When designing a single-wall kitchen, be sure to properly consider how you will move around the space. In all likelihood, you'll be incorporating a countertop, refrigerator, stove and dishwasher. That means you will want to consider the route you will most likely take to use these various areas and appliances. For example, it makes sense to place the dishwasher next to the sink for easy loading.

One-wall kitchen designs can incorporate a wide range of color palettes and textures. For example, consider pairing dark wood cabinets with white marble countertops and a stylish gray backsplash. You can also choose white cabinets, green granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.

Modern variations of a one-wall kitchen layout include a kitchen island, allowing for a galley-style walkway between the wall and island. Use kitchen island cabinets for storing large appliances and other kitchen items.
