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.
If you're not accustomed to mixing and matching materials, the first step is to look for inspiration elsewhere. By thumbing through kitchen design magazines and books and wandering through model kitchens at home centers and kitchen showrooms, you can train your eye. You can learn to appreciate how combining a wide variety of appealing materials, rather than just a few, can stimulate the senses.
There’s a growing trend for ‘broken-plan’ living, where the spaces are only partly separated –you may want to include a half wall between the kitchen and living space, or a pocket sliding door that allows you to divide off the dining room for more formal entertaining.
The best of small kitchen design focuses on function and flow. No matter the size of the kitchen, smart appliance placement can help create a comfortable, workable environment. Good design dictates that the refrigerator be near food preparation counters, and that sinks be placed next to dishwashers for easy loading. Meanwhile, stoves want workspace and handy storage for cooking accessories, cupboards for pots and pans, and drawers for utensils.
