Place some incandescent lighting under your hanging cabinets and let it shine down your countertops that will increase the shadowing, giving it a visual movement. You can place lights under the base of your cabinets, too. But do not forget to install fluorescent lights that can increase the larger look of your kitchen.
Do away with that boxy feeling in your kitchen by using open storage instead of close cupboards. Also, if it is applicable, you can do away with an island. Consider the usage of the area. If you think that you can already work well without an island, then be it. Make your kitchen as open as possible with only the necessary things in it.

You can still use exciting color combinations and patterns in your walls. Bold colors can still be great in a small kitchen.
