Kitchen Makeovers / September 19, 2018 / Ethan Moore.
Using slimmer lower cabinets for one area has its advantages. It opens a bit more floor space, which can make a big difference in a tight kitchen. It also reduces your storage slightly, but often the backs of deep cabinets are hard to reach anyway, so the shallower cabinets can be just right for everyday items.
In this respect, and also because they often open into a larger room, L-shaped layouts offer a sociable arrangement: If you are entertaining, your guests can carry on a conversation with you and even wander safely into the cooking area.
Use panel appliances. Not prepared to choose compact appliances? You can still get a much lighter look.
Use shelf uppers. In a small kitchen, removing all the upper cabinets may not be a practical option, but you can always use as much or as little as you like to house just your most attractive everyday items.
