3. Conjure a sense of space and lightSlimline layouts can feel dark and cavernous, so it’s important to be thoughtful about your aesthetic elements. As mentioned above, replacing tall cabinets with open shelving can be a spiffy way to free up wall space without losing out on function. Also, going for high-gloss finishes and neutral colours can help bounce light and create luminosity.

I like how the pantry shelf almost seems like a display wall instead of storage. You don’t feel like your in a closet. Also the door across the pantry should have a large glass face to let in a lot of light. Pantry will still hopefully have a herb fridge under the counter if the budget allows it.
