Kitchen / June 13, 2018 /
Reflective surfaces, such as ceramic tile, marble countertops, and stainless steel, subtly amplify the effects of natural and artificial light, thereby making small kitchens seem larger. Plus, adequate lighting improves functionality. Undercabinet lights come in handy while cooking, and pendant lights add ambiance to meals served at an island or peninsula.
While red as a kitchen color is not for everyone, it should be considered if you want to add spark and spice. In a kitchen with plenty of dark colors, it can cut through the gloom. In a kitchen with fog-gray stainless steel appliances, it can provide a welcome focal point for the eyes. Going red is like taking that big leap off the cliff. If you are going to do it, make sure you do it well.
