Many homeowners and designers agree that light yellow is a winning color in the kitchen. It is friendly enough not to raise any eyebrows, yet distinctive enough that it will complement most types of kitchen cabinet wood species. Like whites, the yellows reflect maximum ambient light, a plus if you have a gloomy townhouse or row house—yet without the hospital-sterile feeling that white convey.
Add storage to a small kitchen, without consuming valuable floor space, by recessing a shelving unit into the wall space between studs. These recessed shelves, trimmed and finished to match the woodwork, blend with the architecture. If you do not have space within your kitchen, look for a spot near your kitchen, such as a breakfast nook or hallway, to implement recessed shelves.
