Starting with the paint, go for the bright colors like, white and creamy to give your kitchen the feeling of roominess. If you don’t like the idea of the bright colors, you can use bold colors, but make sure to apply the color you choose to everything in your kitchen like, the floor, finishing and walls.
When you choose your kitchen design, you will find many designs that fit small kitchens like, L shape design which is commonly used. Using bright lighting is a very important element to make your small kitchen look larger. You can install a big window with a simple curtain and let the sun light fill your kitchen and use some bright lighting fixtures like, under cabinet lights, spotlights, long pendant, etc.
Mirrors are the perfect solution to make any small space looks larger, try using a mirror as your backsplash and enjoy the light reflecting through them.

To save more place use single bowl sink instead of two bowls.
