Dark Kitchens and Countertops
While many homeowners opt for light colors like white for their
universal appeal, a recent trend toward darker colors adds a bit of excitement
and creates a warm, cozy space. From dark counters to black accent walls and
cabinets, the look can be striking, if not a bit overpowering.
A Bit of Color
At the opposite end of the kitchen color spectrum is a
classic white kitchen with the occasional splash of bright color. This could be
a light blue stove and refrigerator or brightly colored red or yellow
cabinetry. Many designs echo the pastel colors from the 50s and 60s, adding a
bit of nostalgia, and retro-style appliances can finish the look.
Adding Warm Colors With Wood
Wood cabinets are making a return, with light-colored
species like ash, beech, or pine adding a bit of warmth without the dark
accents common to walnut or mahogany. Combined with stone counters or flooring,
cabinetry can bring out and compliment the natural coloration of the stone.
Workspace is always at a premium in a kitchen, and by adding
an extra island, you can create two workstations with differing functions. For
instance, with one dedicated to prep, complete with a sink or stove, and the
other supporting a set of bar-height stools, you could work and entertain
Many homeowners are ditching the plain, utilitarian stove
hood for something with a bit more style. From custom steel hoods to painted or
custom-shaped hoods with plenty of unique accents, the modern stove hood is
more than just a way to eliminate cooking fumes; it can now be a piece of art.
Upper cabinets are becoming less and less prevalent in the
modern kitchen design,
with many homeowners opting for open shelving instead. A set of simple,
attractive shelves can make the ideal place to display fine china, your
favorite glassware, seasonal cooking supplies, fresh fruits and vegetables, or
your treasured knick-knacks and heirlooms.
