Kitchen / June 13, 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.
Certain elements, like backless barstools, wire kitchen islands, or glass pendant lights for example, leave sight lines open and do not trip up your eye as you move around the room. Floating countertop, and mid century stools, do just that. We talk a lot about using reflective mirrors strategically, but stainless steel appliances, glossy floors, satin paint, glass tiles, and sleek cabinets can also do the trick.
