1. Pop Those Colors

The kitchen gives you a place to really go bold with pops of color. With limited counter space you have to make your accessories count. Don’t forget that you can also bring in different colored lighting pieces as well!

2. Use Natural Textures

With most kitchens having wood cabinets it easy to forget that you can play and design off those textures. There’s no need to just slap a coat of paint on the cabinets and call it a day. If that’s how you planned it, there’s no problem with that, but don’t forget that you can expand on the natural wood grains and textures to bring your kitchen to the next level.

3. Play With Patterns
