The days when your choices for appliance design were "stainless steel and more stainless steel" are long gone. Now, retailers and online specialty outlets carry a range of small appliances in bold colors and unique designs, with bright yellows and greens, reds, oranges and blues particularly common sights in contemporary homes. Because of their low profile, accessories like these in bold colors can pair with just about any kitchen style, from traditional to modern. For the more adventurous homeowner, large appliances are also available in a range of bold, retro colors and styles—ranges and refrigerators in bright reds, fuchsia and other playful colors aren‘t wholly uncommon.
A convenient way to think of kitchen design style is to start by dividing the many styles available into two main categories: traditional or modern/contemporary. Each of these categories contains many subcategories and offshoots, but by first identifying which of the two appeals most to your personal style, you‘ll go a long way towards narrowing the list of styles you‘ll have to choose from.
Galley kitchens take their inspiration from the small, utilitarian kitchens found on ships and aircraft. Generally speaking, these kitchens feature two walls, with a narrow passageway located between them. In a traditional galley kitchen, the passageway measures anywhere from 4 to 6 feet wide, although larger galley kitchens may now expand that width and even feature kitchen islands for added seating, storage and food preparation space.
Paint Your Ceiling—Painting your entire kitchen a crispy, airy blue might feel too overpowering, but just painting your ceiling could really open up the room and add an ethereal feel. The ceiling is also a good place to introduce a bold color that wouldn‘t otherwise work in the room.
