The lighter hues of granite often pair well with dark island cabinetry and shelving, such as black paneling or deep cherry wood. On the other hand, a dark gray or black granite will create a dramatic effect when placed atop a white or light-colored wood unit.

Macy Guillemot Kitchen Backsplash, 2017-10-09 11:26:12. At the outset of your metal tile backsplash project, you‘ll want to determine the scope of the project. To estimate the amount of metal tile material you‘ll need, measure the square footage of the area in your kitchen you want to cover with the backsplash. Figuring out how much tile you‘ll need will give you a good indication of the overall budget, so it‘s an essential first step. Before calculating the square footage, you‘ll need to decide if you want a backsplash that covers the entirety of the wall space between your counters and cabinets or counters and ceiling, or just a portion thereof. The style that‘s right for you may be a more understated backsplash that only covers enough of the walls to prevent cooking and cleaning spatter, or it may be a grand affair that dramatically stretches from countertops to ceiling. Once you‘ve decided on the amount of coverage, mark the area off and measure the square footage.

Case in point: the galley layout, which shapes the kitchen into a narrow aisle. By situating the cabinetry and appliances against opposite walls, full-height cabinets are a good option for taking full advantage of your wall real estate.

Exchange pendant lights for recessed lighting and swap space-hogging appliances for models that can be tucked in drawers. Secondly, make a place for everything and put everything in its place. To this end, consider a pullout pantry or extend a windowsill for an extra storage perch. So that your tiny kitchen layout works double-duty, install a retractable eat-in peninsula that doubles as counter/dining space. Opt for chairs that also serve as seating in the living room. Every culinary headquarters needs a space for dining. Whether you have an island or a peninsula, utilize this surface in your small kitchen design for cooking prep, dining and as a buffet for entertaining. Bringing in an island on casters provides a mobile dining space when you need, it and it can be rolled away when you don‘t. Another idea for designing an eat-in space in your small kitchen is to install a built-in booth to accommodate the tight space. With a thoughtful design, you can also use the space underneath the seating for extra kitchen storage.

When it comes to making this decision, think of a pared-down silhouette such as a single pedestal base, like the mod tulip table. A built-in bench also needs a table to complete a cozy breakfast nook, so select a version with a small footprint rather than sturdy, stocky pieces. On the other hand, tables with straight edges and removable leaves can be shortened and eased against a wall for more space. Whatever the style, attaching casters to your table offers optimal versatility. Slide it alongside a built-in kitchen island to serve as a makeshift peninsula or whisk it to another room to allow for a free-flowing kitchen floor plan.

Color plays an important role in decorating the kitchen, especially if you bathe the room in a flattering tone-on-tone palette that gives the impression of spaciousness. For a bold and unexpected design touch, not to mention a departure from play-it-safe white, consider painting an accent wall in a vibrant hue. An attention-grabbing wall adds depth and style, and it will even highlight architectural elements particular to your room.

Many homeowners choose to make their kitchen peninsula a fully functioning feature of their kitchen design by adding cooking or cleaning functionality. Adding a stove, refrigerator or sink to a kitchen peninsula can create a more efficient "work triangle" in your kitchen, making cooking, cleaning and food preparation easier and more enjoyable.

Of course, soft colors, like a pale blue or muted gray, are also options for a kitchen that is furnished with darker details, like cherry wood cabinets and surfaces. Colors in this palette will soften the look of the kitchen, rounding out the entire feel of the room.
