Kitchen / June 26, 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.
Many interior designers and homeowners use faux painting techniques to add texture and dimension to the walls. Color washing is one popular technique that can be used on any painted surface. Also known as glazing, this technique works well on walls, ceilings, cabinets and furniture, making it an ideal option for your kitchen. To create this look, a thin glaze or water-based wash is painted on top of the base coat to create subtle layers of color. Color washing can be achieved in a few steps and is a good technique for people who are just learning how to manipulate paint. Some designers like to also use color washing to create accent panels for artwork that can add a bit of drama to a room.
