Does your kitchen feel small, dark & crowded? Here are a few tips that work like magic to create the look of more space in your kitchen:
The first is obvious: Declutter!
Beyond that, painting the kitchen and all adjoining rooms in the same, non-boring, neutral tone unifies the areas creating the illusion of more space. We like these rich tones from Sherwin Williams: Latte, Balanced Beige, Basket Beige & Tony Taupe.
Lastly, if you have a raised bar area in your kitchen, it is creating a visual stopping point to the eye, interrupting the space and making it seem smaller. If you are in the market for new counter tops or a kitchen renovation, simply changing this area to become all one level can eliminate this barrier AND give you more counter top space!
