Good kitchen design ideas include painting the ceiling white for more reflective light and using similar colors and shapes to unify the design. Brass fixtures can add warmth, and subtle paint colors create a soothing atmosphere.
Salvaged materials give a kitchen design an industrial or rustic look. Vintage decorations add interest and a complementary paint color provides an attractive backdrop for collections hung on the walls. Open shelves also help display collections or china.
In small kitchens, a mirrored backsplash and simple cabinets can make the space seem less claustrophobic. Rich dark wooden furniture complements modern fixtures and copper accents draw attention.
