White is your best friend in a small kitchen. It reflects light, enhancing the sense of space and making the walls recede. When you include white on cabinetry, countertops, walls, and the ceiling, you create a seamless space without edges or boundaries. Use several shades of white, and combine contrasting textures to keep an all-white room from feeling sterile. Recessed-panel cabinets and crown molding create subtle shadows that add interest, too.
Add storage to a small kitchen, without consuming valuable floor space, by recessing a shelving unit into the wall space between studs. These recessed shelves -- trimmed and finished to match the woodwork -- blend with the architecture. If you don't have space within your kitchen, look for a spot near your kitchen, such as a breakfast nook or hallway, to implement recessed shelves

Countertops are an investment because they must withstand wear and tear and last for years to come.
