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.
You know the drill: whiter=brighter. Keep everything white, then add in pops of color from your serving ware, or even a SMEG fridge. Think rustic and modern can not be mixed? This raw wood island is proof they totally can.
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.
