Stainless steel is amazingly sleek when displayed in smooth sheets. Yet adding a bit of texture can certainly make things interesting (and distract from dreaded fingerprints). A tiled surface catches the light, creating an added shine that’s more organic than glitzy. Perfect for modern kitchens!
It is generally the ‘summer colors’ that agree with this style, but stronger hues also seem at home when used with restraint. Remember that whether it is pattern or color, moderation is a mantra that you need to stick to when it comes to the classic Scandinavian look. Cabinets in gentle green or light aqua along with matching chairs in the adjacent dining space take the appeal to a whole new level!
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.
When your backsplash spans the entire length of the countertops, you have the ability to make a strong statement in silver. Let’s take a look at some modern spaces that successfully incorporate stainless steel backsplashes. Stainless steel is the perfect counterpart to white. Note the clean feel of the kitchen below, which is amplified by open shelving with neatly stacked white dishes!
Contemporary kitchen islands come in a wide range of shapes, sizes and finishes and those on display today epitomize the very best of 2016 both in terms of new-age technology and innovative design. From those with brilliant marble countertops to ones that open up to reveal a wide range of shelves and secret compartments, these kitchen islands surely do not disappoint!
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!
