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.

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.

Both basics work to soften the kitchen and are a reflection of your personal design style, be it casual or formal, classic or modern. During the decorating process, remember to look up and assess your lighting situation.

To this end, consider a pullout pantry or extend a windowsill for an extra storage perch.

With a thoughtful design, you can also use the space underneath the seating for extra kitchen storage.
