Brighter and bigger
When light colours are used in a kitchen, the larger it can appear. While it is not essential to install a light coloured countertop, cabinets, walls and floors in light hues do help to open up the space and make it feel more airy and welcoming. Keeping an especially light palette on backsplashes, walls, and floors definitely help to visually expand the space. You will find plenty of tips and tricks in our Decor - Kitchen section for tiling and other related project ideas.
