You want to start a kitchen home improvement project on your Halifax home, but you can’t add many square feet to the kitchen’s size. Don’t despair. There are many of ways to optimize, and ways to make the cooking area look and feel larger than it is.
Renovating a cramped kitchen does require careful planning . Mistakes are more noticeable than in a big kitchen, so layout elements need to work together. You also need to be realistic about how your kitchen will be used. Reserve it for cooking and eating – the kids will have to do their homework elsewhere, and you’ll have to find another location to sort through the mail.
Storage Space – In a small kitchen you need to begin by planning about how to store everything you need.
Remove walls – Opening up the space shared with a dining room or living room will make the kitchen feel larger . You can separate the spaces by installing a breakfast bar with stools. If you can’t remove the wall altogether, you can create a pass-through window between the rooms.

Double-duty Table—Instead of an official table, install an island that can double as a table, or add a fold-down table to the end of the counter. It can lie
Glass – Glass cabinet doors can make the space feel more open. The kitchen’s doors can also be clear , or you can create a breakfast nook by cantilevering out a big bay window. Mirrors and glass-surface counters or table tops can also help make the space feel more bigger .
Kitchen Cabinets – Don’t have the cabinets go all the way to the ceiling; it can make the room feel cramped . Instead you can use the tops of cabinets for storage of things you don’t use every day or add windows to let in more light.
