When you are changing the interior design of the kitchen you may be able to make your kitchen look bigger or smaller all based on the type of paint you use. For example, if you want to expand your space then use a paint with cool, light colors. Even dull colors with very minimal contrast can make the kitchen feel a bit bigger.
If you want to make the space seem smaller then you want to use warm dark colors or even bright colors. To make a ceiling seem lower use warm colors and dark tones and the opposite for heightening a ceiling use cool colors and light tints. Shortening a room, use dark colors, lengthening a room is cool, light colors and to hide a spot that you don?t like use the surrounding color already there.
Changing the floor can be very important to the look of the room. You may want tile or stone or even wood flooring. Countertops should match the color scheme of the kitchen and lighting is an important part as well. Even using new hardware can add a new scheme to the kitchen. You don?t have to tear your kitchen apart to get a new look, a fresh coat of paint, new hardware and new appliances and whole new look.
