Adding bold metallic finishes to your kitchen need not always be about a striking backsplash or even an expensive copper countertop. Take the less expensive but equally impressive option by simply changing the pulls on your kitchen cabinets from wood to brass or bringing in new pendant lights that usher in a cool copper glint. As we alluded to earlier nickel and chrome are perfect for those who want a cooler metallic shine with a silvery glint and these two finishes are ideal for the smart contemporary kitchen where copper might seem out of place. And if all else fails just a series of open shelves with copper pots and pans on display can make a big impact as well!
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. Decorative strips that put the final touches on the freestanding units and fabulous shelves ensure that each Look kitchen composition has its own unmistakable personality despite the minimal sheen.
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.
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!
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.
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.
