Everybody knows and understands that the kitchen is the heart of the home. A lot of people consider the kitchen to be the meeting point in the house, a space that is identified with affection and happiness. If a rental home’s kitchen is small, cramped, or unattractive, it can negatively influence a landlord’s capacity to keep the property rented. Expanding square footage is usually not being considered, although Hollywood property owners can merely apply design principles to their advantage, making a small kitchen look bigger and more appealing.
When drafting plans to create a bigger look in your kitchen, one of the top approaches is to opt for light, coordinating colors. Design experts suggest trying a white on the white color scheme. White naturally reflects light, creating a more spacious impression. If white isn’t your top choice for your rental home, try painting the walls and ceiling in a neutral shade that matche the floor. The concept is to create color uniformity, making the area look larger than it is.
One more vital design principle is to put in proper lighting. A dark kitchen will feel small and gloomy. When making the most of your space, consider adding more than a single light on the ceiling. Place additional lighting under, inside, and above cabinets. If the kitchen has windows, droop sheer curtains (or none at all) to use natural light to your benefit.
To increase the impression of lighting even more, consider integrating shiny surfaces anywhere possible. Stainless steel appliances, glass shelving, shiny tile, and other touches can add a sense of depth and space to a small room. Consider replacing the upper cabinet doors with glass doors. Or, for an even more theatrical feel to it, try open shelving. This is a popular choice for many small kitchens because cabinets can make a small space feel packed.
Other features that crowd a small space are large or bulky elements such as large kitchen islands. Instead, opt for narrow profiles and slim widths in the architecture. Many kitchen islands are now created specifically for narrow spaces, keeping enough quantity of counter space while reducing the bulky cabinets underneath.
