The timeless appeal of a beautiful kitchen in white and trendy panache of gray at its brilliant best – it is a combination that is bound to turn heads even while exuding understated elegance. Gray and white kitchens are set to top trends charts for a while now and if you already have a kitchen in white, then adding a dash of gray to it is all you need to jump in on this cool bandwagon. Easily adapting to different diverse styles, a gray and white color scheme brings an air of modernity to even farmhouse and rustic kitchens!
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.
Mixing different metals is a relatively new phenomenon both in the world of interior design and fashion. Once dubbed ungainly and unnecessary, it has been revitalized by smart kitchen designers bringing together gorgeous brass and copper finishes along with brighter and cooler metals like stainless steel and nickel to offer the very best of both worlds. This infusion of more than one metal in the kitchen can be done in a subtle yet striking fashion by using antiqued bronze pulls, bold copper pendants and even a stainless steel backsplash all in one elegant, unique space.
Think of Scandinavian style and the first thing that comes to mind is the color white. As we alluded to earlier, the harsh winters that shaped the style dictated this color choice, as homeowners wanted an interior that was airy, cheerful and moved away from the chill and gloom outside. White is the obvious choice, as it maximizes the available natural light while keeping the visual fragmentation to a minimum. Since white is already a popular hue when it comes to kitchen design, most of us will have little hassle in switching styles.
