The modern kitchen island is much more than just a place to prep your food and that is precisely what many of these wonder designs offer. Acting as the central piece to your revamped family and social zone in the open plan living area the elegant island needs to hold everything ranging from basic kitchenware and extra utensils to a few game boards and party decorations that would come in handy on a fun weekend. With built-in cabinets that offer ample storage space and custom units crafted by the likes of Leicht Team7 and Toncelli your kitchen island is set to be transformed forever!
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.
The one-wall kitchen often sees the sink stove and the refrigerator anchored to the same wall with additional cabinet and storage space. But this is definitely not a ‘must’ on all occasions and there are times when you can turn to the dining room nearby for additional storage or even some space for the refrigerator. It is all about creating a kitchen that works for you and your cooking habits.
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.
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!
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.
