Use a short backsplash. So you’ve carefully configured your storage, and now you’ve got some beautiful open wall space. To make that wall look 10 feet tall (even if it’s only 8), try using a short, minimal backsplash in a color that blends with the wall. The lack of an obvious dividing line between where the tile stops and the plain wall starts keeps the planes of the wall looking taller, so your open space looks positively vast.
Using slimmer lower cabinets for one area has its advantages. It opens a bit more floor space, which can make a big difference in a tight kitchen. It also reduces your storage slightly, but often the backs of deep cabinets are hard to reach anyway, so the shallower cabinets can be just right for everyday items.
Blank Canvas With Bold Accessories. Here’s another kitchen that smartly features bold colors in a way that’s easy and relatively affordable to change at any time. You could give this kitchen a completely different look just by swapping out the carpet tiles and counter stools.
Chalked-up concrete. Take sidewalk chalk to the kitchen with a writable cement backsplash, and have fun creating a rotating display of sketches, doodles and lists. A concrete floor can be treated the same way, depending on the finish used — so you can let the kiddos draw on the floor!
Be aware of the pros and cons. With expert planning, an L-shaped kitchen will allow for an organized and efficient workflow. And because you can separate work zones in this layout, it can easily and comfortably accommodate you and another user simultaneously.
Tomato red. A Campbell’s soup can made iconic by Andy Warhol is a perfect piece of art for this jazzy kitchen. Even the oven range knobs match the red thermafoil on these cheerful kitchen cabinets.
