Even a small kitchen can have storage and a nice flow, and for small spaces, a galley layout is a great option. For larger spaces, a center island or peninsula offers countertop space. Ideally, you’d have plenty of cabinets, drawers and shelves. When it comes to countertops, granite, wood and marble are elegant options. A mosaic tile backsplash can add vibrant color, and a wood floor finish is beautiful and easy to clean.
