Often overloaded, sometimes chaotic, small spaces tend to complicate things when it comes to keeping one’s house tidy and clean. It is easy to feel discouraged and to give up on decorating when it feels like there is nothing todo—the room still looks so tiny no matter what you do!

 

Do you recognize your kitchen in any of the above criteria?

 

This 2018 trend may come to your rescue! This year, we say goodbye to the cabinets above counters in order to keep only a few shelves or to put everything in the cabinets below. Your kitchen will breathe, look bigger, more modern, and if you play your cards well, could even have a little “contemporary farmhouse” look.

 

More Colours on the Bottom

The advantage of removing upper cabinets is that you can be fully creative when the time comes to choose a colour for the cabinets below! Go with vivid and saturated tones for an urban effect, or stay in the pastel shades for a Scandinavian feel. Keep in mind, the more your kitchen will keep its brightness, the bigger it will look.
