Extending cabinets to the ceiling is the greatest approach to make the most use of available space in a kitchen. But when the time comes, it might be a hassle to retrieve the items you’ve stored up there. Install a library ladder, taking inspiration from the studio kitchen of designer Reena Ravi. This rail may be rolled out of the way when not in use because the brass one bends around the exterior of the cabinets.

8 Select a Basic Backsplash

Although Liz Lange, a fashion designer and owner of Grey Gardens, doesn’t have a huge kitchen, she wanted it to seem as light and open as possible. “Rather than going prewar in its aesthetic, we gutted it and went very clean and modern,” she explains.

9 Customize IKEA Cabinetry

15 Utilize Every Square Inch of Available Space

Wit & Delight creator Kate Arends gave up wall space in her Minnesota kitchen to accommodate the large picture windows, but the natural light and views of the surrounding forest made the space worthwhile. Arends maximized the bottom cabinets by making them extra deep and suspended pots and pans from the dropping ceiling to compensate for the shortage of wall space.
