Kitchen / June 8, 2018 /
Reflective surfaces, such as ceramic tile, marble countertops, and stainless steel, subtly amplify the effects of natural and artificial light, thereby making small kitchens seem larger. Plus, adequate lighting improves functionality. Undercabinet lights come in handy while cooking, and pendant lights add ambiance to meals served at an island or peninsula.
Brown is considered earthy and evocative of the very place where your food comes from the earth, the farm. For those who are neutral-averse, brown almost becomes the New Neutral: safe. Brown lends itself to so many tasty pairings. This kitchen is expertly color-coordinated. The reddish-brown of the walls play well with the darker brown cabinets. Even the kitchen islands green fits into this family.
