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.
Skip wall cabinets and opt for open shelving (in clean, unfinished wood) for a more modern feel. Add a matte black KitchenAid, and we are totally swooning.
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.
