If space is a constraint in your kitchen then you might want to remodel it so as to make it look larger while at the same time making the most use of the space available for ample storage, free movement in the kitchen without bumping into objects and also having the right appliances positioned accordingly.
One of the first things to do while remodeling your kitchen is to draw a new plan and compare it to the current outlay of your kitchen. Since it is a working kitchen you as the owner will know best which objects are taking up more space than they need to or how you would prefer to have the counter space divided. Once you have a blueprint of the new plan you will be able to modify accordingly when you compare to the existing kitchen.
If you have a wall from the kitchen to the dining room see if you can take it down and make the room more spacious. If you have very little space you might opt for smaller appliances that fit the room better and don’t make it feel cramped. Long cabinets might be a good option where you can store all the pots and pans and jars away. If you have limited storage space then placing hooks for the pans might be another idea. Clearing as much clutter as you can from the counter can also give your kitchen that larger look. Placing a smaller table or doing away with the table and opting for a counter height breakfast bar can also double as an eating area without taking up too much space.
Reducing the size of your appliances, rearranging your dining area and also coming up with judiciously used storage spaces might be just one aspect of optimizing your kitchen space. Another fair idea that most builders and remodellers use is color of the walls, lighting and also tile layout for your kitchen floor. Lighter colors on the walls make the room look large and if the lighting is angled properly so that it reflects the wall color then it might be a good way to make the kitchen look larger than it is. Skylights are a good way to add natural light to the room if that is possible. If you have windows in kitchen then you can work your appliances and your lighting based on the natural light that filters into the room. Make sure that nothing blocks the entry of the light since this may make the room look small. Another trick that most home builders or kitchen designers use is the tile layout. Instead of laying it out in a regular fashion if you angle them or lay them diagonally then they make the space look larger.With a little imagination you can change a small cramped kitchen and make it more functional and utilitarian.
