Let’s not forget the practicality and visual appeal of a pot rack. Wall-mounted pot racks add visual interest and keep cookware in easy-to-reach locations. A dash of stainless steel is the perfect touch in this modern white kitchen.
It is generally the ‘summer colors’ that agree with this style but stronger hues also seem at home when used with restraint. Remember that whether it is pattern or color moderation is a mantra that you need to stick to when it comes to the classic Scandinavian look. Cabinets in gentle green or light aqua along with matching chairs in the adjacent dining space take the appeal to a whole new level!
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.
When your backsplash spans the entire length of the countertops you have the ability to make a strong statement in silver. Let’s take a look at some modern spaces that successfully incorporate stainless steel backsplashes. Stainless steel is the perfect counterpart to white. Note the clean feel of the kitchen below which is amplified by open shelving with neatly stacked white dishes!
Planning for the perfect kitchen island is as much about getting the dimensions right as it is about the extra cabinet space and additional perks it brings. The large U-shaped kitchen island looks like a tantalizing prospect but it is a design that only works well in the really spacious kitchens. On the upside this island allows you to expand on your storage add more cabinets than usual and lets you combine prep cooking and serving stations with ease.
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. A revival of styles such as vintage rustic farmhouse and industrial have seen homeowners opt for copper cooking ranges and finishes that play into the overall ‘modern-meets-classic’ theme.
