To make up for lost island storage, new cabinetry stretches to the ceiling. Light walls serve as a quiet backdrop for strong architectural elements, pine cabinets, and an island with a 2 inch thick mahogany top. These elements, along with the cabinetrys distressed finish and the dark warmth of the beveled walnut wood floors, combine to create an old French feel, which blends with the rest of the home.
You will want the seats to be short enough so you can sit with your legs beneath the counter, but not so short that you sit too low to be comfortable at the counter. Give a narrow galley kitchen a focal point by painting the end wall a bright color. A contrasting and vivid hue will draw the eye through the kitchen and make it appear longer.
