Do not be too caught up on using all that space under the island countertop to tuck in a plethora of cabinets. There are times when a couple of open shelves can make a big difference to the kitchen island. These sleek shelves not only alter the aesthetics of the island itself and offer a break from the visual monotony, but also allow you to craft a stunning display that adds to the ambiance of your open plan living. Couple these open shelves with beautiful LED lighting and you have a kitchen island that is both functional and stunning.
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.
Planning for the perfect kitchen island is as much about getting the dimensions right as it is about the extra cabinet space and additional perks it brings. The large, U-shaped kitchen island looks like a tantalizing prospect, but it is a design that only works well in the really spacious kitchens. On the upside, this island allows you to expand on your storage, add more cabinets than usual and lets you combine prep, cooking and serving stations with ease.
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.
