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.
White also blends well in any setting and meshes with wood tones, so don’t be afraid to add a wood floor into the mix in your new kitchen.
A good tip about the size and layout of an open plan kitchen is to go to a kitchen designer early on in your planning stages. Visit a range of kitchen suppliers and talk to their designers. Your architect will give you a strategic design and the kitchen designer should add another layer to the plan, providing specific product lead information like the types of drawers, fixtures and finishes you can have.
