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.

Schlesser advises consumers renovating their kitchens — or just looking to update the faucet — to visit a kitchen design showroom as well as the chain home stores to compare the products and "feel the difference." A good fixture should have substantial heft and the best materials even in the details: the latest ceramic disc valve rather than plastic to control water flow, and a heavy-duty woven sprayer hose instead of vinyl.

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.

Brown, CPO, owner of Impact Productivity believes small kitchens are spaces that can work, as long as you have a place for everything off the counter, leaving elbow room for the cook. "Otherwise making dinner becomes a stressful obstacle course punctuated by the crash of something being knocked off the counter," says Brown, who suggests putting your walls to work by storing your nicest pots and pans on pegs.

This is due to people scooting the chair back and forth to get on and off the chairs. What you can do to prevent this from happening is to put some rubber or plastic material under the legs. Another thing you can do is get some swivel counter chairs. This way, when getting off the chair, all you have to do is turn it. These types of chairs will vary in price but you should expect to spend $100 or more for a set. However, if you want to save money, you can always buy some cheap plastic ones. Or better yet, try to find them at garage sales. They may look a little beaten down but you can always fix them up. Getting the right counter chairs are just one of the many different types of furniture decisions you will have to make.

The options for kitchen wall decoration are just about limitless, but a good place to start is with one of the more common candidates for wall decoration: artwork. Kitchens aren‘t always thought of as primary spaces for the display of wall art. However, as in other rooms in the home, artwork displayed on kitchen walls can add tremendous visual interest and personality to the space.

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.

From stripes to checkered floors, there are many ways to update a space with paint and create a room that you, your family and even guests will never want to leave.

Painting stripes can be a long and tedious process, but the results are well worth the extra effort.

Again, you‘ll want to pair the seating with the floor plan while maintaining the "less is more" concept. For example, it‘s a smart idea to pass on bulky armchairs to line the dining table in favor of slender bistro chairs or barely-there Lucite chairs to eliminate visual clutter. Backless barstools are easily tucked under the kitchen island, while built-in or stand-alone benches conserve space by easing against a wall in the breakfast nook.
