Kitchen Bar May 16, 2017. We begin with wooden bars, a popular choice given the warmth they add to a room. How do you accessorize them? There are countless options… Below we see a special project called the Zero Energy House. Note the streamlined look of the wooden bar, as well as the choice to pair it with white padded seats to create a contrast of dark and light.

These extend across the entire main room, opening it up to the city views much like it is done in the New York lofts. The white walls, columns, and staircase, however, give it a classic Scandinavian look.

The graceful finish of marble acts as a counterbalance to the rough presence of brick and unpolished stone, even as it draws you in with its beauty and magnetism.

In many kitchen and baths, modern cabinetry can be mixed and matched with varying colors and styles to bring together a unified appeal. Depending on your taste, your home and interiors should reflect you and your family’s style and taste. Modern styled cabinetry can transform your kitchen or bath into the space you’ve always dreamed of!

Textured, matte and durable, even when you touch it, it’s hard to believe porcelain is the material. The cabinetry is equally smooth and sleek.

Design May 17, 2017. 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.
