We recently found a good video on HGTV that we thought would be helpful to our clients who may own an older home with a smaller kitchen. Whether you're still living in the home or are planning on selling it, there are many ways to make the kitchen feel bigger without changing the home layout.

First of all, make the cabinets as long as possible. Extend them up to the ceiling. Then, take the fronts off the cabinets and replace them with glass. Making the cabinets taller gives you more storage, and the glass creates a sense of depth.

Choose a patterned tile for the backsplash. This also creates the illusion of more depth, which makes the entire kitchen feel wider.

Another thing to consider is your sink. Adding a farmhouse sink allows you to fit more in the sink without taking up any more counter space.

Rolling pantries are great as well. They provide a lot more storage than flat-faced cabinetry.

If you have any questions about other small renovations that can improve your home's value, please reach out to us. We would love to hear from you!
