Dark color schemes shrink an already small space and make it less inviting. Use soft shades on kitchen cabinets and natural light to visually expand a small room. BUT... if you want a warm cozy kitchen and yours is small, then go for the warm wood tones - sometimes getting what you love means breaking the rules!
This is a custom dresser we created for our In Frame Shaker Kitchen in Wimborne White and Blue Green project. This is made using the same maple construction which is then painted in the wimborne white colour. This design features a horizontal oak wine rack with a special floating bottle system. Below that you have a 30mm oak worktop and two large drawers with soft close and cupboards below that.
