Here’s how to keep a large kitchen feel­ing cozy and grounded.

1. LIGHT IT UP. Large-scale pen­dant lights are a huge help in an open kitchen. Smaller lights can be swal­lowed up by the space, while larger lights will help the space feel bal­anced.

2. WIN­DOWS AND ARCHES. Arched win­dows give the space a homier feel and pro­vide a bor­der along the win­dow’s edge. This pre­vents the walls from look­ing too ex­pan­sive.

3. COLOR PAL­ETTE. Keep the eye mov­ing and pre­vent guests from fo­cus­ing on any one thing by choos­ing a monochro­matic pal­ette.

4. CEIL­ING STA­PLES. Plac­ing iron or wooden rods across the ceil­ing will give it a false top, cre­at­ing the il­lu­sion that the room is smaller.
