The timeless appeal of a beautiful kitchen in white and trendy panache of gray at its brilliant best – it is a combination that is bound to turn heads even while exuding understated elegance. Gray and white kitchens are set to top trends charts for a while now and if you already have a kitchen in white, then adding a dash of gray to it is all you need to jump in on this cool bandwagon. Easily adapting to different diverse styles, a gray and white color scheme brings an air of modernity to even farmhouse and rustic kitchens! Gray has undoubtedly been the hottest neutral for several years now and what was initially pegged as a fleeting trend has now become a definitive style statement in the world of interior design. From being a simple neutral, gray has evolved to play lead role in many a sensational kitchen.
Looking for a kitchen that is inviting and yet carries with it a touch of modern minimalism? Marble is undoubtedly the right choice as a countertop material for such sleek kitchen spaces. Whether it is for the island countertop or just the prep and cooking zone, marble gives the modern kitchen a cultured finish even while ensuring that the neutral color scheme is left undisturbed. The natural strains of the stone still manage to create visual interest even as smart cabinet doors and kitchen islands clad in wood complete your dream kitchen.
The next most popular option when it comes to using LED strip lights in the kitchen are floating shelves and open cabinets. Floating glass shelves with LED strip lights have a certain surreal appeal that transforms them into an instant focal point. Strip lights also allow you to illuminate each individual floating shelf and even the lowest of them all is perfectly lit, eliminating any prospect of ugly shadows. Whether you are displaying fancy china or just fashioning a beautiful backdrop, LED strip lights and open kitchen shelves is a match made in design haven!
Modern breakfast bars are versatile, adaptable and definitely up the style quotient of your kitchen. They come in a wide range of shapes and finishes and each one has a charm of its own. Whether you have an ultra-small kitchen that drives your studio apartment or a spacious kitchen that feels like an extension of the large living area, there is a breakfast bar out there that is ideal for your home.
There is definitely more creative freedom in the large kitchen with a fabulous central island while designing the breakfast bar. Instead of the usual design where the breakfast bar is just a few inches above the island countertop, opt for one that is a few inches below to vary the dynamic of the kitchen. Make sure though that you pick bar stools according to the height of the counter to avoid any future dining hassles.
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.
