Kitchen design rules

Here are some basic kitchen design rules that I’ve picked up along the way:

Stick to a palette of four colors

Use only one patterned element

Don’t have pendants and chandeliers cross in your line of vision

White subway tile is timeless

Shaker goes with every style

Generally floor should continue what is in rest of house

The space you are renovating/decorating should fit with style of the rest of the house

You can mix metals

Of course, these are rules that are not hard and fast, but they are a good place to start for most people.  But, once you learn the rules, then you can break them!
