But if you‘re always wishing you had more space to write on, it might be time for a chalkboard wall. Keep things classic and paint a black one if your kitchen has a lot of white or neutral colors, or add a pop of color in chalkboard paint on an accent wall in a white or neutral kitchen.

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.

A sink/cutting center — the zone for peeling, chopping and washing food — may sit cheek-by-jowl with the cooking center focused on the nearby stove. Drawer and cabinet space may be shared between centers, and so may the tools and items they contain. Don‘t worry! The focus is on function, not boundaries. So long as you can get the job done without taking a step, overlap between activity centers is the norm.

Pick neighbors on the color wheel; remember that warm hues pair with cold, and paint your upper cabinets one color and your lower cabinets the other.

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.

Macy Guillemot Kitchen Islands, 2017-12-07 09:15:33. 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.
