Make Your Kitchen Appear Larger

Don’t have the money to expand your kitchen? No problem. Creative solutions like removing cabinet doors to expose glasses and dishes can give your kitchen a more open feel.

“The average person opens their kitchen cabinets 15 to 20 times a day so having this area in order will go a long way to creating a clutter-free kitchen that is a pleasure to relax in,” said Graham of updating and refurbishing cabinet doors.

Paint the back of the cabinet a fun color like aqua or orange to make the space pop. If you don’t want to remove your cabinet door, opt for a glass door that exposes a bit more light, while still keeping dishes in their place.
