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.
Do not let the connotation of industrial turn you off. It can look totally elegant and clean (start with some fresh flowers on your island), and a stainless steel backsplash will take all those oil splatters like a pro.
This kitchen is a lesson in how gray can be cool and calming, rather than dull. The minimalist cooking space blends statement lighting with a geometric backsplash to keep it feeling fresh, modern, and fun.
