If you're looking to expand the apparent size of a galley kitchen, you'll want to start from the ground up. Ensure that floor boards run lengthwise, and if you feature tile on a backsplash, arrange it in the opposite direction, so that it's perpendicular to the floorboards; this helps create the illusion of depth. Another suggestion is to raise cabinets off the floor in order to further suggest a larger, taller space.
Tile floors or backsplashes of slate or granite in geometric patterns are common, as are subway tiles used for simple, elegant backsplashes. Finally, furniture choices can contribute greatly to any modern kitchen design.
Modern design started around World War I and generally featured flat surfaces, geometric forms, and little or no ornamentation or adornments. Modern kitchen cabinets, for example, are often defined by a sleek, angular and simple design, featuring little or no hardware, flush doors and flat surfaces.
