The all white scheme
Boost the lighting in your kitchen by going for a glossy white scheme. From the walls, units, cupboards up to the flooring and furniture, the all-white surface will bounce the light around the area. Balance everything out by bringing texture and a splash of colour to the room by placing plants, fresh herbs, and a touch of wood surfaces. Keep the area neat and uncluttered to achieve a minimalist look.


Have sufficient lighting
When natural light isn’t easily accessible in your kitchen, make sure the space is filled with sufficient light condition instead.
