There are Lots of style options to explore and choose from when designing a home. But some are more suitable than others in the case of certain areas of the house. For example, in the case of the kitchen, a modern or contemporary design would be the best. It’s always best to keep up with the technological improvements and changes and in order to do that without obtaining a décor where styles clash is to keep up with the styles as well.
The ’70s are alive and well in this retro kitchen, whose chartreuse color palette and simple cabinetry give off a groovy feeling. Should you have a small dated kitchen you’re not too happy about, try leaning harder into its era to really make the most of it. Rather than committing to painting your cabinets or choosing a crazy-colored appliance, infuse color through your accessories, like in this kitchen space, which features light blue and red accents.
We all know that small kitchens can be tricky when it comes to adding the unexpected. Think about painting or wallpapering the inside of your cabinets, or springing for a surprising backsplash. This pint-size kitchen really takes advantage of its wall space by adding in a metal rack above the sink for tools and utensils.
To cover the holes onto the wall from where the microwave was, we installed a classic white backsplash tile. An entry-level DIY job, installing backsplash tile is a comparatively quick project that can be done in as little as a few hours. We elected to get a super-classic white subway tile backsplash that will more than look good. Tile backsplashes serve a practical role, protecting the wall between the counter and upper cupboards. This is particularly important around the sink where many splashes occur, in addition to supporting the cooktop where you will find food and grease splatters. In a couple of hours, you are able to install the tiles then wait overnight and grout the second moment. It is so easy, you might find yourself looking for excuses to start up another tile endeavor.
Although this kitchen was up-to-date and functional when we started, there were a few regions where small improvements could make a large impact. As an example, the builder-basic, over-the-range microwave was practical but it crowded the range area. Simply by removing the microwave in the wall (and replacing it with a practical vent hood), the kitchen feels more open and the vent hood looks like a high-end custom made cabinetry bit. The classic subway tile backsplash gives a subtle contrast to the pristine white cabinets. And the walk-in cabinet has a fresh new look with more functional custom shelves.
