All homeowners spend a significant amount of time in their kitchen. A huge factor of enjoying this space is whether it’s cramped or spacious.


Today we are going to go over some options you can choose in a remodel that will open up your kitchen and make it more inviting for you and all of your guests.

Here is a list of ideas to get the ball rolling in what you can do to open up your kitchen!

  • Tear walls down

  • Install windows

  • Lighten the ceiling to lighten the look and raise the spaciousness

  • Install a skylight

  • Select lighter cabinets, paint color, backsplash tile and/or flooring

  • Create wider walking spaces

  • Open the kitchen to the family room

  • Add a barstool area to better suit entertaining and casual family meals

  • If space allows install sliding glass doors to a deck to really bring the outside in.

This is not an extensive list, but it gives you some ideas of what you can do in your own home. When you widen up the kitchen, you can display your beautiful cabinets, countertops, backsplash and flooring and tuck away the larger items (refrigerator, oven and dishwasher) to make the kitchen appear larger.

Having a larger entrance also makes the kitchen more inviting to everyone that comes to your home! Are you ready to start your remodel? Give us call at 210-680-5626 to get started ASAP!
