Sleek & Sophisticated Kitchen

Paint your bulletin board to add a dash of colour.

This compact kitchen used to be crowded and dysfunctional, with a jumble of cabinets, little storage and a bad layout. A fresh coat of white paint brightens up the space; the island is placed to allow for easy traffic flow and cleverly incorporates a built-in microwave and dishwasher.
