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.
Line the back of shelves or a backsplash with beaded board to add cottage style texture to your kitchen. Paint the beaded board a fun color that matches the rest of your kitchen, and be sure to finish it with a waterproof sealant if you are installing it behind or around a sink. Use windows as a spot for pattern and color in a kitchen where neutrals reign.
