You can also choose white or light colors for your cabinets and other furniture that are mounted on the walls. White the color white you will have a seamless space which looks clean and bright.
Another way to make your small kitchen look bigger is by organizing all your kitchen components in adjacent colors, or colors which are almost identical or have slight differences when put together.

Put a window that will let natural light in. Make sure that if you are going to put a blind or a curtain, the color will match the kitchen color scheme.

A single tall window that can be opened when you want to, can be dressed up with a blind or a curtain. Or you can eliminate the curtains or blinds by using smoky glass for your windows for privacy but still lets the natural light in.
To increase the height of the space, you should make the design to allow for the eyes to draw up. Attention can be drawn up by putting moldings on the gap between the cabinets and the ceiling. You can also put things up there like your wine rack or ceramic platters and install some dramatic lighting.

It is only through visualizing the space that can make your small kitchen space feel bigger. You can put panels or molding or put ornaments.
