Kitchen / June 9, 2018 /
White is your best friend in a small kitchen. It reflects light, enhancing the sense of space and making the walls recede. When you include white on cabinetry, countertops, walls, and the ceiling, you create a seamless space without edges or boundaries. Use several shades of white, and combine contrasting textures to keep an all-white room from feeling sterile. Recessed-panel cabinets and crown molding create subtle shadows that add interest, too.
Faux painting techniques can add texture and dimension, as well as detail to your walls. These techniques work especially well in the kitchen. Faux techniques are affordable options that do not require you to hire a professional. Some popular faux painting techniques for the kitchen include stenciling, color washing and sponging.
