Kitchen / June 13, 2018 /
Creating a kitchen scheme with little difference between the colors of walls, countertops, cabinetry, and woodwork makes a space appear larger than it really is. Here, the cabinets, trim, and backsplash are close in color value, a soft gray-green, so the eye does not trip over sudden shifts from dark to light. The effect is serene and expansive.
Instead of traditional closed upper cabinets, go for storage that feels airy instead of bulky. Only and repeat only, do this if you are not a tornado in the kitchen, and can keep everything neat and tidy. This is not just keeping things tidy and tucked away, although it is that too. It is about maintaining clean lines, without tons of overly decorative details. Avoid things like corbels and ornate cabinet pulls, and opt for a more minimalist look instead. The small metal hardware and modern cabinet fronts in kitchen keep things open and fuss free.
