Kitchen / June 26, 2018 /
Go for shiny surface finishes. These will reflect light and distribute it all around the room, making it feel much larger than it actually is. Opt for shiny splash backs, counter tops and high gloss cupboard doors and shelving. When choosing your flooring, whether it is tiles, wood or patterned, make sure it is laid length-ways down the kitchen. This will draw the eye and elongate the room. If you lay it sideways, the eye will naturally be drawn sideways and it will make the room feel much shorter and smaller.
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.
