Design May 18, 2017. 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.

Design May 18, 2017. 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.
Design May 18, 2017. The kitchen is an odd room. It’s a space originally designed for cooking but, with time, it has also become a social space where friends and families spend time together, where they chat while someone is making dinner or where they simply gather to socialize.
