Because you'd like a bigger kitchen #reasonstomove

Posted 27/01/2016 by: Reeds Rains

The desire to have a bigger kitchen is one of the many #reasonstomove. The kitchen is considered the heart of the home for many, so we thought we would share some ideas for creating the illusion of a bigger kitchen, as well as highlighting some stunning kitchens both on Pinterest and from properties for sale with Reeds Rains.

  • Pale colours and cabinets that are the same colour as your walls create the illusion of more space; the pale colours reflect light and make the space feel bigger than it is. You could also consider shiny surfaces and doors that will also reflect light.
  • Choose patterns that draw the eye lengthwise or vertically, this will help make the room appear taller or longer.
  • Instead of traditional upper cabinets, you could use open shelving and storage, however, you will need to keep this neat and tidy!
  • Reduce clutter – removing unused objects and clutter from worktops will instantly make it look like there’s more space.
  • Let in as much light as you can, try not to cover windows with elaborate blinds and curtains.
  • Mirrors can increase a room’s visual space, if you have room on the walls, hang or mirror or you could even use mirrored tiles or splash backs.
  • Consider upper cabinets with glass, these help to add depth to your kitchen, creating the illusion of a bigger room.
