Having a kitchen design that really stands out isn’t about making sure that you have the latest counters or appliances, it’s about being creative and using what the kitchen gives you to take the design elements to the next level. Great kitchen design is all about having what you create be just as impressive as what its served on.
One of the easiest ways to improve kitchen design is paint and backsplash. Subway tiles provide an excellent relief against the counter, cabinets and walls while a good, bright paint color makes your kitchen feel larger, cleaner, and more welcoming. Window treatments that add to the natural light also are fantastic ways to boost the kitchen design.
These 15 photos show different types of kitchens but what’s unifies is how they all do the little things very well. Use them for inspiration on your next project.
