Kitchen / June 19, 2018 /
Open shelving is another great way to make the most of a small kitchen. However, it must be kept minimal and tidy. Clutter on display is going to make the room feel crowded. There is an old saying of a place for everything and everything in it is place. Storage is essential to small kitchen living. If you can create dedicated space for items and activities it will make the space look, and feel, much bigger and you will be able to better utilise the space.
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.
