Dark color 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. BUT... if you want a warm cozy kitchen and yours is small, then go for the warm wood tones - sometimes getting what you love means breaking the rules!
small kitchen. I love how light it is. now if only i could convince my husband wall can have color.
Lots of light, cork tile floor that's friendly on the back, natural soapstone countertops and Shaker-style cabinets make this kitchen a classic sure to stand the test of fickle trends and time. | Photo: Susan Teare | thisoldhouse.com
