Giving the eye an vertical path to follow increases the apparent height of the ceiling, thus lifting the lid off a boxy room. Here, molding atop the sleek wood cabinets draws the eye upward. If there is a soffit above your cabinets, framed prints, decorative plates, or large ceramic tiles achieve a similar effect. For the greatest sense of expansiveness, choose objects that harmonize with the background rather than stand out against it.
Blue barely makes the best kitchen colors list. It has traditionally been considered a downer color, not conducive to stimulating ones appetite.

In limited amounts and with just the right tone, blue can give your little kitchen a retro sweet, cottage-y appeal.
