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.

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.

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.

In general, traditional kitchen design styles reflect a period of historical inspiration, and they incorporate a variety of looks including Arts and Crafts, country/rustic and Old World/European. Traditional kitchen designs tend to feature more adornment and decorative flourishes, like cabinets with intricate woodworking or paneling, hardware and accessories inspired by their respective historical periods. In some cases, they may feature distressing or other weathering techniques to inspire a more cozy and inviting design aesthetic. Color palettes for traditional kitchens tend to feature neutral and lighter colors, as well as historic or period colors that contribute to a warm and welcoming feel.

But for families who want to have some fun with their kitchen decor, decorative painting is the way to go. These can be in an array of distinct art styles, with the common theme threaded throughout. This way modern, classical and even DIY styles can be featured on one wall, combining to create a diverse and interesting design.

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.

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.

Because visual clutter can minimize an already small space, approach your small kitchen redesign with the charge of keeping things simple. Attain simplicity by keeping countertops clutter-free. Take advantage of unused space, like a bare wall, the alcove above the cabinetry or an empty window sill to add decor sparingly. Uniformity also produces simplicity, as evidenced in a monochromatic color palette and grouping similar items. For example, create visual continuity by pairing like items such as a collection of decorative plates, a set of storage baskets or a grouping of photos in coordinating black frames.
Pansy Godefroy Kitchen Islands, 2017-11-12 07:22:41. Home goods stores are ideal for choosing ready-made kitchen islands, like a butcher‘s cart, that will easily fit into a small kitchen space. But repurposed items, like a small desk, bookshelf, dining table or crates can also make an interesting, unique kitchen island. Simply choose the item with which you will be working and top it off with your desired surface, like a stainless steel countertop. Bookshelves or openings in crates can be used for storing kitchen items, like appliances and cookbooks.
