hope for it because they don't have anywhere to extend the kitchen into. Thankfully, this isn't true most of the time. There are actually certain things that you can do to make your kitchen appear big and use the space wisely. When you hire a remodeling contractor, he can help you do these things, and give you the best kitchen possible for the space that you have. This article will discuss 3 tips for remodeling your kitchen cabinets in a small kitchen:
Install Light Cabinets
If your kitchen is a small area, then the last thing you want to do is make it look and feel smaller than it already is. A great way to try and open up your kitchen and visually make the space seem larger is to install some kitchen cabinets that are lighter in color. White is preferable for this because it really opens up the area and helps you to feel as if a space is actually larger than it is. You will also want your kitchen walls to be white as well if you are trying to make the space look larger.
Another tip for remodeling a small kitchen is to install some deep cabinets. Make the cabinets as deep as you can allow, without making them overhang from any wall or other areas, or making them look awkward. This gives you the most space possible in your cabinets and makes having a small number of cabinets something that isn't so difficult for you to try and live with because they are deep enough to store the things that you need in them. You may even want to consider installing some different kinds of shelving within the deep cabinets, such as vertical slats for pans and/or plates, or shelves the pull out to better help you get to some of the items that you are storing in there.
Knock Down Any Separating Walls Without Cabinets
A kitchen that is open and fluid with the rest of the house will look and feel much larger than one that is enclosed with unnecessary walls.The large space surrounding the kitchen, makes the kitchen look larger than it actually is. When you meet with your remodeling contractor to discuss this, you can look into if there are any load bearing walls surrounding your kitchen, and what he could do in terms of opening up the space. Just be sure that you still allow enough room for all of your cabinets, whether they are hanging cabinets or lower cabinets.
