Lighting is a particularly key feature of open kitchen designs, since open designs tend to incorporate more space than their closed-in counterparts. Finding the right balance of coverage, style and function can be a challenge, but if you focus on the three basic lighting types—main, decorative and task—you should have no problem lighting your open kitchen design. For main lighting, consider a track that encircles the room or runs through the middle of the entire design. A chandelier or large handing pendant can light the dining room space. Task lighting is a great idea for sink, cooking and food prep areas. And finally, decorative lighting can be a great feature for the tops and bottoms of cabinets.

The uniformity of monochromatic colors creates the impression of spaciousness in a tight space. Tying your small kitchen‘s style to that of the adjoining room, whether by flooring, cabinetry, or color, is another tip for making the compact space appear larger through a sense of unity.

Mixers, blenders, toasters and other small appliances are ubiquitous in kitchens. As important as they are functionally, they can be just as effective when it comes to your kitchen‘s design style and appearance.

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.

Ivonne Caillauda Kitchen Backsplash, 2017-10-24 11:00:10. When you‘ve determined the surface area you‘ll need to cover, it‘s time to think about the materials you‘ll use. Possibly the simplest backsplash option of all—and one of the cheapest, as well—is to use paper for your backsplash. Now, you may be thinking paper doesn‘t sound terribly durable, and imagining the disastrous results of food spatter on it—but fear not, the paper you‘ll use will rest under a protective coating of clear shellac or varnish, so that it‘ll wipe clean easily, and the paper will always be protected. In terms of the paper itself, heavy-duty card stock with interesting designs or colors, or even old maps, newspaper clippings or magazine cutouts can be repurposed to great visual effect. The paper you choose should be applied to a thin layer of plywood that can be nailed to the wall, then protected with a clear coating.
