Kitchen / June 26, 2018 /
A trick of great kitchen designers to use shallow cabinets. You are still getting a key part of a kitchen which is essential to the look, without compromising on space. An added trick of installing lighting underneath the top cabinets and just above the kick board will bring more light to this area. Curves in the kitchen really can be your best friend. Curved cabinets and surfaces create soft lines and can open up small, tight spaces more. It might seem like only a few inches, but the difference it will make will seem much more.
A sleek, wall-mount vent hood over the cooktop trims the visual fat from a wall of cabinets, giving the room a greater feeling of openness. Minimalist vent hoods, like this one, require 30 inches between cabinets, about the same as an undercabinet hood, but give a cleaner, lighter look, a plus in a small kitchen.
