Of course, if you love the look of a white kitchen but wanted to stray juuuust a little from the trending all-white kitchen, there are ways to do that with subtle color. Maintain the white feel with unadorned windows, marble countertop and backsplash, and a white farmhouse sink. Throw a pale grey-green color onto the cabinets, then accent with metallic hardware, fixtures, and accessories. The result is a kitchen that feels almost ethereal…without being completely white.
L-shaped kitchens are very common. They are practical because they offer an internal structure that offers a décor that’s perfect for cooking but also for everything else. Whether they are a separate room or they are part of an open floor plan, L-shaped kitchens feature plenty of counter space which can be a crucial detail and that can make the difference between a practical kitchen and one that lacks something important. They also have the shape necessary for also including a kitchen island.
An all-white kitchen has been a kitchen sought after in recent years; the crisp, clean appearance and light airiness of a white kitchen certainly has its appeal! But there are many color options for a contemporary kitchen that still look fresh, with more than a pinch of personality thrown in.
The beauty of adding wooden surfaces to the modern kitchen goes beyond mere textural contrast. It allows you to blend two different styles and add a hint of rustic, farmhouse, traditional or even industrial panache to the stylish, contemporary kitchen. While wood does a great job of lending that natural, rustic appeal, marble acts as a balancing element by elevating the ‘sophistication’ of the kitchen with its polished finish.
This rich, color-infused combination is warm, cozy, and welcoming. It works best with a natural light source, because the colors themselves lean toward the darker end of the spectrum. This updated kitchen is from the slightly post-mid-century modern era (70s), but it couldn’t be more relevant to today’s popular aesthetic.
Time to swap out your boring kitchen island with one that is far more efficient and undoubtedly eye-catching! Marble island countertops coupled with a block of wood that can either serve as prep area or even the breakfast bar is a trendy choice indeed. Another nifty way to blend wood and marble is with an island that has a complete marble countertop but a wooden base and storage units with wooden doors. Matching bar stools and pendant lighting can complete a delightful kitchen that turns heads instantly.
