In recent years, a popular trend in kitchen designs is to use different colours for the upper and lower cabinets. This is especially ideal for smaller kitchens as it makes the space appear larger than it actually is.

5. All Important Lighting

Allow lots of natural light to come into your kitchen during the day. This will make the space look fresh and also large. You should also install spot lighting in cooking surfaces and sinks and under-counter lighting to make sure that you have enough light in your cooking area.

6. No Dead Space

Every kitchen needs a lot of storage space. You should prevent any dead space from forming in this part of your home. You can make use of even small spaces to keep things that you need.

7. Simplicity in Black

Instead of the usual white, why not go for stunning black for your kitchen? Matte-polished cabinets and under-counter tops with a gloss lacquer finish look stunning and elegant yet simple. If you want striking and simple at the same time, this is a fabulous style to opt for.

8. Glass-Covered Upper Cabinets

Everyone dreams of a large kitchen but sadly, we cannot all have one. But you can make your small kitchen appear larger by installing upper cabinets covered in glass. The result is a functional yet simple and elegant cabinet to store whatever you need.

9. Two-Digit Kitchen Bar

A kitchen island is practical and can make your kitchen look great. A two-tier kitchen island is even better – you get a bar where you can serve drinks and snacks and a lower surface where you can prep your food. Simple yet handy – a unique idea that suits any kitchen.

10. Clutter-Free Kitchen

No matter what design style or colour you pick for your kitchen, if it is cluttered, it will not look good or feel good to work in. the secret is to have plenty of cabinets and shelves to keep utensils, cutlery, condiments, etc.  away so that you have a beat, clutter-free kitchen that always looks immaculate.
