Make a Small Kitchen Look Larger

Rethink Your Space

Where do you spend most of your time when you're home? If your family is like mine, it's probably in the kitchen. But, no matter how large a kitchen is, it never feels big enough. Several years ago, when we remodeled our kitchen, I completely redesigned the floor plan. The renovations included knocking down a wall (we had the best time doing the demolition), installing a garden window over the sink (we lowered the bottom of the window to be even with the countertop), adding an island with an overhang (with room for three chairs or stools) and putting in a food prep peninsula at table height (it has an overhang with room for three or four stools). 

Here are several ideas to make any kitchen feel and look larger. Remember -- you don't have to go for all of them. Any one of these suggestions can make a world of difference.
