The look and feel of your kitchen are just as important as its functionality. When it seems like your kitchen is getting a bit cramped, there are design alterations you can consider to make the space look and feel more open. The trusted kitchen remodeling and ADU (accessory dwelling unit) company in the area, Evergreen Renovations & Roofing, shares some handy tips here.
- Draw the eye to the ceiling. This is simple enough to do–just use the same light-colored palette in your walls and ceiling to make the kitchen look like one seamless space. If you have a small kitchen but it comes with a high ceiling, you can get the most of it by building up your cabinetry. But a wall of cabinets can make the space look smaller than it actually is, so break them up with some open shelving, where you can display fun, creative decorative items. You can also bring the eyes up by adding beautiful moldings and statement light fixtures.
- Let in more natural light. Increasing access to natural light can help create a more open and brighter kitchen. But those small, old windows won’t be doing you any favors. You should consider having them replaced with newer, larger, and better ones for this reason. Evergreen Renovations & Roofing can help you with this. We are not just your bath and kitchen remodeling expert–you can also count on us for your window replacement needs.
Our high-quality options include picture windows, which have slim framing and expansive glass that allows more natural light to stream into your kitchen. They also help maximize your viewing area. But if you want to enjoy a cooling breeze aside from more sunlight, we also have operable windows, such as gliding, casement, and double-hung, that can perfectly meet your needs.
- Use light-reflecting accessories. You can make your kitchen feel and look bigger by allowing light to bounce effectively throughout the room. This means adding metallic fixtures into the space, from faucets and cabinet pulls, to pendant lights and gilt-framed mirrors. But if metals aren’t your thing, you can always go for classic white.
