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 reason this particular color palette is so unique is because the mint hues are definitely making a comeback! They are incredibly popular! It‘s a way to combine modern with retro, the dynamic of the color with the softness of the pastel. Your kitchen will look absolutely gorgeous and every time you step into it will feel like entering into another time!
In spite of all modernistic decor trends, sometimes we simply can‘t help but yearn for the decor principles of times past. Each era carries its own interior inspirations. The 1950s, for example, were the epitome of pastel decor. The kitchens especially were dressed in pastel colors from top to bottom, giving off a soft but dynamic feeling that you can still get in a typical retro American diner. But even though those times have passed, it doesn‘t mean that we have to let go of the charming decor influences; not at all! Take a peek at these 25 pastel kitchens that channel the 1950s and get some inspiration!
Not every kitchen can handle a splash of gray and there are times when both local weather and natural lighting of the room demand a lighters and more cheerful backdrop. This is precisely where white can play the protagonist and gray can be used to delineate space, add depth to various features of the kitchen and to give the shelves and cabinets a modern makeover. White and gray kitchens seem visually larger than they really are and in small urban homes, this becomes an invaluable asset.
Even though it might come as a surprise to some, the most popular kitchens in recent times among homeowners are those with gray walls and cabinets in a light hue ranging from shades of gray to pristine white. Instead of using gray sporadically in the white kitchen, designers have flipped the template and have opted to go with gray as the dominant hue in most of the kitchens. The latest kitchen compositions showcased by the likes of Scavolini, Leicht and Snaidero reflect this switch, even as the kitchens themselves still remain cutting-edge both in terms of aesthetics and functionality.
There are plenty of homes these days where the dining table is a smart extension of the kitchen island. It is barely a surprise then that the breakfast bar can go down the same route. In the larger kitchen, this space can also double as a great party zone where additional counter space can be used in multiple ways both while prepping and hosting. What makes a breakfast bar truly special though is the way it brings together your entirely family after a long, hard day or even during few fleeting seconds each morning as you rush out. Beyond all the aesthetic and ergonomic advantage, this is the true charm of that dashing breakfast bar!
