A subtler and darker shade of mint will make the space look breezier, but just as old-fashioned as you need it to be! The color is definitely beneficial if you are going for a lively atmosphere! The calming pastels make sure it‘s not too vivid and keep it flexible enough to match other decor elements as well, just in case you don‘t want to stick to only one style. You can mix in some dark rustic wood and see how it works with the retro kitchen setting!
The three compositions below epitomize the classic appeal of the single-wall kitchen and yet each one has a style of its own. The first tends to combine farmhouse aesthetics and warmth of wood with appliances and counters in white. The second presents a completely contrasting picture with its dark, modern appeal and the last kitchen leans heavily towards an industrial look enhanced by brick and metal. Yet all the three kitchens blend ergonomics of the one-wall kitchen with their respective styles in a fluid and fascinating manner.
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.
The one-wall kitchen often sees the sink, stove and the refrigerator anchored to the same wall with additional cabinet and storage space. But this is definitely not a ‘must‘ on all occasions and there are times when you can turn to the dining room nearby for additional storage or even some space for the refrigerator. It is all about creating a kitchen that works for you and your cooking habits.
A corner in the open plan living is the perfect space for a single-wall kitchen. This might not fit into the traditional definition of the one-wall kitchen, but it sure helps in maximizing space. The corner kitchen is typically L-shaped, but you can use just one wall for the kitchen sink, refrigerator and prep zone. It is the second wall in the corner that can hold storage units and additional cabinets. Strictly speaking, this is not the one-wall kitchen, but it still brings the same functionality but with even more cooking and storage space.
Kitchen storage units are some of the first things we settle on while planning for a new kitchen. Wall-mounted kitchen cabinets with modular ease can transform your kitchen in an instant. But taking this to next level is under-cabinet LED strip lighting that allows you to easily place these custom cabinets just above the kitchen countertop in a small kitchen. For those short on vertical space or even looking for ways in which they can bring better task lighting to the kitchen counter, LED strip lights offer a convenient and cost-effect option.
