Gone are the days when the kitchen was filled with just polished plastic surfaces and design that was typical of the 90’s ‘cubicle’ trend. Modern kitchens are once again going down the classic route and textural contrast is back in style, big time! With that mind, designers are turning towards both wood and natural stone to provide the necessary contrast even while keeping the ergonomics refined and cutting-edge. Apart from the warmth of wood, it is the exquisite elegance of marble that seems to be the preferred choice as cutting-edge kitchen compositions are being selectively draped in marble.
Most often, it is white marble along with lighter tones of wood that seem to find space in the modern rustic or farmhouse kitchens. But those looking for something far more masculine and dashing can try out black marble countertops or dark grained hardwood.
Some kitchen peninsula designs are more storage-friendly than others. Most of them come with cabinets, but you can choose drawers, cubbies, or shelves instead. It is especially useful in open layouts, where it would benefit from display storage. For instance, a dining peninsula can look all the more impressive with glass tableware cabinets.
