When you're ready for a kitchen remodel or new kitchen install and your goal is to maximize the space in your kitchen but to retain as open a design as possible, you′ll want to give due consideration to an L-shaped kitchen design.
You can also use chalkboard paint to create a unique backsplash in your kitchen. The classic black chalkboard color works well with white or light-colored cabinets, while a lighter shade is recommended for dark cabinets. A chalkboard backsplash will provide a canvas where you can write down grocery lists, recipes or special notes for your family. Easy to wipe clean, chalkboard paint works well in a space where there tends to be grease and spattered food.
Just like the title of the popular movie "Under the Tuscan Sun" suggests, the Tuscan kitchen relies on a neutral palette while mixing in sun-warmed tones of gold and yellow.
If you have a really large kitchen and very high ceilings, you can go with a more bold hue such as dark gray or navy blue. To avoid highlighting any imperfections on your ceiling, it's best to use a flat finish, but some interior designers like to use a glossy finish for new homes to reflect light and add some dimension to the space.
