How to create a bigger kitchens
Looking for kitchens with more space? Maybe extra room for a family visit? OR perhaps your kitchen is simply just too small. If you’re planning on adding on that extra extension or knocking down that wall, roll back up the blueprints, there’s a few easy tips to help you.
Kitchen lighting installed to create
Often overlooked, lighting can be an essential asset to creating the illusion of a bigger kitchen. Install more lights into your kitchen space and allow it to reflect and brighten up your room, maximising any natural lighting that may already be present and create an open and spacious kitchen. Take into account areas that natural daylight do not reach and install lighting to create an evenly lit room, this draws the eye around the room rather than diverting the attention to one area – opening up the space and creating the look desired.
Avoid the acoustic issues and prevent the ‘kitchen echo’
Echoing in kitchens is a problem that can be easily fixed. Installing a softer floor space, or even accessorising with a rug helps to absorb the sound more than a hard wood or tiled floor would, flooring such as vinyl and wood also help to minimise the echo. Enjoy your hard flooring? Try to add curtains at windows in order to soften the sound without having to change it.
From the kitchen, straight into the garden
Furthermore, if your kitchen leads into some garden space, the installation of some French windows or bi folding doors can help to open up your kitchen space to the maximum. These doors can be opened to create a well ventilated room with the breeze of fresh air, along with more natural lighting, one of the best ways to make a room appear bigger. In turn providing the spacious kitchen desired along with quick access to the garden.
In addition to kitchens, we also design, install and manufacturer, bathrooms, bedrooms and home offices.
