Because they tend to be slim, small spaces, galley kitchens occasionally run the risk of appearing dark and cramped. So lightening up the space with the use of light and bright colors can be a great start. Consider using whites, creams or light yellows for walls and backsplashes; try whites or light, natural woods for cabinets.

Already a classic countertop, backsplash and flooring mainstay, stone is now morphing into the most utilitarian tool in the kitchen — the sink. The same characteristics of strength and beauty that make stone a best-selling countertop material also make it a natural for sinks.

The front of a farmhouse sink can be left in its rough, natural state or it can be polished and even carved. The other option is a boxy sink fabricated from granite or other slabs — the best choice if you want to match your chosen countertop. Regardless of the design, though, your cabinets will require some extra reinforcement to support a stone sink, says Joe Percoco of Percoco Marble and Tile in Denver, Colo. He strongly recommends that the sink cabinet be reinforced to hold the extra weight, which can total more than 300 pounds. Joe says that one of their block sinks can require "four guys to get it into place." Make sure your cabinets have similar strength.

Maximize a minimal floor plan with seating and tables that suit your favorite room in the house without overwhelming it. The heart of every kitchen is the family table. Even in cramped quarters, the dining table, in any of its many forms, serves as a focal point. If you have an eat-in kitchen layout that can accommodate a traditional table, then be sure to pull out the measuring tape before choosing a table style. To prevent a boxed-in feeling, allow at least a 7-foot clearance for a table (3-1/2 feet on either side).

Unique color-matched finishes are available with custom cabinetry, along with hand-painted faux finishes, glass-paneled doors, and decorative wood carvings. Additionally, internal accessories such as lazy Susans, gadget garages, recycling bins and spice or wine racks can be added to meet the homeowner‘s unique functional needs. High-end hardware is also found on the highest-quality cabinetry, often made of unique materials and high-end metals.

If you‘re ready to purchase artwork—whether kitchen-themed or simply in a style you prefer that works well with the overall kitchen design—you‘ll have a vast array of options. Many homeowners choose kitchen wall artwork that‘s themed on cooking, baking or dining. For example, images or illustrations from vintage cookbooks can be a great kitchen wall decoration, and they can add some DIY flair to your kitchen space.

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.

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.
