Maybe you’re looking for just a tiny bit of boldness to give your kitchen some personality. If so, consider taking a pointer from this fun and funky kitchen, which pairs white walls with emerald cabinets. The color pops, but isn’t so crazy that the owners will regret the paint job in a year’s time.
If you’ve run out of wall and counter space, look up. Your ceiling is often untapped (and full of potential). Try a heavy-duty ceiling pot rack or try a DIY project like the owners of this small kitchen who created a hanging bar. Apartment Therapy writer Nancy Mitchell lives in a small studio in Manhattan with very limited counter space. She remedied that by bringing in a compact rolling cart which acts as an island.
Ultra glossy kitchens tend to look a bit Euro-mod, but there’s no denying the reflective (read: light-bouncing) properties it offers. This inviting space brings shine thanks to a glossy subway tile backsplash. When you’re a renter, it’s not always feasible to add on-the-wall shelving, even if they are incredibly useful for expanding your surface area. One of our Design Editor’s go-to solutions to this? A cheap baker’s rack, like this one from Target.
