4 Simple Ways to Make Your Kitchen Look & Feel More Open

Given how the kitchen is one of the busiest areas in a home, you’ll want to make sure it has a good layout. With an open layout, movement in your kitchen and keeping a spacious feel is easier. DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Huntsville, one of the trusted kitchen remodelers in the area, shares some handy tips.

  1. Match colors and finishes. You can make your kitchen look more open by coordinating its palette. White, cream and other light colors make a kitchen look less confined, while darker colors will provide some additional depth and volume to the room. How about the cabinets and woodwork? Keep these two elements united design-wise to ensure a more open feel. Otherwise, clashing colors will create visual clutter in your kitchen. 
  2. Connect your rooms seamlessly. Do you feel like your kitchen is a bit too cramped? Consider removing the wall between your kitchen and the adjacent room to create a more open feel. For changes that involve knocking down walls, be sure to turn to the reliable kitchen remodeling company, DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Huntsville. We can evaluate structural considerations to safely link two rooms into a single, cohesive space.
  3. Let in more natural light. Here’s an easy way to make a kitchen look larger than it actually is: add larger windows. They allow more sunlight into the room, giving it the illusion of more space. Tall or wide picture windows are an excellent option, but if you also want to enjoy a cooling breeze, choose sliding windows. Did you know increasing your access to natural light can also improve your home’s energy efficiency? Because sunlight reduces your reliance on artificial lighting in the daytime, you can save on your monthly bills. 
  4. Be creative with storage. When investing in a kitchen renovation, it always pays to take storage into account. Fortunately, keeping a more organized kitchen is as easy as getting rid of unnecessary items and being creative when it comes to your storage. You can use the area behind the door, the negative space above your cabinets and the area above your kitchen countertops as additional storage. Adding open shelving might also help as well.
