Stick to a single style and pattern. Don't change it now and then. Go for monochromatic palette. This can also be termed as a continuous pattern. You can add personality and interest to a kitchen space even with monochromatic palette. Black and white pattern across a counter is graphic and unexpected. Warm up a neutral kitchen by using color shades and textures of gray, ivory and cream. Use bright pop ups of lemon and turquoise on grey or white palette to charm up the kitchen look. If you select upon modern theme for your kitchen then choose on a bold color and high glossy finish. Cherry red and vanilla white is one of the best combination for a kitchen. This combination would take kitchen to a daring high.
We had decided to open up the kitchen - that it would only have two walls with an island that was filled with drawers - big drawers with heavy file cabinet drawer slides (The things that filing drawers use to pull in and out smoothly while supporting the heavy load of paper, files and books.) They can support over 100 pounds each and we thought they would work fine to support drawers that held large stand mixers, iron pots and pans as well as dishes. We built drawers that were tall enough to hold big bowls and other tall things that are used in the kitchen. We also made drawers that were deep enough to hold baking pans and all sorts of things for cooking. There were even spice drawers with angled racks in the drawer so the labels could be easily read.
If you have an older house with an enclosed kitchen, you may even wish to remove the door or widen the entry to make it feel less closed off from the rest of the house. Modern kitchens are social centers, after all, not just places to cook food. Need more countertop space? Before you install all new ones, think about reorganizing your existing appliances and storage, or bringing in a cart and butcher block. Those methods can do a lot for your kitchen without the need to tear things out.
We had the contractors start the parade - looking at the layout of the kitchen and the cabinet construction, the overall construction of the house and the kitchen in particular. The bids came in - slowly at first and then in a deluge. The prices were astounding. This was in the early 1980's and the low bid was $12,000, and that was for a new sink, paint and "new cabinet facings" (new doors on the existing cabinets!) Now the house was not inexpensive, but these prices were out of sight! Times were much like today, many people out of work and contracts were few and far between.
There are lots of minor things you can do to improve a kitchen that's not terribly friendly to work in. Simply moving the appliances or changing the way you store things can be a big help. Consider taking the doors off the cabinets and leaving them open. You'll be surprised by how much it opens up a room. A new coat of paint can change how open or closed in the kitchen feels, as can choosing to move some items to a pantry or other storage area instead of leaving them in the kitchen proper.
