Even touch lighting or any number of light features can expand the feel of your kitchen.

Smaller kitchens have storage constraints. You can add additional cabinetry all the way up to the ceiling if you have more items to store.

If you prefer open shelves, you can organize your crockery and kitchen accessories onto shelves to add more character to your kitchen.
The flooring of any kitchen is really important as it adds a finishing touch to the space and draws attention. You can use the traditional Linoleum in checkerboard black and white pattern or add an entirely different aura with marble flooring.

The ambiance and size of the kitchen is greatly affected by the color of walls, appliances, counters, stools and even the dishtowels. Use different combinations to draw attention to various parts of the kitchen. Select lots of light colors like whites, beiges, natural woods, and yellows because they amplify light and make your kitchen appear larger. However, bold colors can add an interesting story to your kitchen space.
Add a see-through effect through objects by using glass. Visual expansion of space can occur when you use glass counter or tabletop, glass door cabinets or even glass kitchen doors, if any. Another way of adding up space is through using a mirrored backsplash or a mirror anywhere in the kitchen.
