This little kitchen does an impeccable job of mixing traditional elements like the black accent wall, rustic stools, and modern marble island. In this super small kitchen, a retro menu board adds a fun “greasy spoon” diner vibe to the wall. It adds just the right amount of kitsch without going overboard.
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.
As for the fixtures and appliances, some models are preferred. An under-mount sink is preferred to a drop-in model because it’s more practical and hygienic. Stainless steel appliances are usually chosen and they also usually feature similar finishes and designs. This detail helps with the overall décor that needs to be minimalist but still cohesive and stylish. But to better understand this style and to also find some inspiration for future projects, we have prepared a series of examples.
