If you cant paint I suggest lucid501's Ribbon Wall, its my new fav. thing for us apt dwellers


And slap a large mirror on the blank wall, instant space!

Try to get a runner rug so that your eye goes to the door that is busy, with a plain celling and a busy floor your eye will look for the room depth (A weird trick casino's use to make you look at the machines)

Just one more idea is you could use fabric on the wall although that may be a bad idea in a kitchen.  Anyway, with the fabric wall you just attach it at the top, bottom and sides with staples into the drywall . . . ummmm, you may have plaster. . . then you cover the staples with cording.  When you move from the apartment you can easily take it down with little evidence.  Smiley

For fabric on walls- the liquid starch method (2.29 for a quart at walmart- versus $ and effort fixing holes) does work well--- though I don't think a kitchen is the best place for it...

I saw contact paper in a brushed steel type metallic pattern the other day--- I think sometime between this weekend and next I'm gonna pic up a few rolls and cover my fridge and dishwasher--- we'll see how it comes out...
