Are you fed up with your small kitchen? Would you consider tearing it down to make room for a new one?

Not everyone has the means or the space to have the chef-worthy kitchen they dream of. You don't have to be discouraged if that is your reality. It's possible to do so much with a tiny kitchen footprint.

Here are some fantastic ideas for small kitchen remodels to get your creative juices flowing.

8 Tips for Small Kitchen Remodeling

Optical illusions can be a great way of making small kitchens feel more extensive. These illusions can be used in almost any space and budget.

1. Try Creative Painting Strategies

Paint is an inexpensive and easy way to remodel a small kitchen. Paint can be used as a way to bring life to a space and create the illusion of more.

You can make your small kitchen larger by using paint

  • Stick to neutral, light colors
  • Dark cabinets can be painted a lighter color or bottom cabinets painted dark. This creates the illusion that they are higher.
  • Bold accent walls and open shelving can be adorned with pops of color.
  • Keep your ceilings white
  • Avoid matte paint. Sine or eggshell colors allow light to bounce off surfaces, creating a larger space.

2. Replace cabinet doors with glass or add open shelving

It can appear as though you have more space by replacing cabinets with glass doors and/or installing open shelving in cabinets. To make this trick work, it is important to clear your shelves of clutter.

There are several ways to make your space work with open shelving or glass cabinet doors.

  • You should stick to a color palette. Keep all your dishes white or red on display and all of your mismatched dishes elsewhere.
  • Balance smaller and greater items
  • Keep it simple and keep the things you use every day close by.

3. Geometric Patterns are an option

Geometric patterns are very popular in small kitchens. Geometric patterns can not only be fun, but they also add texture and depth to the kitchen, which can make it appear larger than it is.

Geometric shapes can also be added using wallpaper, tile, and kitchen accessories like a runner.

But be careful not to add too many geometric patterns. The more you add, however, the more chaotic your kitchen will look.

4. Add mirrors and mirrored surfaces

Mirrors reflect light which opens up spaces and gives the illusion of a larger space. You have two options: a mirror or a mirrored backsplash.

An eat-in kitchen can look larger if you add a mirror to the dining area. A mirror in your dining room will increase your ability hold on to wealth.

5. Connect your Kitchen to the Great Outdoors

Are you lucky enough to have an outdoor area outside of your kitchen walls that are beautiful? French doors can be a good investment. You'll be able to bring more light into your kitchen. They also increase the space's view beyond doors, making it appear larger.

6. Accent lights are a great way to add some style

Our eyes are drawn towards shadows and small spaces can feel cramped. Accent lights can be added to shelves or under cabinets to eliminate shadows. They will make the space seem larger and open up the space, making it appear bigger.

7. Streamline Your Storage Space

A small kitchen can feel cramped.

We recommend that you take stock of all your belongings and spend some time decluttering. Take Marie Kondo as your guide and go through everything you own and only keep what you really need. Do you really need 10 spoons and 2 food processors?

After clearing your clutter, invest in the right organizational elements like a corner cabinet to make the most of the space. Keep your toaster and coffeepot hidden, but make them easily accessible.

8. You can make your space larger with horizontal stripes

We all know that wearing large horizontal stripes can make our faces appear larger than they are. In the same way, horizontal stripes in your kitchen can make it appear bigger. These stripes can also be applied with wallpapers, tiles, flooring, or rugs.

Hire a Contractor

You might believe that you can save money by doing small kitchen remodeling projects yourself. This is sometimes true. This can, however, end up costing your business more over the long term.

It can be life-saving to hire a contractor when there are structural, electrical, or other problems. It is rare for a remodel to be as easy as painting and tiling.

A licensed contractor can save you time, money, stress, and frustration. They'll ensure the work is done properly, giving you peace of mind that your kitchen remodel will continue to be in great condition for many years.

A beautiful kitchen is possible even if your budget is tight. Our small kitchen renovation ideas can help you create an area you will love.
