Everyone loves a big wide space but the reality is that many of us have to live with a not so big apartment and tiny rooms. And a small kitchen may not be in our dreams but it is yet possible to create a beautiful and efficient space. So small kitchens need smart solutions that not only save you some space but also creates an open and cozy atmosphere.
From color schemes to lighting fixtures, here you find some decor tips that you can use in your small kitchen to make it look bigger. Take a look and get to work!
1. Use cabinets with glass doors
This pulls the eye past the cabinet frames into the depths of the cabinets, so the walls feel farther away.
2. Go simple with furniture
Choosing a work island, bar chairs, or stools that are visually lightweight, such as metal ones. Clean lines don’t distract the eye, and the open tables and chair legs let you see the floor and walls beyond, making the room feel bigger.
3. Open shelving
Open shelves reduce visual weight and lend the illusion of a more expansive space.
4. Use neutral tones
White is your best friend in a small kitchen. It reflects light, which enhances the sense of space and makes the walls seem to recede.
5. Good lighting
The natural light enlarges any space and you have to make use of it. Although you can always complement it with a beautiful suspension lamp, as this one from DelightFULL.

Remodel a kitchen is not one of those things that can be done every year. Kitchen design projects are very expensive, so we tend to forget the idea of changint it everything every single year just to keep up with the trends.
However if your kitchen is a little bit outdated now and you need to change it, “Home Design Ideas” will reveal to you some kitchen trends for the promising 2015.
Because we all are done with the classic wooden kitchens (that can be relly great, but now it’s time for you to try something new).
Having closed cabinets in your kitchen was a common and trendy style, but in 2015 that will change. Builders and interior designers are pushing for the open shelving option. Why? Because is becoming fashionable to have everything on display, from dishes to pots and pans to gourmet oils and vinegars.
If you don’t like this kind of presentation the alternative is to have glass cabinets. That way you still can have items displayed and the traditional organization.
Important tips: make sure that your kitchenware matches your kitchen style and choose one or two materials for your new shelving.
A common sight on remodeled or new kitchens in 2015 will be black counters. Materials like black granite and quartz will be highly used to create a more sophisticated and modern look in kitchens around the planet
Dark painted kitchen
The days of white and white kitchens are over. Black, deep brown, dark red and copper tones are some of the colors that will be trendy in 2014. However, as you might have read in some post in this blog (click HERE and HERE ) dark colors make a space look smaller. To avoid that is recommended to paint just one wall in these dark tones.
To save some money you can do some of these things by yourself. If you have the skill you can build your own shelving and give a huge unique touch to your kitchen.
These are the kitchen trends for 2015. You can follow “Home Design Ideas” to get more tips and tricks to decorate your entire home.
