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.
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!
We are always looking for ways in which we can that ‘something special’ to the kitchen without having to later too much. A quick kitchen revamp freshens up much more than the cooking and prep zone and adds to the appeal of the entire living space. While most modern kitchens seem to embrace a muted or neutral color scheme with smartly placed accent hues, sometimes going in the opposite direction works just as well. Giving the contemporary kitchen a makeover using black and shades of gray makes it even more sophisticated and striking without forcing you to spend a fortune!
Stainless steel adds a cool-toned breath of fresh air to kitchens featuring wooden cabinetry. The warm glow of the wood is beautifully complemented by the sleek touch of stainless, especially with backsplashes that add metallic style to the walls!
Not to mention, dashes of metallic shine are the perfect complement to industrial spaces. That’s why the stainless steel pots below look right at home in this industrial kitchen! Exposed pipes and a trio of pendant lights complete the look.
