With a non-directional finish you need not worry too much about fingerprints and water stains as well. Cleaning them does not take much of a time or effort and they pretty much go well with any shade and design pattern. Considering all this one can understand why they are becoming more and more popular not just among professionals but in homes everywhere.
The three compositions below epitomize the classic appeal of the single-wall kitchen and yet each one has a style of its own. The first tends to combine farmhouse aesthetics and warmth of wood with appliances and counters in white. The second presents a completely contrasting picture with its dark modern appeal and the last kitchen leans heavily towards an industrial look enhanced by brick and metal. Yet all the three kitchens blend ergonomics of the one-wall kitchen with their respective styles in a fluid and fascinating manner.
Copper worktops and islands are also starting to make a bigger impact in the modern kitchen and a smart epoxy resin finish ensures that they are both beautifully preserved and easier to maintain. Copper naturally ages with time and unsealed copper would gradually oxidize and give your kitchen a more timeless look. Surprisingly easy to clean versatile and much more eco-friendly than modern synthetic alternatives copper kitchen countertops offer much more than you would expect.
Not to mention dashes of metallic shine are the perfect complement to industrial spaces. That’s why the stainless steel pots below look right at home in this industrial kitchen! Exposed pipes and a trio of pendant lights complete the look.
Pick and choose the exact features you wish to incorporate into the single-wall kitchen. One way to maximize storage here is by turning to wall-mounted cabinets and modular shelves that provide both storage and display space. These shelves can be arranged around the kitchen countertop refrigerator and other appliances to make the most of vertical space on offer without making it seem far too cluttered. Under-cabinet lighting and sconce lights add another layer of functionality to this single-wall kitchen where one even finds a hint of room for an ultra-small breakfast nook.
Corner kitchen cabinets are big hit for the obvious reason and you can extend the same logic to your kitchen island as well. For long the corners of the island were left forgotten wasting precious storage and display space. If open shelving is not your thing (not everyone has time to keep their kitchen flawless and organized) then opt for addition shelving that simply slides in when not needed. This also frees up valuable space at the heart of the island for your kitchen appliances. In a small kitchen with a tiny island this minor adjustment can make a huge difference.
