Kitchen Remodeling

Having a small kitchen doesn’t mean you have to feel closed in while cooking. A few simple tricks can help make a compact kitchen appear more spacious and transform that tiny space into one of your favorite rooms in the house.

Whether you hire professional Cleveland kitchen remodelers or you complete some DIY projects, here are some tips for making the most of your small kitchen.

Add a Bay or Garden Window

Adding a bay or garden window in a small kitchen does two things. One is that it helps to flood the space with natural light, and more light helps the room feel larger. Plus, since these types of windows extend away from the home, they help to open up the space.

Consider Open Shelving or Glass Door Cabinets

Open shelving or glass doors on cabinets are other stylish ways to make your kitchen appear larger. Some homeowners don’t like this idea because it means having to keep the contents of cabinets tidy, but for some, this is an easy-to-achieve update for a small kitchen.

If you can’t get on board with open or glass-door shelving, consider choosing a lighter color for your cabinets, which will also make the room look more open. Professional kitchen cabinet remodelers can help you complete this project beautifully.


Decluttering is a good idea no matter the size of your kitchen, but it’s especially important in a smaller space. Clutter makes it difficult to know where to look and this makes the room feel more closed off. Keeping countertops clear can help to make your space feel larger.

Add Abundant Lighting

Dim lighting isn’t what you want in a small space. Shadows make an already compact kitchen feel even smaller. The good news is that adding new lighting is a fast and affordable update. Add under-cabinet lighting and brighter overhead lighting.
