While it is easy to add pops of yellow, red or green to a kitchen in white and gray, colorful accents definitely seem like a thing of the past. Instead of color, think of other ways in which you can create contrast without altering the overall appeal of the lovely kitchen draped in neutral hues. Wood is undoubtedly a fine choice as it is both hip and brings a hint of natural effervescence to a contemporary setting dominated by man-made materials. Wooden cabinets and breakfast bars seem to be the popular option here followed by bar stools and floating shelves.
Polished-nickel faucets have always been popular in the kitchen as they proudly sit next to the sink, and stainless steel is definitely no stranger to the kitchen thanks to its sturdy and easy-to-clean reputation. But the last few seasons have seen the warm glow of copper finding its way back into the modern kitchen that seems to draw inspiration from an era gone by. A revival of styles such as vintage, rustic, farmhouse and industrial have seen homeowners opt for copper cooking ranges and finishes that play into the overall ‘modern-meets-classic’ theme.
When your backsplash spans the entire length of the countertops, you have the ability to make a strong statement in silver. Let’s take a look at some modern spaces that successfully incorporate stainless steel backsplashes. Stainless steel is the perfect counterpart to white. Note the clean feel of the kitchen below, which is amplified by open shelving with neatly stacked white dishes!
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.
