Take the cafe curtain off the window, add under-cabinet lighting, and paint those oak cabinets glossy white! You can even add a mirror over a window-less sink to bounce the light around. The lighter and brighter your kitchen, the roomier it will feel. So all white is not your thing? No problem — but try to pick a color and stick to it. If your cabinets, walls, and countertops are all varying shades of gray, for example, the space would not feel chopped up by a countertop that is a strong contrast to the woodwork above and below.
Neon yellow and green have been getting lots of attention in the fashion world in the last few years, and these shades are now taking their place in the kitchen as well. Electric and often shocking, these bright shades can really wake up a cooking space, but they work best in small doses. Try a citron, chartreuse or lime in your pantry, inside your cabinets or on an accent wall. If neon paint colors feel too dramatic, there are many neon kitchen accessories that will bring pops of these fun colors into your kitchen.
