Anyone who likes to get creative in the kitchen will experience the woes of not having enough pantry space.
With that in mind, many now choose to include a pantry in the kitchen to maximize storage space to keep unwanted messes or clutter hidden.
A butler’s pantry serves as a kind of buffer between the kitchen and the dining room and is designed just for your convenience.

3 spacious kitchen islands
A kitchen island is a staple in any modern kitchen and is the perfect way to add extra counter space and storage even in the smallest spaces.
Kitchen islands also double as breakfast bars and are especially great if you have kids at home.
Some of the most common materials used for kitchen islands include marble, granite, quartz, and laminate.
If you are dealing with an exceptionally small space, you can also always go for a kitchen island cart on wheels that can be stowed away when more space is needed.
4 daring splashbacks
Kitchen splashbacks often don’t get the attention they deserve, but we’re here to change that! Backsplashes with bold colors, patterns, and shapes have been incredibly popular over the past decade and shouldn’t be going anywhere anytime soon.
A bold splashback doesn’t necessarily mean a vibrant color either – the latest splashbacks come in a variety of materials and textures, including polished mirrors, painted bricks, subway tiles, and even industrial-looking metals, such as steel or copper.
5 Farewell chrome, hello brass!
Over the past five years, we have seen a monumental increase in the use of brass around the kitchen. From cabinet knobs and handles to kitchen faucets and range hoods, brass is all the rage and has quickly become as popular as chrome, if not more so.

Brass also adds a much needed warmth to the space and creates the perfect contrast with almost any color in the kitchen.
