A beautiful chandelier adds glamour and brings a sense of opulence to the room without altering its color scheme. Styles such as Victorian, Art Deco, Hollywood Regency and even eclectic definitely need this sparkly touch to really give the black and white powder room that unmistakable allure. Add in a couple of chic sconces next to the mirror, and you have a powder room with a ‘high-end’ feel!

Mixing different metals is a relatively new phenomenon both in the world of interior design and fashion. Once dubbed ungainly and unnecessary, it has been revitalized by smart kitchen designers bringing together gorgeous brass and copper finishes along with brighter and cooler metals like stainless steel and nickel to offer the very best of both worlds. This infusion of more than one metal in the kitchen can be done in a subtle yet striking fashion by using antiqued bronze pulls, bold copper pendants and even a stainless steel backsplash all in one elegant, unique space.

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!

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.

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!

Most of us tend to stay away from black because we feel it takes away from the visual spaciousness and lightness of the kitchen. Since the kitchen is already an area of the home filled with shelves, cabinets, appliances and a whole lot more, a white backdrop is generally preferred in favor of something deeper and darker. But careful use of black in the kitchen along with right lighting can turn a seemingly ordinary space into a refined setting that is both posh and practical. A dark, tiled backsplash, cabinets clad in black or even a central island in polished black marble can usher in elegance without feeling overwhelming.

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.
