More and more homeowners choose houses in part for their open layouts, such as kitchens that flow directly into living rooms instead of being separated by a wall. If your current kitchen design falls into the “closed off” category, and you want to spend your remodeling budget elsewhere, don’t fret. There are many simple and inexpensive ways to make a closed kitchen seem larger than it is.
How Can I Make My Closed Kitchen Design Seem Bigger?
Replace the Cabinet Doors With Glass
Replace your cabinet doors or your entire cabinetry system with glass. The ability to see into the cabinets makes any kitchen design appear larger than it is while also helping you remember what is where so you don’t find expired dry goods lodged in the back.
Use Light-Colored Paint
Use light-colored paint such as a pastel yellow or neutral beige hue to open up your closed kitchen. Dark colors make any small space seem even more claustrophobic. Pair your chosen paint with light-hued, complementary window treatments that allow as much sunlight in as possible for an airer kitchen.
Avoid “Busy” Designs
Save complex design ideas for the rest of your house and use decor pieces sparingly in your kitchen. Busy backsplashes and an abundance of wall decor create a cluttered, small feeling, so choose a few key pieces that again complement your color scheme. As far as your backsplash goes, choose uniform subway tile or another light-colored option.
Go for Smaller Furniture
Opt for small yet comfortable kitchen furniture featuring clean lines and not a lot of detail. Bulky furniture with thick legs and dizzying patterns contribute to a cluttered look and take up too much floor space.
Use Reflective Appliances
Replace dated, inefficient appliances with reflective versions to add even more light to your kitchen design. Stainless steel refrigerators and stovetops offer a modern, sleek look while reflecting natural and artificial light perfectly.

Offering an extra surface for food preparation, storage and somewhere to eat, a kitchen island can be used to divide an open-plan room into distinct areas. To fit one comfortably, your space should be at least 3.5m x 3.5m with a metre gap between the island and base units, allowing room for cupboard doors and walking around.
At its simplest, the island can include a mix of cupboards, drawers and open shelving areas but adding a hob, microwave oven, sink or dishwasher will work the design to the max.
A hot water tap and pop-up electrical sockets for the worktop are useful extras. Good lighting is essential – consider recessed downlights, a stylish pendant light for decorative effect or both. Plinth lights create an atmospheric wash of light across the floor.
To make it a distinctive focal point, choose a contrast colour for the island or team natural materials such as wood and stone with steel, glass or granite. Incorporating curved ends will soften the shape.
