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.
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.
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.
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.
A kitchen in bluish-gray leads the pack here with other lighter hues of gray following closely behind. When choosing gray as the principle color in the contemporary kitchen, it is best to pick a cooler and lighter shade as it give the space an inviting, light-filled and upbeat vibe. Add in white countertops, bar stools, backsplash or other accent features to create visual interest and contrast.
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.
