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.
Even though it is currently the season for warm metallic finishes that include everything ranging from brass and copper to those that mimic the allure of gold do not discard the cooler more silvery finishes all too soon. If you are thinking about an inimitable stainless steel backsplash or kitchen island then do go ahead as they might well outlast the current trends and could serve you well for years to come. Nickel hardware and those with a polished chrome finish never fade away from the limelight and adapt to the existing style of your kitchen with ease.
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.
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.
The timeless appeal of a beautiful kitchen in white and trendy panache of gray at its brilliant best – it is a combination that is bound to turn heads even while exuding understated elegance. Gray and white kitchens are set to top trends charts for a while now and if you already have a kitchen in white then adding a dash of gray to it is all you need to jump in on this cool bandwagon. Easily adapting to different diverse styles a gray and white color scheme brings an air of modernity to even farmhouse and rustic kitchens!
Mixing different metals is a relatively new phenomenon both in the world of interior design and fashion. Once dubbed ungainly and unnecessary it has been revitalized by smart kitchen designers bringing together gorgeous brass and copper finishes along with brighter and cooler metals like stainless steel and nickel to offer the very best of both worlds. This infusion of more than one metal in the kitchen can be done in a subtle yet striking fashion by using antiqued bronze pulls bold copper pendants and even a stainless steel backsplash all in one elegant unique space.
