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.
Small kitchens present tough storage challenges. Countertops often become crowded with appliances, but eliminating clutter can help any space feel larger. Use a corner appliance garage in your kitchen and reclaim lost storage space. The cabinet conceals coffeemakers, toasters, and other small appliances, while keeping them easy to access for food prep.
