Small Space, Yet High Utility
For people who think that nothing much can be done in small spaces these few ideas are for those confused minds, it is essential that you come out of the misconception that nothing much can be done. You can go for soothing colours like white or grey to give an illusion of spacious kitchen design, colours like red or orange cabinets may make it look smaller than it actually is. To add a pinch of glass to it, you can always opt for glass top or glass textured shelves over matte or veneer textured if you have the confidence to maintain it.
This is for those outgoing people who want to try and inculcate a piece of their personality into decorating their kitchen, then one of the most creative ways to accentuate it is by putting up patterned tiles, this can also ensure that most of your curry spilling adventures would not be evident, and also cleaning up tiles can get as simple as wiping it with a cloth. As the tiles would be the centre of attraction of the kitchen, it is important to underplay the color choice of the cabinets, you could always pick subtle or sorbet shades of color, to balance the enthusiasm around the tiles.
The One’s Wanting High Storage Space
For some people more than just how the kitchen looks, their main concern happens to be having more room for storage or more cabinet space. We totally understand their concerns, and do not want to leave them out, so this for those who don’t give to much importance to the looks, you can always have big shelves with big single doors and accommodate smaller cabinets or sections in it, to make it look neater and organized, that way you also don’t have to compromise on the looks of your kitchen completely, you could always invest in a tall unit or also otherwise called ceiling-high cabinets and pull out pantries for the look of it and also more storage. Pick eclectic colours like grey, black, navy blue etc. We finally decided on one of Cabinet Select’s top sellers for our RTA cabinet setup, and I have to confess, it was a lot less nerve-racking than I thought it would be.
The Breakfast Junkies
For those of you who believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, these is for those people, and it wouldn’t be wrong to say that you can invest in a breakfast counter in the kitchen. All you have to do is extend the counter of the kitchen and make it a breakfast corner, you can opt for a marble top or granite top slabs for the counter, and choose two high-rise stools for you seating, as the counter is kept simple, you can definitely play with the colours of the stools, a vibrant yellow or any other colour that would team up with the interiors of the rest of the kitchen.

One important rule to follow according to this rule is to make sure your sink, hob and the refrigerator are in a triangular order to avoid bumping into people when more than one is working.
For The Modern Twist Lovers
Another easy way to create depth in your kitchen design is by using frosted shelves or in other words, the translucent shelves.
