Your kitchen has specific dimensions, and you cannot change these. The same is true of standard furniture units, such as floor and wall cabinets, pantry units and also islands containing storage and butcher's blocks. The trouble is that when homes are built the standard furniture dimensions are never taken into account, and once fitted, standard units are generally an inch or two long or short.
You may have the person you hire to do your kitchen remodeling put in open shelves with glass on the front of your kitchen cabinets. This will give depth to your kitchen and help to make it appear larger. You only want to do this if you plan on keeping your cabinets nice and neat with your plates neatly stacked, glasses lined up, etc. One of the kitchen remodeling ideas is to make your kitchen look longer make sure that your kitchen cabinets are long pantry kitchen cabinets, not short, as this will make your kitchen look shorter.
What about colour? Well what we are seeing is that the range of colours now being offered in kitchens has grown hugely over the last year. Designers and homeowners are becoming more adventurous when choosing cabinet colours with many now opting for subtle colours, especially in contemporary and modern designs. Subtle colours could be in the way of gloss or matt doors in a modern kitchen or even warm wood textures. Of course, mixing both paint colours and wood textures is a massive trend at the moment and is only going to gain in popularity. For classical and traditional kitchen styles, off white painted kitchens are still popular but other bolder colours are coming through, especially when mixed with softer colours. For solid wood kitchens, oak and walnut are still going to be as popular as ever.
To add more natural light you and if it is an option, you may add glass sliding doors to your kitchen. If you already have a single door in your kitchen, you are half way there. A professional can add another space for a door and you can have your beautiful glass sliding doors. This is a great idea if you have children. When your children are playing outside you can easily check on them through the glass doors. You will also have a lovely view of the outdoors when you are spending time in your kitchen. If you have room for a small table a breakfast nook in the corner is a great idea. The wood benches can seat you and your family for your breakfasts before you head to work and school.
To help make your small kitchen appear larger you should make the most out of your appliances. In other words, have a professional build your microwave right into the cabinet area. This will give you more countertop space or eliminate a microwave stand from your kitchen. You stove and oven should all be one to save space as well. If you do not use your toaster, coffee pot, blender and other items frequently you should keep them in the cabinets to keep your kitchen looking neat instead of too small and cluttered.
Wine Racks and Other Occasional Items. Wine racks are useful items to insert between individual units in a row along a wall, because they can easily be altered in size so that the entire unit stretches from wall to wall without end spaces. They are functional and appropriate for a kitchen. Other kitchen units that you can have made to your specifications are spaces for appliances that are best kept behind closed doors, such as power washers, steam cleaners and patio cleaners.
