Many homeowners and designers agree that light yellow is a winning color in the kitchen. It is friendly enough not to raise any eyebrows, yet distinctive enough that it will complement most types of kitchen cabinet wood species. Like whites, the yellows reflect maximum ambient light, a plus if you have a gloomy townhouse or row house—yet without the hospital-sterile feeling that white convey.
A sleek, wall-mount vent hood over the cooktop trims the visual fat from a wall of cabinets, giving the room a greater feeling of openness. Minimalist vent hoods, like this one, require 30 inches between cabinets, about the same as an undercabinet hood, but give a cleaner, lighter look, a plus in a small kitchen.
