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.
Stainless steel is amazingly sleek when displayed in smooth sheets. Yet adding a bit of texture can certainly make things interesting (and distract from dreaded fingerprints). A tiled surface catches the light, creating an added shine that’s more organic than glitzy. Perfect for modern kitchens!
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.
Don’t forget about the value of open base cabinetry. Even if your open shelving isn’t mounted on the wall, it’s handy on any level. Easy access is the key. Grouping stainless steel items creates a clean look and provides another layer of organization to your kitchen.
Embracing a dash of darkness before you take a bigger plunge is a smart choice when it comes to altering your kitchen’s color scheme. Instead of a full-fledged paint job or even a retiling of the backsplash, start off small by trying out black accents, a gray cabinet door or two or even dark pendant lights above the kitchen counter. Combine the light and dark elements to paint a picture of contrasting synergy that leaves friends and family captivated. White countertops coupled with dark island base, gray bar stools or even just a few black vases on the floating shelves – think small before you settle on the final look.
Let’s not forget the practicality and visual appeal of a pot rack. Wall-mounted pot racks add visual interest and keep cookware in easy-to-reach locations. A dash of stainless steel is the perfect touch in this modern white kitchen.
