7 Design Tips That You Need To Know For Your Kitchen

1. Colour to Match

The colour scheme of your kitchen should match that of your interior design, including lighting.

2. Colour for Space

Dark colour schemes shrink an already small space and make it less inviting. Use soft shades on kitchen cabinets and natural light to visually expand a small room.


3. Wider Walkways

Paths through a kitchen should be at least 91 centimeters wide. Within the cooking zone,they should be 106 centimeters wide for a one-cook kitchen, and 121 centimeters for two. When planning, adjust kitchen islands and peninsulas accordingly.

4. Light from Above

Kitchens lack overhead lighting. Lighting from behind you will cast a shadow on the workspace when you need it positioned to fall in front of you. Under-cabinet lights are more functional because they shine directly on countertops.
