Small kitchens are a reality of life in many homes, especially apartments or older houses. If expanding the kitchen isn’t an option, that doesn’t mean you’re doomed to spend every meal time feeling that the walls are closing in. There several excellent small kitchen makeover ideas that can give your small kitchen feel cozy rather than suffocating. And even with a tight budget, you can still do a small kitchen makeover that will look and function well. One of the simplest start of small kitchen makeover is, repositioning the appliances in the kitchen. You will notice that many a time we position our appliances at odd angles and places. We do experience a lot of inconvenience due to their position, but often we are plain lazy to move them to a new place. However, this simple trick can free a lot of space in your kitchen.
Then you can open the cabinets. Having more open storage space creates an illusion of space in a kitchen. Or you can use features like roll down, pull out and slide away wherever possible. Sliding doors can be installed, instead of the usual swaying ones, which take a lot of space when opened up. Pull out tops can be used for chopping, cutting and then pushed inside when not required. If you do not wish to go for any of the above small kitchen makeover ideas then, you may simply go for a new fresh coat of paint. A pastel or lighter shade of paint can make your kitchen look cleaner and spacious. You may also consider painting kitchen cabinets in a complementing or contrasting color.
