Our main factors are going to be the paint of the walls, ceiling, cabinetry, and all together you should stay with light colors. Such as a creamy white, soft warm gray or even light gray and blue, this will create an enhancing sense of space and will make the walls recede.
In addition, you have to consider your tile. Either starting with a light tile or changing it to light-colored tile. Metallic or glass tiles can almost serve as mini-mirrors and help increase the light in the room. Having a color pallet with the right hues can help make your decision way easier and it will reduce any doubts.A monochromatic space has the advantage of self-balance ambiance and will actually make decorating easier to manage. If you want to create depth into your decor you can turn your attention to details such as texture, shine, shapes, etc.
Avoid Visual Clutters
Sometimes when you walk into a room you feel as if you can’t even move. Or it's hard to, because there are so many things around you. That’s what we called visual clutters, and a great way to avoid them is using open sight lines. Floating countertops and open shelving will help to make the kitchen larger, although if you don’t like open shelving you can also put glass doors. Which will allow your eyes to see through, which will trick your brain into thinking the room is larger than it actually is.
If your kitchen was designed with only one light in the center of the room, a classical chandelier or pendant light will compliment it nicely. If your lighting is too low or high it can make obscure spaces, which will reduce space in sight. Choosing the proper light for your kitchen, size, color, brightness and location will help you reduce the darks spots that are making your kitchen look smaller. This will help you create the ambiance of a larger well-thought kitchen.
