10 tips to make your kitchen look more spacious
- Light colours: The choice of light colours, such as white, beige or light grey, is essential to visually enlarge the space. These tones reflect light, creating a feeling of openness and luminosity in the kitchen. You can combine them, or better yet, use a single light colour to achieve more uniformity and spaciousness.
- Good lighting: Adequate lighting is key to maximising the perception of space. Make the most of natural light and supplement it with strategic artificial lighting to eliminate shadows and highlight key areas of the kitchen, such as work areas or display cabinets.
- Multifunctional furniture: Choosing furniture that fulfils multiple functions is essential in small spaces. Folding tables, stackable chairs and versatile furniture allow you to adapt the space according to your needs, maximising functionality.
- Glass doors: Glass doors add a visual dimension by allowing you to see through them. This transparency creates the illusion of depth and avoids the feeling of visual blockage in the kitchen. If we also play with the lighting, it can be a great success.
- Open shelves: Opting for floating shelves or shelving rather than closed cabinets helps to maintain the feeling of lightness and spaciousness. It also allows for the display of decorative items, adding visual interest to the space.
- Use mirrors: Placing mirrors in strategic places reflects light and creates the illusion of a larger space. Mirrors can also add a decorative touch, visually enlarging the kitchen.
- The size of the appliances: Opting for smaller appliances with a slim design contributes to a tidier appearance. With appliances such as cooktop extractors you avoid the feeling of visual clutter in the kitchen. Uniformity in design also plays a crucial role.
- Continuous worktops: Choosing worktops of the same colour and material creates a visually continuous surface. This eliminates visual divisions, providing a cleaner appearance and making the kitchen appear more spacious.
- Less is more: Avoiding excess decoration and clutter is essential to maintain a sense of spaciousness. Keep work surfaces clean and tidy. Limit decorative accessories so as not to visually overwhelm the space, minimalism is excellent at creating spaciousness.
- Open kitchen design: If possible, partially opening the kitchen to other areas of the house creates a visual connection. Removing doors and partitions makes the kitchen appear larger and more integrated with the rest of the home. This openness improves the flow of the space, and if you want to maintain some separation you can use peninsulas or glass enclosures.
