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.

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.

Even though it might come as a surprise to some the most popular kitchens in recent times among homeowners are those with gray walls and cabinets in a light hue ranging from shades of gray to pristine white. Instead of using gray sporadically in the white kitchen designers have flipped the template and have opted to go with gray as the dominant hue in most of the kitchens. The latest kitchen compositions showcased by the likes of Scavolini Leicht and Snaidero reflect this switch even as the kitchens themselves still remain cutting-edge both in terms of aesthetics and functionality.
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.
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.
Copper worktops and islands are also starting to make a bigger impact in the modern kitchen and a smart epoxy resin finish ensures that they are both beautifully preserved and easier to maintain. Copper naturally ages with time and unsealed copper would gradually oxidize and give your kitchen a more timeless look. Surprisingly easy to clean versatile and much more eco-friendly than modern synthetic alternatives copper kitchen countertops offer much more than you would expect.
