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 doors5-decor-tips-to-make-your-kitchen-look-bigger  5 decor tips to make your kitchen look bigger 5 decor tips to make your kitchen look bigger 1

This pulls the eye past the cabinet frames into the depths of the cabinets, so the walls feel farther away.

2. Go simple with furniture5-decor-tips-to-make-your-kitchen-look-bigger  5 decor tips to make your kitchen look bigger 5 decor tips to make your kitchen look bigger 2

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.
