If you don’t have the money to spend on expanding your kitchen’s square footage, there are several ways that you can maximize the space you’re working with. Older homes in Baltimore usually have a galley-style kitchen. They may seem small, but here are a few tips to make an old-fashioned, tiny kitchen feel expansive and luxurious.
Light-Colored Cabinets and Walls
Keep the ambiance of your kitchen feeling spacious and airy with light colors. Opt for a sleek and contemporary look with light gray walls and white cabinets. If you’re more interested in a traditional colonial look for your Baltimore home, consider cream-colored walls and a very light shade of a neutral blue or green for your cabinets. Choosing light colors for your remodeling project will naturally make your kitchen feel bigger and more comfortable.
Brighten Your Flooring
The color of your kitchen flooring is probably not something you spend very much time contemplating, but it absolutely makes a difference. Dark-colored floors can leave an already-small kitchen feeling even more cramped. When looking at kitchen flooring, choosing a light-colored and larger-sized tile will make a small kitchen feel much grander.
Rethink Your Refrigerator
Refrigerators don’t have to dominate your kitchen space. American refrigerators tend to be very wide and clunky. There are slim-lined models available that allow you to go up with your refrigerator space rather than out. This will automatically add space for more cabinets and storage, making your kitchen feel much larger.
Go Light on the Lighting
Lighting also is a huge factor in making a small kitchen feel uncluttered. Heavy and dark light fixtures are distracting and can make the space feel harsh. When it comes to lighting, consider smaller, less invasive light fixtures.
Storage is problematic in most kitchens, let alone smaller-sized ones. Updating your kitchen cabinets with narrow filler cabinets that slide in and out will let you hide your smaller kitchen items. This means there’s more cabinet space for all of your larger kitchen items and foods. Adding more storage is the key to making a small kitchen feel accommodating.
