Backsplash: The most obvious use for tile in the kitchen is for a backsplash. The choices for tile have come a long way and now include modern materials like glass and metal. Glass tiles, made from recycled glass, come in finishes ranging between glossy to flat. Creating an entire glass backsplash or just adding a few intermittently with ceramic tiles produces a sparkling accent to the rest of the kitchen. Glass tiles paired with large windows or glass-front cabinets put more focus on the translucent effect. Metal tiles can be found in stainless steel and copper. With the popular stainless steel appliances and countertops, metal backsplashes in various textured tile designs creates a perfect match.
So you no longer have to add decorations in your kitchen. Thus, you get to use them often and they aesthetically pleasing to the eye. You can also opt to put an island in your kitchen.
Next, you are going to want to bring some light into your small kitchen. Most small kitchen design problems stem from the fact that there are no windows in the kitchen. Thus, it makes the small kitchen look very closed in and very dark. A good way to fix this problem, as well as a good idea to make it look bigger is to add light wherever you can. The best way to do that is to mount small lights under your cabinets. These are lights that you are not going to be able to see, but the affect that they have on your kitchen is going to be huge! Not only that, but a bright kitchen is a cozy kitchen. Since you have a small kitchen anyway, that is a good look to go for. Most small kitchen design ideas are centered around this very theme.
