Here are suggested ways to open up a small kitchen.
First and foremost, keep the layout simple. Keep in mind that in a small space everything really has to work, including surface materials, fixtures and cabinets.
As much as possible add windows. However, if this is not possible install open shelves and only a few overhead cabinets.
Store rarely used kitchen appliances and cookware in a nearby closet.
A well lighted kitchen will appear larger than it really is. The use of proper lighting should be observed.
Get appliances in the right size, downsizing appliances is a good move to make a proportion to the space at the same time will take less space. However though the kitchen is small, a large kitchen sink is more convenient and practical in the long run.
To unify the overall look, most designers suggest monochromatic color. Select the best color palette that will best fit your style and kitchen design. Furthermore using the same style and color of fixtures and cabinet pulls can add an exquisite appearance.
