Polished-nickel faucets have always been popular in the kitchen as they proudly sit next to the sink and stainless steel is definitely no stranger to the kitchen thanks to its sturdy and easy-to-clean reputation. But the last few seasons have seen the warm glow of copper finding its way back into the modern kitchen that seems to draw inspiration from an era gone by.

Adding color to your Scandinavian kitchen is a lot simpler than in the case of living rooms or bedrooms that adopt the same style. Chic kitchenware with flower patterns pastel hues that also usher in a breezy summer charm and pops of bright yellow or green that stand out thanks to the neutral backdrop are the most preferred options.

A corner in the open plan living is the perfect space for a single-wall kitchen. This might not fit into the traditional definition of the one-wall kitchen but it sure helps in maximizing space. The corner kitchen is typically L-shaped but you can use just one wall for the kitchen sink refrigerator and prep zone. It is the second wall in the corner that can hold storage units and additional cabinets. Strictly speaking this is not the one-wall kitchen but it still brings the same functionality but with even more cooking and storage space.
