Situations change every time, maybe your family is expanding, or you simply need more space in your kitchen without having to incur the costs of changing houses or building a complete addition; we got you covered.
Here’s what you need to achieve a more spacious kitchen.
- Start by getting rid of clutter
Sometimes the clutter lying around is what is making your space appear smaller. So, why not start by tacking away all the small appliances on your countertops.
You can also consider installing cabinets under the counters instead of drawers for extra storage under the cabinets, plus the cabinets also help hide away items out of sight, leaving a more organized space. More storage means less clutter.
- Consider a small bump-out
Sure, most bump-outs require you to get a permit, but you don’t have to incur the extra costs of a license if you bump out an exterior wall by just two feet.
According to building codes, you’re allowed to cantilever 2 feet of space without having to add more foundation.
Well, the two feet may seem like a small change, but if you try it, you’ll get the difference. A two feet expansion can host some cabinets, an extra appliance, or simply extra floor space.
- Grab space from another room
One of the most practical ways to expand your kitchen is by tearing down the walls to the next room, preferably a breakfast nook or the wall leading to the dining area.
Removing this wall not only opens up your space, making it airier, but you can also add an island, housing extra storage and acting as another dining area.
If it’s not too much, you can also consider other options, such as removing walls from an adjacent porch or maybe a mudroom; it will still work.
- Go for an open plan layout
Open plan layouts are prevalent in most modern American homes. So, if your home still has a closed-off kitchen, you can take down the walls and make your main living space one big room.
And if you need some form of partial enclosure, you can go ahead and add screens to separate your living room from your kitchen.
