An island is also a logical place to change countertop materials. You could, for example, use laminate counters throughout most of the kitchen and splurge on marble, granite or stainless steel for the island.
White is a great choice for a kitchen you want to appear larger. It’s brightness and reflective nature also feeds into the importance of light, which will be discussed further later on. One dark wall can also be used to your advantage as a means of giving a room that extra sense of depth. Neutral colours are the often the best choice as they are not heavy on the eye, giving a smooth finish. Various shades of one colour can also be used well, keeping everything in the one palette gives the sense flow and elongation, for example, shades or tones of grey.
Backsplashes are also points of departure. No, they do not have to be made of the same material as the countertops. You can have laminate counters and ceramic tile backsplashes. Or, if you prefer a single material, change its form, using seamless slabs of granite for counters and granite tiles for backsplashes, large tiles for the counters, smaller mosaics for the backsplashes.
Another standard that can be integrated into small kitchen designs is the center island, a staple in modestly sized and large kitchen layouts. The island can function as a food preparation, dining, or homework station. Counter peninsulas also do service for baking, dining, and food preparation.
