This kitchen is not particularly large but the fact that it’s almost entirely white helps create the impression of a larger space. The wooden floors bring a refreshing contrast while the small and compact kitchen island sits in the center and complements the entire décor.
The kitchen is an odd room. It’s a space originally designed for cooking but, with time, it has also become a social space where friends and families spend time together, where they chat while someone is making dinner or where they simply gather to socialize. But a kitchen needs to be, first of all, functional. It’s a space where style comes second but, nevertheless, doesn’t have to be ignored. It’s a space where everything has to be perfectly balanced.
The first project on our list features a wonderful rustic backsplash made from the reclaimed wood of old shipping pallets. You can see this backsplash is a great DIY project opportunity for your kitchen because it uses inexpensive materials to create great looking results. If you decide to have this kitchen backsplash, locate some old pallets with boards in good condition, scrub the boards clean, and cut them into smaller sized pieces.
Even though this is an open floor plan kitchen so there aren’t any visible barriers between the spaces, it still has a compact look. The kitchen island is small and all the furniture comes together and created a cohesive and well‐balanced décor. The contrast between the crisp white details and the richness of the dark brown furniture is very elegant and beautiful.
If you want your backsplash to look as if it’s made of wood without actually using this material in the kitchen, the solution couldn’t be simpler: use peel and stick faux wood flooring strips. Working with them is extremely easy. Just measure the space, cut them to size and stick them onto the wall. Finish the project with your choice of paint color, apply two coats and enjoy the new look.
