How to Remodel a Small Kitchen.
A small kitchen can have its pros and cons just like a remodel. There are many benefits, including a lower cost. You will spend less money if you have less space than if you had more. A small kitchen is more useful because everything you need to cook and prepare food quickly can be found within reach. There are always cons. You won’t find the “hangout space you want” in this place. It can feel cramped if you have a large family.

Everybody has their own definition of a small kitchen. These tips will work in any size kitchen. Are you ready to remodel your kitchen?

White cabinets are the best choice. But you don’t have to choose white cabinets. Think light taupe, antique white, and dove grey. White will make your home seem larger than it is. You can add color to your space by painting the lower cabinets a different color while keeping the upper cabinets white. This will open up your space.
You can make the space seem larger by using lighter countertops, but it is not necessary to use white on white. Keep it light, but don’t be afraid to mix it up.
2. Wide Tile
A backsplash can make your kitchen pop! It’s also a great way to make it seem larger. A horizontal tile such as a subway tile or a wood-look tile will draw the eye to the center of the space and create a feeling of greater width.
3. Let the Space Open!

A hanging pot holder is another option! Pots and pans can take up much space in your cabinets so putting them out there in the open will allow you to have more room for other items. Make sure you love how they look!
Another option is to place small cabinets high up on top of regular cabinets. These cabinets look great but can be difficult to reach so you will need to install a rolling ladder (if available). These can be a great addition to your kitchen’s style!
