Condos can be a convenient choice of residence because they often offer freedom from yard work as well as personnel who can respond to maintenance concerns. One drawback to condo living can be kitchen space, or rather, lack of it. However, there a few tricks and tips can make small condo kitchens seem larger.
One way to make the kitchen appear larger and more welcoming is to use lighter colors on the walls, floors, cabinets and counters. The light colors can be different shades that compliment each other.
Built In Storage
When you have a small condo kitchen, you'll need to maximize your storage space. Accomplish this with built-in cabinets where everything can be tucked away out of sight, reducing clutter and thus seeming to enlarge the space.
Use lighting to your advantage to make the kitchen seem larger. By using under-counter lighting as well as track lighting on the ceiling, you can make the kitchen brighter and appear more open.
