With that in mind, we have prepared some ideas to make your kitchen beautiful and full of personality. Check it out!


Color Palette

When it comes to small kitchens, the best bet is on light tones, aiming to increase the feeling of space and luminosity. But if you prefer dark tones, the best use of them is in small quantities and in the details, in order to “camouflage” the kitchen and give a feeling of depth.



When choosing the refrigerator, microwave oven, stove, oven, coffee maker, and purifier (hoods or hoods), buy models made from the same material and in the same shade. It is important to always maintain harmony, regardless of the shades chosen. For example, if the refrigerator is made of stainless steel, the other products must also be made of stainless steel. Got it?



Lighting is a crucial factor to ensure a pleasant and receptive environment. During the day, light colors allied to natural light coming from the windows is an interesting combination, but from dusk to night it will be necessary to use light fixtures.

Choose light fixtures that are as beautiful as they are functional and that match the decoration. As for the lamps, the Led lamps emanate a strong and clean focal light, making it easier to perform daily activities at any time.


American kitchens do not have walls or partitions, because the intention of this construction is to integrate environments. However, it is possible to imply a separation by sectors.

The pendants placed above the counter are one way to do this. Usually, two are enough, however, the quantity varies according to the proportions of the surface below them.

Other ways to do this are by using different flooring, furniture colors, and wall paints.

Functional furniture

When we think of American Kitchens, the first piece of furniture that comes to mind is the counter. However, other furniture is just as important. Cabinets, for example, will be used to store food, utensils, and even appliances. And to avoid disturbing the circulation, they can be made with sliding doors.

Planned furniture adds value to the space, meets your needs, and can be multifunctional, all you need is to develop a complete and detailed project with the help of an experienced professional.

With these tips, it will be much easier to make your American Kitchen a beautiful, practical, and organized space.
