7 Reasons to Try Open Shelving in the Kitchen
Natural elements of this kitchen—vintage wooden cutting boards, the Shaker-style barstools' woven rush seats, and a faded antique wool runner—warm up the cool space.
The key to incorporating a beachy vibe without feeling themed? Choose pieces with patina and sophisticated color schemes. The black-hued chowder house sign and porthole (lined with a photo of ocean waves) above the bar cart, for example, achieve a chic, not cheesy, look.
Brass bin pulls, butcher block countertops, and a copper backsplash behind the range add warmth to the new gray cabinets.

9 Ways To Make a Small Kitchen Feel Bigger
Generally speaking, vintage (and vintage-inspired) appliances have a smaller footprint than modern-day behemoths. They can also add decorative charm—and a welcome pop of color!—in a small space. This 50s-style Smeg refrigerator is just under 24" wide (compared to the 36" width of many standard modern models).

Yes, you can touch both walls when standing at the sink, but you can also store and prep a multiple-course meal for a (small) crowd, thanks to a 24-inch under-counter fridge, a 20-inch four-burner gas range, and ample granite counter space.

Creamy white-painted walls and whitewashed plywood floors (topped with three coats of polyurethane) make the small space feel more expansive.
