Storage space in a kitchen can seem like a secondary consideration until you think of all the food items, dishware, pots and pans, and seldom-used appliances that need a place to be stored when not in use. Luckily there are many places to sneak functional storage space into your kitchen pantry, ways to make kitchen storage more efficient and ideas for laying out a kitchen for the best workflow. And sometimes the easiest way to make the room more spacious is to keep countertops organized and clutter-free so you have a usable space for food prep.
With all the different kinds of paint on the market, choosing a color or shade can be overwhelming. Generally speaking, white and off-white are the most popular kitchen color ideas according to the National Kitchen and Bathroom Association. The good news is that paint color is easily changeable so if you want a bold statement wall then paint is a better way to do that than tile (which is more expensive and harder to swap out). To start, here are 10 things to think about when considering color in your kitchen (and if you have never painted before check out our primer on things to know). Warmer colors like red are thought to stimulate appetite while white offers a clean, fresh aesthetic. Choosing a monochromatic color palette, where you base the whole color scheme off of one main color, is another popular option.
Marble basics Natural stone is a gorgeous material that instantly elevates the visual appeal of any space in the home - especially when it comes to the kitchen. Often used for benchtops and splashbacks the variations of veining in marble can add a range of different looks to your home. In this Bondi duplex the marble splashback and benchtop contrast beautifully with timber cabinetry.
Consider having a shorter splashback in lighter work areas and a full-height splashback behind the cooktop (this will save on cost considerably if you have opted for stone, for example) and also looks quite smart.
Keep it clear Another option, if you have got a good view outside, is using clear glass for your splashback and transforming it into a window. Visually, it allows clean sightlines to the outdoors which is great for improving natural light within the home and taking advantage of any scenic views you may have, like in this family-friendly Californian bungalow. Just be mindful that anyone on the outside will also be able to see inside, so make sure you weigh up the pros and cons — screening plants for privacy can be a good way to have the best of both worlds.
If you always find yourself forgetting your grocery list or bits of your family schedule, this idea is for you. This is one of the most customisable kitchen splashback ideas on our list, simply due to the fact that you can draw on it with chalk!
