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.
The blend of ergonomics and aesthetics is an important aspect of any modern kitchen and Orange Evolution allows you to take this to a whole new level with the use of smart cabinets that present a visually light impression. Large monochromatic units are combined with bright splashes of color and you can later change these compositions with ease to give your kitchen a distinct look and style that fits the existing theme of your home. Large open aluminum-coated bookcase-style shelves give this exciting kitchen another wonderful added dimension both in terms of form and functionality.
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.
Most of us tend to stay away from black because we feel it takes away from the visual spaciousness and lightness of the kitchen. Since the kitchen is already an area of the home filled with shelves cabinets appliances and a whole lot more a white backdrop is generally preferred in favor of something deeper and darker. But careful use of black in the kitchen along with right lighting can turn a seemingly ordinary space into a refined setting that is both posh and practical. A dark tiled backsplash cabinets clad in black or even a central island in polished black marble can usher in elegance without feeling overwhelming.
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. If you have an all-white subway tiled backsplash then think of another section in the kitchen where you can add colorful geometric tiles or even some wallpaper to break the monotony.
Don’t forget about the value of open base cabinetry. Even if your open shelving isn’t mounted on the wall it’s handy on any level. Easy access is the key. Grouping stainless steel items creates a clean look and provides another layer of organization to your kitchen.
