Yes you heard us! The stove is a great place to display a stainless steel pot or two. If you use your cookware on a regular basis this option makes sense. And if you have limited storage it may even be a necessity. The mix of stainless steel and copper pieces in the kitchen below creates a striking contrast.
Customization that is centered around minimal form is the defining aspect of Look and every little detail inside this kitchen and each modular element has been crafted to fit into this larger refined picture. With kitchens increasingly becoming a part of the living room visual Look is crafted to blend in perfectly with the sophisticated contemporary living space ever so effortlessly. Yet even as a standalone design the handleless panel doors and recessed finger pulls smart islands with ample storage space open shelving units and bespoke wooden worktops combine to create a captivating and relaxing kitchen.
The freestanding and adjustable wooden worktop is one of the most useful features of Look that can be mounted on any base unit and offers ample flexibility in terms of both height and width. Decorative strips that put the final touches on the freestanding units and fabulous shelves ensure that each Look kitchen composition has its own unmistakable personality despite the minimal sheen.
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.
While it is easy to add pops of yellow red or green to a kitchen in white and gray colorful accents definitely seem like a thing of the past. Instead of color think of other ways in which you can create contrast without altering the overall appeal of the lovely kitchen draped in neutral hues. Wood is undoubtedly a fine choice as it is both hip and brings a hint of natural effervescence to a contemporary setting dominated by man-made materials. Wooden cabinets and breakfast bars seem to be the popular option here followed by bar stools and floating shelves.
Gray is arguably the most versatile of all neutrals and it can also be used as the primary color in your kitchen while balancing it elegantly with other hues. Darker shades of gray like charcoal bring the magic of black into the kitchen even while providing you with a more neutral option. Bluish-gray is another popular choice in modern kitchens and combining it with warm wooden surfaces or even black metallic accents makes for a stunning backdrop.
