Mission style strongly influenced another popular design aesthetic seen in kitchen cabinetry known as the Arts and Crafts movement, although it also combines other styles seen in Spanish and American Southwest regions as well.
Another idea for small kitchen cabinets is to combine appliances, storage and cabinet space. You can use cabinets to hide a low-profile refrigerator, stow a trash or recycling bin, or conceal a lazy Susan. For floor cabinets, consider using small cabinets to create a small kitchen island.
Some trademark characteristics of Shaker kitchen cabinets include flat paneled doors with rail frames, sturdy construction with quality wood, and utilitarian designs. In terms of materials, Shaker-style cabinets tend to use high-quality local American woods traditionally found in the northeastern United States. Examples include durable woods such as cherry, maple, hickory and quartersawn oak.
Lastly, add design touches that create the impression of space, like making sure the ceiling and cabinet tones match—if they contrast, the space will seem smaller. Also, lighter tones tend to create a more open, airy feel in smaller spaces.
