A modern kitchen, whether it’s part of an open plan or if it’s a separate area, would usually have a simple and clean décor. The furniture would have simple lines without unnecessary ornaments or decorative details. Also, special attention is usually given to the way the space is used and organized. It’s why modern kitchens have lots of storage space, most often hidden in unexpected places.
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.
When you have just a few cabinet doors and a small stretch of countertops, your best bet for making a decorative splash just might be your refrigerator. This homeowner didn’t let size get in the way of showcasing artwork in this teeny kitchen. In fact, he took the opportunity to let oversized art shine.
In a narrow space, it’s sometimes best to opt for a simple color scheme like this to keep the look as airy as possible. The chevron detail keeps the palette consistent, but adds extra visual interest. The gold foil decals adorning these cabinets are an unexpected choice, yes, but a worthwhile one. They add a fun glamorous touch, but require no commitment—if you get bored simply peel them off and start fresh.
