Pick and choose the exact features you wish to incorporate into the single-wall kitchen. One way to maximize storage here is by turning to wall-mounted cabinets and modular shelves that provide both storage and display space. These shelves can be arranged around the kitchen countertop, refrigerator and other appliances to make the most of vertical space on offer without making it seem far too cluttered. Under-cabinet lighting and sconce lights add another layer of functionality to this single-wall kitchen where one even finds a hint of room for an ultra-small breakfast nook.
LED lighting has been around for a while, but strip lights definitely have taken these energy-efficient lighting fixtures to a whole new level. Illuminating even the most awkward of corners, these adaptable lights can be easily incorporated into the design of an existing kitchen with little fuss. From beautiful shelves and smart cabinets to functional countertops and striking kitchen islands, LED strip lights can be used anywhere and everywhere.
We absolute love design that moves away from the mundane and this is no different in case of the breakfast bars either. Do not be limited by the rigid geometry inside modern kitchens and opt for a curved breakfast bar instead! Sure, this demands custom kitchen island, bespoke storage units and a bit of extra work. But the final result will be well worth the extra effort and dough you put in! Small breakfast bars that are an extension of the window ledge, stone breakfast bar blocks and ones crafted using glass stand out from the pack instantly.
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!
Do not limit yourself to strip lights alone when shopping for kitchen lighting fixtures. Apart from the usual dose of pendants that occupy prime position above the kitchen counter, consider LED recessed lights to create a dashing and energy-efficient modern kitchen. All LED lighting fixtures are inherently more planet-friendly than traditional CFLs and are sure to cut back on your home‘s power consumption significantly. So why wait to get on the LED bandwagon?
We are always looking for ways in which we can that ‘something special‘ to the kitchen without having to later too much. A quick kitchen revamp freshens up much more than the cooking and prep zone and adds to the appeal of the entire living space. While most modern kitchens seem to embrace a muted or neutral color scheme with smartly placed accent hues, sometimes going in the opposite direction works just as well. Giving the contemporary kitchen a makeover using black and shades of gray makes it even more sophisticated and striking without forcing you to spend a fortune!
